Assam polls 2021: meet underway at Amit Shah's residence to finalise seat-sharing

Mar 03, 2021 21:58 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and his Cabinet colleague Himanta Biswa Sarma arrived at the residence of Home Minister Amit Shah in New Delhi on Wednesday to finalise seat-sharing pact ahead of the the Assam assembly polls.

The BJP and its two Assam allies, the AGP and the UPPL are expected to finalise by today the number of seats to be contested by each party.

While the AGP, which won 14 constituencies in the 2016 assembly elections, may get around 22 seats to contest, the UPPL, which is a new partner of the BJP and does not have any MLA now, is expected to get around 12 seats to contest, news agency PTI reported quoting sources.

After the joint meeting, the BJP leaders are expected to meet separately at the residence of BJP President JP Nadda to scrutinise the list of candidates for the polls in Assam.
