STAFF REPORTER GUWAHATI:

BJP UPPL Assembly Seat Sharing Formula: Ending all speculations, the much-awaited BJP-AGP-UPPL seat-sharing arrangement for the ensuing Assembly elections has been completed. Leaders of the parties announced the list of 104 seats at the national BJP headquarters in New Delhi on Friday evening.

The list has excluded the names of 11 sitting ruling BJP MLAs and a Cabinet Minister. Going by the list, former Chief Minister and founder president of AGP — Prafulla Kumar Mahanta, and present Cabinet Minister Sum Ronhang will not get the tickets from their respective parties.

Of the 104 seats, the BJP will field its candidates in 70 constituencies. The AGP and UPPL will contest in 26 and eight constituencies respectively. The State has 126 Assembly seats.

Announcing the list of BJP candidates, the party's national general secretary Arun Singh told reporters in New Delhi on Friday evening that the BJP-AGP-UPPL would contest the elections together. He also said that the list has been chalked out with consensus from leaders of all the three political parties in the presence of the BJP's Central leadership.

Though the BJP has announced its candidates' names for 70 seats, the AGP and UPPL have not yet announced the same.

Singh said that while Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal will contest the elections from Majuli, State BJP president Ranjeet Kumar Dass would fight from Patacharkuchi Assembly constituency. Dass won the 2016 Assembly elections from the Sarbhog Constituency.

Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma will contest the elections from Jalukbari. He said that the decision to change the Constituency of State BJP president Ranjeet Kumar Dass was taken after considering demands of the local party workers.

Former Congress Ministers Ajanta Neog and Gautom Roy — who joined the BJP — have also received tickets to contest the ensuing Assembly elections.

The AGP has left the five seats of Barhampur, Naharkotia, Kamalpur, Lakhimpur and Patacharkuchi to its ally BJP. As of now, the regional party has its sitting MLAs in all these constituencies.

Addressing the media, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said that the BJP has successfully run an alliance government in Assam in the last five years. He further said that his government has been able to bring about peace and progress to the State. "So, the people of Assam will repose their faith in the BJP and alliance partners; and help them to come to power for the second time," stated Sonowal.
