Duliajan and Naharkatiya, from which we have filed candidature – voters of both the constituencies rejected us. We have accepted this verdict of the public with our bow. We thank the 24 thousand voters of Duliajan Vidhan Sabha constituency and about 25 thousands voters of Naharkatiya constituency who voted for us in the first step of election. We hope that every newly elected MLA will work for the better future of the nation and Assam. Even if we could not win the support of the majority people, Lurinjyoti Gogoi will always be there for everyone. We will be responsible be responsible for the struggle of establishment of nationalism without compromise by correcting each mistake pointed out at us by the people. We will always and forever be with the people in every crisis in Assam.”
