Heaping misery on the grand old party, BJP and its ally UPPL have claimed all five seats that went to polls in Assam earlier this week. As per the latest data from the Election Commission, BJP's Sushanta Borgohain emerged victorious over independent candidate Dhaijya Konwar in the Thowra seat by a margin of over 30,000 votes. In Mariani, Rupjyoti Kurmi, running on a saffron ticket, beat out Congress' Luhit Konwar by a margin of more than 40,000 votes. ,cricket betting tips india
In Bhabanipur, Phanidhar Talukdar of the BJP kept Sailendra Nath Das of the Congress at bay to claim the seat. The constituency of Gossaigon witnessed a battle between UPPL's Jiron Basumatary and Congress' Jowel Tudu, of which the former won with a margin of 28,252. And UPPL's Jolen Daimary trounced independent candidate Ganesh Kachary by over 56,000 votes in Tamulpur. ,soccer jersey maker online
In the run-up to the bypolls, the seats of Mariani and Thowra had emerged as high-stakes seats due to what ensued following the Assembly elections held about six months ago. ,tennis court oath of revolution
Bypolls in the two seats were necessitated after the two incumbents opted to jump ship from the Congress to the BJP. Four-time Congress MLA and tea tribe leader Rupjyoti Kurmi did so in June and was followed by two-time Thowra MLA Sushanta Borgohain who had been affiliated with the grand old party since his youth. Both candidates had expressed a desire to serve under the leadership of Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, citing “internal differences” as the reason for their defections. ,football matches today list

The contests in the two seats were labelled as crucial since both constituencies lie in the larger Upper Assam belt where ethnic sub-nationalism sentiments prevail. The many seats in this region also reflect the “indigenous” Assamese and the caste-Hindu electorate. The BJP's victory is a clear sign of the political stability that has emerged under the leadership of CM Sarma. His decision to bring in the two turncoats has paid dividends.
What's more, in claiming the two seats from the Congress, the BJP has also further consolidated its position as the senior partner in the ruling coalition. In the last assembly election held in March and April this year, the BJP had won 59 seats with its allies AGP and UPPL winning an additional 14. ,tennis atp 2021
With Mariani, Thowra and Bhabinipur now in the bag, the BJP has taken its share to 62. Meanwhile, the Congress won 29 seats with its partners AIUDF and BPF winning 16 and 4, respectively. However, the opposition coalition soon collapsed and the Congress decided to contest all five seats that went to bypolls last week. Its poor showing, however, now means that it has, for all intents and purposes, been completely washed away in the Upper Assam belt. ,play poker with friends real money
Political commentators have noted that, in losing the seats of Mariani and Thowra, trust in the grand old party to implement the ethnolinguistic agenda of Assam is at an all-time low. Once strongholds of the Congress, Mariani and Thowra now falling into the hands of the BJP is more evidence of the inroads the saffron party has made in the state since 2014. ,easy spirit tennis shoes womens
