BTC Election

With the announcement of the schedule of the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) elections, all the political parties including the BJP and BPF have launched aggressive campaigns.

The Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) election is scheduled to be held in two phases on December 7 and 10.

Assam health minister and senior BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma was in the BTC areas recently to campaign for the saffron party in the BTC election.

Even as the BJP and the BPF are coalition partners in the Sarbananda Sonowal-led government in Assam, both the political parties are separately fighting the BTC election.

Soon after Himanta Biswa Sarma’s hurricane campaign for the BJP, other political parties including the Bodo People’s Front (BPF) have pulled up their socks to launch a massive campaign to woo support of the electorates.

Despite the COVID19 pandemic, the political parties are organising rallies, undertaking door-to-door campaigns and making tall promises to bring about all-round development in the Bodo-dominated areas.

The Bodoland Peoples Front (BPF) Baukhungri constituency candidate Doneswar Goyary on Wednesday inaugurated Town Primary Committee office at RNB road and held a meeting with party workers and supporters as part of his election campaign.

Goyary claimed the BPF will win the elections with majority and will lead the Bodoland Territorial Council for the fourth time under the leadership of Hagrama Mohilary.

The BPF candidate expressed confidence of his winning from the Baukhungri constituency claiming to have done a lot of works for the people of the area.

Other political parties including the UPPL and Congress have also started campaigning in different areas, and are trying to reach out to the electorates.
