 Present Political Scenario:

 Why BJP is looking good here?

This is a Bijoy Chakravarthy and BJP stronghold where they lost only in 2004 because of AGP taking away a lot of votes in Boko, Chayagaon and Palasbari assembly segments.

Now AGP doesn’t have any base left here, so the contest would be between Congress and BJP, the former has nominated Manas Bora, who won the much taunted “primaries”,

AUDF cutting a small section of Congress’s minority votes, BJP is sitting pretty in Gauhati.
