    Assam: Phase 2 of BTC election on Dec 10, 104 candidates in fray

    Voters in the 19 constituencies falling under Kokrajhar and Chirang districts shall head to the polling booths in their bid to elect the new administration in the BTC polls.

    Guwahati: The fate of 104 candidates will be determined by 14.22 lakh voters in the first phase of Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) elections to be held on Thursday.

    BJP, Bodoland People’s Front (BPF), and the United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL), and the Gana Suraksha Party (GSP) are contesting the elections solo. Meanwhile, the Congress and the AIUDF parties are contesting together, in what is being seen as a precursor to an alliance for the Assembly Polls for 2021.

    Voters in the 19 constituencies falling under the Kokrajhar and Chirang districts shall head to the polling booths in their bid to elect the new administration in the BTC polls.

    The voting time has been scheduled from 7:30 am till 4:30 pm on December 10.

    In the second phase of polling, 14,22,028 voters will decide the future of 104 candidates by exercising their franchise across 1,055 polling stations. Votes will be cast in 19 constituencies across the two districts.
