FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT

Silchar, April 5: With Assembly elections concluding, everything looks calm and quite. All the humming and buzzing across the valley of Barak have subsided. Weeks of campaigning, speeches of leaders and public meetings have given way to calmness. The town, which was seen busy and crowded for the past few weeks, has suddenly become still and seems to be in slumber. In their place it seems ture god has sent downpours to cool down the hot atmosphere, reverberating with slogans and blaring microphones so long.

All eyes are now fixed on May 19, the day for declaration of results. Candidates from various parties like BJP, Congress, AUIDF, CPI (M) among others who have contested in the elections are looking forward to their trial. Along with left and other parties in the fringe, Independent candidates have also been in the race. The election has concluded peacefully and the turnout has been impressive, said to be an all time high record in all the 15 assembly constituencies of the three districts of Cachar, Karimganj and Hailakandi.
