GUWAHATI, May 26 - At least 30 legislators, including eleven from the Congress and nine from the BJP, are losing support in their Assembly constituencies, if the results of the Lok Sabha elections are any indicator.
Among them are minister Chandan Brahma and Congress bigwigs Debabrata Saikia and Wajed Ali Choudhury. Congress legislators Rupjyoti Kurmi, Kamalakhya Dey Purkayastha and Rajdeep Goala also saw their support bases eroding in their home constituencies.
There are 11 Congress legislators, nine from BJP, one AGP, three AIUDF and six BPF legislators in whose constituencies the opponents got more votes.
In Opposition leader Debabrata Saikia�s constituency Nazira, BJP candidate Topon Kumar Gogoi got some 2,000 votes more than the Congress nominee.
In Chandan Brahma�s Sidli, Independent candidate Naba Kumar Sarania got 10,000 more votes than the BPF candidate. Sarania also got more votes in Gossaigaon, Kokrajhar West, Bijni, Tamulpur and Chapaguri where the sitting legislators are from BPF.
The Lok Sabha election results will also leave BJP legislators Ashok Kumar Singhi (Bilasipara East), Aminul Haque Laskar (Sonai), Kishor Nath (Barkhola), Amar Chand Jain (Katigora), Suman Haripriya (Hajo), Narayan Deka (Barkhetry), Gurujyoti Das (Mangaldai), Dimbeswar Das (Raha) and Angoorlata Deka (Batadroba) scratching their heads as the opponents got more votes than the candidates of the NDA. In Batadroba, the Congress candidate got 30,000 more votes than the BJP-supported AGP candidate. Similar is the case in Mangaldai, where the Congress got 23,000 votes more than the BJP.
In Kamalakhya Dey Purkayastha�s Karimganj North, the BJP candidate got 62,000 votes, while the AIUDF nominee got 47,000 votes, leaving the Congress with just 28,000 votes. Similarly, in Rupjyoti Kurmi�s Mariani and Durga Bhumij�s Doomdooma, the opponent BJP nominees got 14,000 and 40,000 more votes than the Congress.
The BJP-AGP combine also led the vote tally in three constituencies where the sitting legislator is from the AIUDF � Katlichera, Abhayapuri South and Bhabanipur.
In Sarupathar where the sitting MLA is Congress� Roselina Tirkey, AGP�s Kaliabor candidate Mani Madhav Mahanta got 25,000 more votes than the Congress.
