GUWAHATI, April 7 � At least six to seven Congress party MLAs have expressed reluctance to contest the 2016 State Assembly polls, APCC president Anjan Dutta said today.

�Six-seven MLAs have informed me that they do not want to contest in the elections next year,� Dutta said, replying to a query during a press conference at the Rajiv Bhavan here.

Dutta refused to comment when asked how many sitting MLAs are likely to be denied party tickets.

�There are times when sitting MLAs are denied tickets and then after five years they are again allotted tickets to contest. There are many MLAs in the current Assembly who had that experience,� he said.

The APCC president said that MLAs and leaders from various opposition parties are in contact with Congress and they may join the ruling party in the run-up to next year�s Assembly elections. Dutta however, refused to reveal identity of these leaders.

He even called upon AASU leaders to join the party.
