Assembly polls from today in Assam, Bengal
Assam CM Tarun Gogoi and his BJP challenger Sarbananda Sonowal will be among those testing the electoral waters as Assam and neighbouring West Bengal go to polls on Monday. The electoral race is seen to be running close in Assam where BJP has teamed up with Prafulla Kumar Mahanta’s AGP and Bodoland People’s Front to take on Congress.
In Bengal, Congress and the Left have teamed up to take on frontrunner Trinamool, which has been jolted by the `Narada’ sting and the flyover collapse in Kolkata. Polling will take place in 65 of the 126 Assam assembly seats and 18 of 294 seats in Bengal.
