Thrilled over the trends of Assam poll results, which manifested that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has ascendancy over its rivals, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said that BJP and its regional allies are all set to come back to power in Assam.
The BJP and its allies, Asom Gana Parishad and United People’s Party Liberal, were leading in 77 of the 119 Assembly seats for which the figures were made available by the afternoon. The BJP was leading with around 62 seats, while the Grand Alliance forged by the Congress was ahead in 40 places. Meanwhile, the United People’s Party Liberal has almost seven constituencies and AGP ahead in 10.
Moreover, The BJP and AGP did quite well in the northern, eastern, central parts of India and took an impressive lead. Congress candidates are leading in almost 26 seats, while those in All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) in 11 and Bodoland People’s Front in around three.
However, the majority mark in the state of Assam is 64, making BJP the only non-Congress government to create a history and win consecutive terms. The Assam elections were a bit different as it was the only state where it was fighting to clutch power.
BJP has been leading with the help of its alliances, the United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL), Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), and the Gana Suraksha Party. Moreover, the ruling party has contested around 92 seats, while AGP has contested 26 seats. Furthermore, the Congress contested 94 seats, while AIUDF has contested almost 14 seats.
