The Congress in Assam is all set to go solo in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.
Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Ripun Bora on Friday said that as of now Congress is determined to contest alone in the coming election.
“We will contest alone in the coming election. But we will closely monitor the developments related to poll process,” said Bora.
The APCC president said that BJP will be their main opposition.
Referring to the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) Bora said that Congress party will issue a whip for its members in the Rajya Sabha.
“February 13 is the last day of this parliament session. Although there is no inclusion of the Bill in the Business list of the Rajya Sabha, we can’t take it easily” he said adding “on 12th our part will issue a whip to all the members in the Rajya Sabha for their presence.”
He said that Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday decided that Congress will vote against the Bill.
The APCC president said that only because of vote bank politics ‘BJP is trying to get the Citizenship Bill passed.’
