February 28, 2021: Ahead of the Assembly elections in the state, the Bodoland Peoples' Front (BPF) on Saturday announced to join the Congress-led coalition 'Mahajath' after breaking away with the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP)-led alliance.



Taking to Twitter BPF leader Hagrama Mohilary said, "To work for Peace, Unity, and Development and to bring a stable government, free from corruption in Assam, the Bodoland Peoples' Front (BPF) has decided to join hands with the MAHAJATH”.





The BPF will no longer maintain any friendly relation or alliance with the ruling BJP, he added.



The relations turned sour during the recent Bodoland Territorial Council elections, with the saffron party dumping the BPF and forming the council government in alliance with the UPPL and GSP.



The Congress, which was in power for 15 years in Assam since 2001, has formed a ‘Grand Alliance’ with AIUDF, CPI, CPI(M), CPI(ML) and Anchalik Gana Morcha (AGM) to contest the upcoming assembly elections.



Assembly Elections in the state will be conducted in three phases — on March 27, April 1 and April 6.
