Distancing himself from the UPA, NCP leader PA Sangma has said that he would campaign for the BJP in Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim in the run-up to the ensuing Lok Sabha polls. "I will campaign for the BJP in Arunachal’s West constituency (for Kiren Rijiju) and Sikkim (for S S Ahluwalia)," Sangma told a local news channel late last night. Yesterday in Guwahati, Sangma had cobbled up a non-Congress political forum in the North East comprising 13 parties, which, he said, would aggressively campaign against the UPA in the forthcoming LS polls. The forum North East Peoples Forum included the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), Asom United Democratic Front (AUDF), BJP, Bodoland Peoples Progressive Front (BPPF), Nagaland Peoples Front, Manipur Peoples Party (MPP) and CPI. Sangma, on a campaign to enlist support for the Meghalaya Progressive Alliance demanding revocation of Central Rule in Meghalaya, claimed, "UPA will undoubtedly collapse in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections." Pointing to the rift between the UPA and the LJP and RJD in Bihar, Sangma said the collapse of the UPA has now become 'imminent'.
