Finally, BJP seat share done in Assam
Finally, the BJP has come to terms with the distribution of seats among its allies. With a total of 126 seats, BJP will enter the ballot ring in 92 seats. The Assam Gana Parishad (AGP) will contest in 26 seats. BJP allies are contending for another eight seats. But another smaller party is also set to merge with the BJP. It seems that one or two members of that party are contesting in polls with the BJP symbol. However, the BJP has already finalized its candidates for 84 seats. The list is set to be released on Friday evening.
However, AGP president and two-time chief minister Propulla Kumar Mahanta will not be contesting this time, the party said. The party sources said he was being treated in Delhi due to ill health. If Mahanta is not contesting in the Assam elections, some suspect that the party is in danger of splitting into two. In this context, questions arise about the political future of the AGP. The BJP is pretty confident to return to power this time. However, the Bodoland People's Front gave a strong counter to the BJP. They(Bodoland People Front) challenged the BJP how they win this election when they are contesting with Congress this time instead of them.
