Ajmal tweeted that his party is committed towards supporting a Congress CM in the state.

AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal on Saturday said the party will support a leader from the Congress as the next chief minister of Assam if the 'Grand Alliance' is voted to power. The ruling BJP has been aggressively campaigning that the ongoing Assembly polls in Assam is a "clash of civilization" and to prevent Ajmal from becoming the chief minister of the state.

Ajmal also said that if the coalition of parties is voted to power in Assam they will work equally for all communities. (PTI)

The only agenda of the 'Mahajot' or 'Grand Alliance' government is to implement the "Five Guarantees" of the Congress which was announced during campaigning. The Congress has formed the 'Grand Alliance' with AIUDF, BPF, CPI, CPI(M), CPI(ML), Anchalik Gana Morcha (AGM), RJD, Adivasi National Party (ANP) and Jimochayan (Deori) Peoples Party (JPP) to fight the assembly election in Assam against the BJP-led NDA.

The 'Grand Alliance' has "guaranteed" that if it is voted to power, then a law will be introduced to nullify the CAA, provide five lakh government jobs, 200 units of free electricity to all households, 2000 per month for housewives and raise minimum wages of tea garden workers to 365.
