An alumnus of the Jawaharlal Nehru University, Bordoloi was appointed as con- venor of the North East Congress Coordination Committee (NECCC) in August last year.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has, on Tuesday, come up with a proposal for the Congress for seat sharing in Delhi in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
As per the proposal, the party offers the Congress to contest from one seat while the AAP will contest six seats in the national capital.
An announcement to this effect has been made by the AAP leader Sandeep Pathak at a press conference after a meeting of the party’s Political Affairs Committee.
The AAP leader said the party abides by the ‘dharma of alliance’, and offers a seat for the Congress while it shall contest on six seats without going into the merit of the decision.
In case, the talks with the Congress party on seat sharing in Delhi do not work out, the AAP’s national general secretary (organisation) said the party would announce its six candidates and begin with the preparations for the polls.
He pointed out that the Congress at presents doesn’t have a single seat in the assembly polls, nor does it have a single seat from Delhi in the Lok Sabha as it managed to have just nine seats in the MCD.
On the seat-sharing in Punjab, he said the party respects the decision of the two parties to contest the elections separately.
The AAP leader said an announcement would soon be made on Haryana, Chandigarh and wherever the talks were on for seat sharing.
As regards the seat-sharing agreement with the INDIA bloc, he said as per merit Congress has two-thirds of the share while AAP has one-third while the party had asked for eight seats and proposed that the Congress shall contest 18 seats.
He said the AAP would announce candidates for six seats in Gujarat soon, as the party has announced two candidates for Gujarat and South Goa.
Earlier, the party had announced the candidature of Chaitar Vasava from Bharuch in Gujarat.
He further said, “We will have to see how the alliance can defeat BJP.”
