KALAIGAON, Dec 5 - Despite hectic electioneering by political parties about to come to an end, however, it is still not clear which party will form the BTC government in Kokrajhar. Election will be held in all the 10 constituencies of Udalguri district on December 7. Three major political parties, namely UPPL, BPF and BJP have left no stone unturned to woo the voters with so many promises, thereby leaving a sizeable section of voters confused.
The BJP this time is trying very hard to win the BTC election with Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal attending several election rallies in the BTC region. Health, Finance, Planning and Development Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has also visited most of the BTC constituencies in Udalguri district. A recent secret deal between the BJP and UPPL may topple the apple cart of the BPF, feel political observers. As per the latest election observation, contests will mostly be limited among UPPL,BPF and BJP in most of the ten constituencies in Udalguri district. BTC election will be conducted separately in sub-divisional HQ Bhergaon and at the district HQ Udalguri.
