MORAN, March 18 – RTI activist Akhil Gogoi today announced to launch an independent political party through his peasant organisation Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) to fight the 2016 Assembly polls in Assam, reports PTI.
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 the 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 new politics, a new struggle,” Gogoi said in his inaugural speech at the 4th Biennial Convention of the 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 politics to snatch power from the Congress, BJP, AGP and AIUDF and throw them into the dustbin of politics,” said Gogoi, who is president of the KMSS.
He said the new party would be dedicated and honest in its struggle to achieve peoples’ power in the true sense.
“If we want only seats and power, then it will be politics of the Congress, BJP, AGP and AIUDF. It will be the politics of exploitation. If anyone of you has come here with the hope of getting ticket in the Assembly polls, then you are living in a fool’s paradise,” said Gogoi, who is a close aide of Anna Hazare.
