AIUDF draws blueprint for 2014 Lok Sabha elections

BY OUR STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, July 8: There is time for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, but political parties across the country has already began their preparation and blueprints for achieving an absolute majority are also being prepared.

In Assam too, the political parties have began their election preparations for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections of 2014. The All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) has already prepared their blueprint and is set to go all guns blazing to win the Nagaon and Silchar Lok Sabha constituencies, which currently has Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs. According to AIUDF sources, BJP’s Rajen Gohain has been able to win the Nagaon constituency on successive terms as because he has the support of the Bengali Hindu community. To counter this, the AIUDF has almost finalised of nominating an influencial Bengali Hindu leader from the Nagaon constituency. The AIUDF believes this way they will not only be able to counter BJP in the Nagaon constituency, but also win it.

Similar strategy will be adopted by AIUDF in the Silchar Lok Sabha constituency to snatch the constituency from BJP. The AIUDF, in Silchar too, will nominate and Bengali Hindu candidate and try to win the seat comfortably. The AIUDF will contest in 10 different constituencies and they are confident of winning 5 of them quite easily. There is also a chance that AIUDF will nominate a Bengali Hindu candidate at Karimganj and an Assamese Hindu candidate from the Guwahati constituency.

On the other side of the borderline, AIUDF’s declaration has put the state BJP camp into complete jitters.  To brighten their chances of winning maximum seats in the Lok Sabha polls, the party is all set to begin its campaign in full throttle from August 1 next.

BJP National VP and Assam observer SS Ahluwalia will kick start the BJP campaign in Assam when he will visit the Barak Valley from the first week of August and held various talks and discussions at the grassroots. He will visit each and every single Lok Sabha constituency and will interact with the commoner and will strongly vouch for the security of the Bengali Hindus of Barak Valley, which can only be provided by the BJP. Later on, he will visit different areas in the Brahmaputra Valley. Ahluwalia’s one month stay in Assam will be of great importance for BJP.

On the other hand, BJP will declare the list of its candidates by the end of this month. Barring Lakhimpur, Dibrugarh and Diphu, BJP’s candidates’ list for the remaining constituencies is almost final. Though it is expected that State BJP president Sarbananda Sonowal may contest from Lakhimpur or Dibrugarh, yet he is not certain as to constituency to choose from.

In Dibrugarh, defeating Union Minister Paban Singh Ghatowar will not be easy for Sonowal. In Lakhimpur too, the BJP president will have to contest against Union Minister Ranee Narah, but defeating Narah looks much easier than defeating Ghatowar. But again, in Lakhimpur and Dhemaji, the organisational strength of BJP is weak and this may go against Sonowal. Confused due to these two factors, the BJP president has held his nomination back.

Again in Diphu, the BJP is yet to find a strong tribal leader. The previous BJP leader Kulendu Doulagapu joined Congress and BJP is trying their best to bring him back to the party. If he returns, then it will be Doulagapu who will be BJP’s face in Diphu, and if he doesn’t return, then BJP will have to find a strong alternative.

According to BJP sources, current MP and National VP Bijoya Chakraborty will re–contest from the Guwahati Lok Sabha constituency. The other candidates are– MP Ramen Deka (Mangaldai), MP Rajen Gohain (Nagaon), Ajit Bhattacharyya (Silchar), Parimal Suklabaidya (Karimganj), Ramprasad Sarma (Tezpur), Kamakhya Prasad Tasa (Jorhat), Amiyo Bora (Koliabor), Ashwini Rai Sarkar (Dhubri) and either CK Das or Sankar Das from Barpeta.
