    Assam Polls: Congress aims to replicate Chhattisgarh model

    To implement the same strategy and to win the state polls, a team from Chhattisgarh has come and imparting training to Congress workers

    GUWAHATI:  Assam Congress aiming to replicate the Chhattisgarh model in the state polls. Congress had won 70 seats out of 90 in the Chhattisgarh polls.

    The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) which has now fixed a target of winning 101 seats in the House of 126 here, decided to apply the Chhattisgarh model to ensure a victory in the upcoming elections in the state.

    To initiate the groundwork, a team of experts from Chhattisgarh has been roped in and asked to impart training to Assam Congress leaders and workers.

    APCC president Ripun Bora said, “To implement the same strategy and to win the state polls, a team from Chhattisgarh has come and imparting training to Congress workers.”

    Congress has recently ‘modified’ its aim and claimed that it would target at least 100 seats out of the 126 seats in Assam. The party which was claiming to win some 75-80 seats in the ensuing polls a few weeks back has changed its version recently.

    According to Bora the rise in the target was obvious after the formation of the ‘grand alliance’ with Badruddin Ajmal led All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), the regional Anchalik Gana Morcha and three Left Front parties – the Communist Party of India, the CPI (Marxist) and CPI (Marxist-Leninist).

    He said, “We had initially set our sights on 80 seats. But after forming the grand alliance, we are confident of winning at least 100.” 

    Congress’ fresh version came almost a year later BJP and its allies had launched its ‘mission 100+’ in 2020.
