Early trends show BJP leading in Assam

Guwahati : The early trends show that in Assam, the Bharatiya Janta Party is leading in the state.

BJP is leading in 26 seats and congress alliance is ahead in 13 seats.

The Assembly polls in Assam were held in three phases from March 27 to April 6. This year, there is a tough clash between the Congress-led ‘Mahajot’ alliance and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The BJP, which is banking on the Modi wave, is looking to retain power in Assam for the second straight term. If the exit polls are to be believed, then the BJP, which won 86 out of 126 seats in Assam in 2016, will get another term in the state.
However, the Congress, which ruled the state for 15 years till 2016, is looking to make a comeback in Assam. The party has also rejected the exit poll claims, saying it “fought a good election unitedly” and will wait for “the final verdict of the people”.
