Most interesting polls of 2016? - Assam elections

This New Year among all the states. The most interesting elections are going to be witnessed by Assam that is heading for their respective assembly elections.

There are various contributing reasons , since 2001 Congress, which has won three consecutive elections claims in 2014 it will make it 4 in a row despite the Bhartiya Janta Party’s record-win in 7 of the state’s 14 Lok Sabha seats. Assam’s people desperately want a change Bhartiya Janta Party feels that.

Congress has its problems; First reason is, the allegations of internal bickering, misrule and corruption are related to it. Second reason is the steady rise of Badruddin Ajmal’s All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) has already robbed the party of its traditional Muslim vote bank.

Despite the efforts of Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad the AIUDF is unlikely to join maha alliance which is a Bihar-type anti-Bhartiya Janta Party. Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) gradual declining also doesn’t look willing to help the Congress against the Bhartiya Janta Party.

Despite signals from both the parties, Asom Gana Parishad who was once powerful is currently maintaining an equal distance from both.

“With a punch line Don’t underestimate the power of the common man” borrowed from a Bollywood film. The roadsides have been flooded with these hoardings in order to deride BJP’s ‘acche din’.

Himanta Biswa Sarma, deserted of 10 party MLAs, who was once Tarun Gogoi’s most-trusted lieutenant ‘all the diseases’ to the Bhartiya Janta Party had only rid the party. Union sports minister Sarbananda Sonowal has been brought back for Bhartiya Janta Party, it is definitely a very tough battle. It has two major problems: Of 2014, there are many big promises, which remain largely unfulfilled.

Himanta Biswa Sarma’s deeds of the past,Congress has already started campaigning against it. In 2014, BJP had made two most important promises and looks unsure of what to say about it.First is forcing infiltrators from Bangladesh to leave and second is Scheduled Tribe status to 6 communities of the state.

A trailer of what is actually going on will be like in the coming weeks, Assam has already seen it. When a group of Bhartiya Janta Party’s workers had gone to stage a dharna in front of the state Congress headquarters, the workers from both side Bhartiya Janta Party and Congress pelted stones and wielded sticks against each other.

‘The issue’ a derogatory remark about Union HRD minister Smriti Irani and Prime Minister Narendra Modi was made by a senior Congress leader.
