Notably, the Assam Congress, on Monday, had announced that it has severed ties with the AIUDF and ousted the Ajmal-led party from the Grand Alliance. 

The Assam Congress broke its alliance with the AIUDF saying that “AIUDF leadership’s continuous and mysterious praise of the BJP party and the Chief Minister has affected the public perception of the Congress party”. 

The Assam Congress said: “Mahajot alliance partner AIUDF’s behaviour and attitude in relation to BJP party has baffled the members of the Congress party.” 

“…after a long discussion the Core Commiittee members of Assam Pradesh Congress Committee unanimously decided that AIUDF can no longer remain an alliance partner of Mahajot and in this regard will send intimation to AICC,” the Assam Congress added.
