About Silchar:

Situated in the Cachar district of Assam, Silchar is the administrative seat of the district, besides also being a part of the Municipal area of Assam. Situated in the southernmost regions in the state of Assam, the Silchar parliamentary constituency is located by the banks of the Barak River, popularly called the Barak Valley.

The economy in the Silchar parliamentary constituency is reliant on crops such as tea, rice and other agricultural products. It also survives on limited industry such as paper-making and tea-box manufacturing. However, the Cachar district which is entirely covered by this Lok Sabha seat has been announced as a backward district in the country, being fed by governmental funds under the scheme of Backward Regions Grant Fund Programme. The total population of the Silchar constituency is 2,28,985 as per the 2011 Census.

Political Background:

This constituency is an important seat of the Congress, as not only did the party win a majority of the terms in the Lok Sabha from the Silchar constituency, but the present Union Minister , Sontosh Mohan Dev of the Congress, has been elected as the MP from Silchar for five terms.

 Present Political Scenario:

Why it may again turn out to be tough seat for BJP?

Kabindra Purakayastha has been re-nominated from Silchar but once again requires a big vote-split between Congress and AUDF to emerge victorious.
