NAGAON, Dec 24: The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), which came to power after the six-year-long historic Assam agitation, has been trying to get back to power since 2001 after it lost the elections. The party has been losing its grip in the State since other opposition parties paved their way in the Assam politics.
Senior citizens and grassroot-level workers of the party have, therefore, cautioned the party members to organize membership drives and to actively participate in local matters as well to organize meetings to discuss the problems of the people at the grassroot level.
Party followers opined that the present situation of the party was because of the apathy of the AGP leaders who seem to be least bothered with their diminishing political status. Moreover, the grassroot level workers have alleged that top members of the party never took the initiative to look into their problems and this ultimately loosened the bond among them. This also gradually led to the lessening of any party work in the lowest level, which happens to be the foundation of a party. the sentinel
