Guwahati: Expressing surprise over alliance
partner Asom Gana Parishad`s decision to snap electoral
understanding with it, BJP today said it will go it alone in
next year`s assembly poll in Assam and produce better result.

"The AGP had declared during the Lok Sabha polls last
year that BJP was its elder brother and had formally signed
the election pact till 2011," BJP state unit president Ranjit
Dutta told reporters here.

Besides, AGP had not formally informed BJP of its
decision to snap ties, Dutta said his party was prepared to
fight the ensuing assembly election alone.

In the last Lok Sabha poll BJP had a better showing in
Assam than AGP but still the regional party blamed the
alliance for its defeat which was `unfortunate`, he said.

"AGP`s decision will be judged by the people of the
state," he said adding BJP had started preparations in 80 of
the total 126 assembly seats in the first phase.

He also came down heavily on the Congress government
of Tarun Gogoi saying it had failed to solve the infiltration
problem and the border dispute with Nagaland.
