Assam Election Result Highlights: Asom Gana Parishad wins 9 seats; Bodoland People's Front wins 4

Assam Election Result 2021 Highlights: BJP will clinch a comfortable win in the north eastern state as the alliance crosses the half way mark which stands at 64.

Assam Election Result 2021 Highlights : Counting of votes is underway for the Assam assembly elections. BJP is leading comfortably over Congress-led alliance. BJP-led NDA is leading in 77 of the 119 seats, show trends available on the Election Commission website. Key candidates from the ruling alliance, including CM Sarbananda Sonowal, Himanta Biswa Sarma, are leading in their respective
seats. The ruling BJP hopes to return to power with its allies in the northeastern state. The ruling BJP is facing a challenge from 'Mahajoth' or 'Grand Alliance' comprising the Congress, AIUDF, Bodoland Peoples' Front (BPF), CPI(M), CPI, CPI(ML) Liberation, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Anchalik Gana Morcha (AGM). The BJP has an alliance with the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), the United People's Party Liberal (UPPL) and the Gana Suraksha Party (GSP). In 2016, the saffron party had scripted history by winning the traditionally Congress-dominated state after remaining on the fringes. Polling was held in three phases in Assam on March 27, April 1 and 6. Election Commission has said that Assam will have a maximum of counting halls. The EC has banned victory roadshows and vehicle rallies amid surging COVID-19 cases.
