Guwahati: Exuding confidence ahead of the crucial polls in Assam, the state's BJP president Ranjeet Kumar Dass claimed that the saffron party is likely to make a clean sweep in the upcoming elections.BJP,

Today, Dass claimed in front of media persons that the BJP party is likely to win as many as 84 seats if the elections are held at once.

At the same time, the BJP President brushed aside any perceived threat from the newly forming alliances that are taking shape ahead of the elections in the state.

Dass said that no opposition – be it the Congress-AIUDF front or the All Assam Students' Union (AASU) led regional front – shall be able to defeat the BJP in the polling booths come 2021.

I the current Assembly, which expires on May 31, 2021, the BJP has as many as 60 members. After adding the MLAs of the alliance partners (AGP and BPF), the total strength of the BJP in the Assembly is 87.

On the other hand, the opposition parties (Congress and AIUDF) have a cumulative total of 37 MLAs.

"If elections take place today, we will definitely win 84 seats. But we have set the target of 100," Dass said today.

Meanwhile, the Congress and AIUDF parties are eyeing a grand alliance ahead of the polls to tackle the might of the saffron power, which is also buoyed due to its alliance with the largest regional party, the AGP.

At the same time, the AASU, which continues to be a key player in Assam's political sphere, has started taking baby steps towards formation of another regional power that will seek to rattle the BJP come election time.

Yesterday, the AASU and fellow regional student body Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chhatra Parishad (AJYCP), announced an 18-member panel to suggest ways to firm up their plans for a grand alliance, thereby giving a fresh thrust to the idea of forming a new political party ahead of the elections.
