Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti to launch a new party with Akhil Gogoi as CM candidate for Assam Assembly Polls

Akhil Gogoi, Jailed peasant leader has been named for chief ministerial candidate by the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti which is going to launch political party to contest Assam polls 2021.Gogoi was arrested under the amended Unlawful Assembly Prevention Act by  the National Investigation Agency in December last year after Assam was engulfed by major Anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act protests.

The KMSS leadership said in a press conference that the proposed party’s name will be announced by Gogoi after he is released from jail.

“We have prepared ourselves to form a new political party. It will be a regional party. People from all tribes, caste, community, religion and language will be a part of this party,”said Bhasco De Saikia KMSS president.

He added that, the new outfit will be a non-compromising political force and will not be named after KMSS’ earlier venture Gana Mukti Sangram-Asom.

“Because of our non-compromising position, Akhil Gogoi is still in jail. By October, we hope Akhil Gogoi will be released. We trust the country’s judiciary. He will announce the name of the party after coming out of jail. The name of the party is finalised already,” said Saikia.

All intellectual preparation for the new party such as the work agenda and the constitution is ready, he further added.

The party’s agenda will be known as ‘Asombasir Jatiya Karmahuchi’ and its main agenda would be to work for the upliftment and modernization of the Assamese society.

“We will send the constitution and the agenda to all district committees and our sister organisations. Then we will make these public and seek the peoples’ opinion on them”he stated.

Recently plea for Gogoi’s bail was rejected after a special National Investigation Agency court observed that it cannot be said that all the allegations against him are completely improbable.

For now, Gogoi is all set to move to state high court against the bail rejection order.
