In The Last Assembly Election, The AGP Won 14 Seats. Meanwhile, AGP Sources Said Prafulla Kumar Mahant, A Two-Time Former Chief Minister And Six-Time MLA Who Is The Founder Of The Party, May Not Get A Ticket This Time. Mahanta Is Currently Unwell In Delhi And Is Undergoing Treatment. However, He Has Dropped Out Of The Current AGP Leadership On The Subject Of Citizenship Law. Sources Said That If The Mahant Is Not Given A Ticket, There May Be A Split In The AGP.

If Sources Are To Be Believed, The Names Of About 74 Candidates For The Assam Elections Have Been Decided, But Its Formal Announcement Is Awaited. At The Same Time, A Local Party Will Merge With The BJP And One Or Two Candidates Of That Party Will Contest On The Symbol Of BJP. In 2016, The BJP Won 60 Of The 84 Seats Contested, Benefitting 55 From The 2011 Results.

The UPPL Has Recently Formed An Alliance With The BJP. In 2016, The AGP Won 14 Out Of 24 And The UPPL Had Fielded Four Candidates But Had No Success.

The Bodoland People’s Front (BPF), Which Left The Congress To Join The BJP-Led Coalition Before The Election, Won 12 Of The 16 Seats. However, The BPF Has Returned To The Congress.

Assam Will Go To Polls In Three Phases On March 27, April 1 And April 6, While The Results Will Come On May 2 With Other States. The BJP Came To Power In Assam For The First Time In 2016 And Is Working Hard To Retain Power In This Election Under The Leadership Of Star Campaigners, Prime Minister And Home Minister Amit Shah.
