Meanwhile, Assam Congress has exuded confidence that the grand-old party is heading for a landslide victory in the Assam Assembly elections.

“With the first phase of polling underway in Assam, clear signs of a landslide victory are emerging,” said senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Mallikarjun Kharge.

“The BJP has acceded defeat and is trying to save face. People’s strong support for Congress’ 5 Guarantees that are visionary, realistic and that deal with the core issues of Assam has forced the BJP to resort to desperate measures trying to hide its performance card and the headmaster too. Distorting facts and fooling people won’t help too. This election is about the Congress Guarantees vs BJP’s unfulfilled promises and the result is clear to the entire state- a landslide victory for Congress,” Assam Congress said.
