The Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) is witnessing a surge in political support, with workers from various parties choosing to align with it. 

On November 24, the BPF experienced a significant boost, with a total of 136 members defecting from the BJP and UPPL to join the party.

In a joining program conducted in Chirang, workers from the BJP and UPPL officially became part of the BPF. The presence of BPF Vice President Khamfa Borgoyari witnessed the expansion of the party’s membership with the inclusion of the new members.

The majority of the recent additions to the BPF come from villages situated within the Bijni and Kokrajhar Lok Sabha seats. Among the new members are Bijen Basumatary, the former BJP candidate for the Subhaijhar seat in the previous assembly elections, and senior UPPL leader Dhiren Basumatary.

Regarding the increase in BPF membership with workers from other parties ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, BPF Vice President Khamfa Borgoyari stated, “The UPPL has not fulfilled its commitments and has been unsuccessful in fostering development in the BTR region”. 

“Public trust in the UPPL has diminished, leading people to express support for the return of BPF to power under Hagrama Mohilary. A significant number of individuals are now actively joining the BPF”, he added.
