Stage set for second phase of polling in Assam; focus on Barak, hill districts

Prominent candidates in the second phase include Parimal Suklabaidya (Dholai), Pijush Hazarika (Jagiroad), Bhabesh Kalita (Rangia), all ministers in the BJP-led government, and the assembly deputy speaker Aminul Haque Laskar (Sonai) — all four are from the saffron party.

Over 7.3 million voters will decide the fates of 345 candidates (26 women) in 13 districts which will go to polls on April 1. In the first phase, polling had taken place in 47 seats in 12 districts on March 27.

Prominent candidates in the second phase include Parimal Suklabaidya (Dholai), Pijush Hazarika (Jagiroad), Bhabesh Kalita (Rangia), all ministers in the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government, and the assembly deputy speaker Aminul Haque Laskar (Sonai). All of them are from the BJP.

The high voltage campaign that saw bigwigs from BJP and Congress touring the state several times in the past week ended on a damp note on Tuesday due to inclement weather.
