Moran (Assam): RTI activist Akhil Gogoi on Wednesday announced to launch an independent political party through his peasants organisation Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) to fight 2016 Assembly polls in Assam.

The new party, the name of which has not been made public yet, will fight elections against the ruling Congress and opposition BJP, AGP and AIUDF in the state.

"The political party from KMSS will fight for farmers, labourers, middle-class -- in short the exploited class of our society -- and for the basic facilities they need. We will start a new politics, a new struggle," Gogoi said in his inaugural speech at the 4th Biennial Convention of KMSS here.

The party will usher in "the actual politics" and will fight for the basic rights, foods, accommodation and fresh air for the common people, he added.

"We will fight till our last breath to get our rights. We will fight to change our economic system and for social uplift so that every farmer gets ownership of land. It will be a politics to snatch power from Congress, BJP, AGP, AIUDF and to throw them into the dustbin of politics," said Gogoi, who is the President of KMSS.

He said the new party will be dedicated and honest in its struggle to achieve peoples' power in true sense.

"If we want only seat and power, then it will be politics of Congress, BJP, AGP and AIUDF. It will be the politics of exploitation. If anyone of you have come here with a hope to get ticket in the assembly polls, then you are living in a fool's paradise," said Gogoi, who is a close aide of Anna Hazare.
