SILCHAR, April 21 - Two days after the second phase of polling for the Lok Sabha election, speculation of winning are doing the rounds in the camps of all the political parties and even became the most debated matter of discussion among the commoners in Barak Valley.
Official sources claimed that while Silchar parliamentary constituency witnessed a massive voter turnout of 79.40 percent, voters� turnout in Karimganj was 73.15 percent this year.
Amidst all the hypothesis, Congress candidate from Karimganj Swarup Das claimed that he is confident of coming out with flying colours by defeating the cobweb of political polarisation on communal lines by the BJP and AIUDF to bag votes.
�Even though the election ended peacefully, it was fought with communal politics as the gameplan. Congress believes in its secular stance and I hope to be blessed by the voters,� Das was quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, BJP�s Kripanath Mallah sounded optimistic while saying, �based on the quantum of work done by his party during the past five years and also in the state, people would want this development spree to remain uninterrupted.�
