    GUWAHATI: Popular folk singer Kalpana Patowary, who also known as ‘Bhojpuri Queen’, has been fielded to contest from Sarukhetri seat by the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), an ally of the BJP coalition.

    She had joined AGP in October 2020 at an event held at party’s head office in Guwahati.

    Soon after Patowary joined AGP, the party leadership appointed her as the brand ambassador of the party.

    AGP declared her candidature on Friday via a tweet. The party has on Thursday declared its second list of six candidates for the upcoming state assembly polls. Earlier on Sunday, AGP had declared its first list of eight candidates.
