    Assam: By-Election to One Rajya Sabha seat on March 1

    GUWAHATI: The by-elections to the Council of States of Assam for the constituency that has been vacated following the resignation of BPF leader Biswajit Daimary will be held on March 1.

    Daimary had resigned as the Rajya Sabha MP on November 21 after he left Hagrama Mohilary led Bodoland Peoples’ Front (BPF) and joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) just ahead of the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) polls conducted last December.

    He had resigned from BPF citing differences with Mohilary over the implementation of the BTR peace accord.

    Similarly, by-elections to the Council of states from Gujarat for constituencies that have been vacated following the death of Congress leader Ahmed Patel and BJP leader Abhay Ganpatray Bharadwaj will also be held on March 1.
