Assam elections: AGP-BJP cooperation

Following the Congress Party's chairman's comments that both the BJP and Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) parties have links with ULFA, the AGP's President has accused the Congress Party of complicity in ULFA's actions. 

The AGP and BJP appear to be cooperating to a degree.  The AGP yesterday announced it would not field a candidate in the seat of BJP Assam president Ranjit Dutta and signalled openness to post-poll cooperation.  Meanwhile ULFA's pro-talks faction has announced it will remain neutral in the lead up to the April 4 and 11 elections.
