The Telegu Desam Party on Wednesday alleged that the "so-called" national parties, Congress and BJP, had failed to deliver on promises made to the people of Assam.

"These so-called national parties have failed to fulfil the aspiration of the people of the state which has led to underdevelopment and unemployment," TDP general secretary and Rajya Sabha member Ram Mohan Rao told reporters in Guwahati.

Rao, who is here to campaign for the AGP for next month's assembly polls as part of an electoral understanding, said that going by the response of the people it was sure the regional party would regain power.

"Our party has always stood for regionalism and I am sure that the people of Assam would give AGP one more chance," he said.

AGP spokesman Apurba Bhattacharjee said as the date of polls was nearing, the Congress was getting more and more jittery while the BJP has still failed to project its leadership at the state level.

"AGP is the only alternative and is confident of coming to power," he said.
