Guwahati: The BJP on Thursday charged the ruling Congress in Assam with entering into a "secret understanding" with the minority-dominated All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) in a bid to form the government after the assembly polls.

Releasing BJP's "44 point charge sheet" against the Congress, BJP general secretary and state's election in-charge Vijay Goel claimed that according to a "reliable source", there was a meeting between AIUDF president Badaruddin Ajmal and senior Congress leaders Salman Khursheed and Saifuddin Soz in New Delhi recently where Ajmal was promised deputy chief ministership.

"This amounts to selling out Assam to the Bangladeshi infiltrators for the sake of power and has revealed the true colours of the Congress," Goel said.

"Badaruddin is only a spokesperson of the Bangladeshi infiltrators and their interest which is posing a grave threat to the people of the state," he claimed.

Goel welcomed the stand of Bodoland Peoples Front chief Hagrama Mohilary, a Congress ally, that he was prepared to join a non-Congress government in the state, and said the Bodo party had realised the "danger posed by the Congress".
