by Guwahati_City


Guwahati: A total of 7, 96,829 voters will decide the fate of 197 candidates in the 60-member Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) elections.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has fielded 40 candidates, giving added importance to the GMC elections while the ruling BJP is making all-out efforts to win the polls.

After its success in the recent Punjab Assembly elections and buoyed by its first taste of success in two municipal wards in Lakhimpur and Tinsukia districts in last month’s civic polls, the AAP is seeking to expand its base in Assam and in the northeastern region.

The AAP’s Delhi MLA Atishi, who undertook a hectic campaign for the party and its Assam state coordinator Baren Chowdhury said that the party would form the board by winning a majority of the seats.

Chowdhury said that Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal has been promoting morality in politics and such principles would facilitate the party to expand its base in Assam and other northeastern states. The AAP is trying to present itself as the alternative to the two national parties — the BJP and the Congress — in the GMC elections.

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma led the BJP’s election campaign and addressed multiple rallies across the city while Assam Pradesh Congress President Bhupen Borah led the state’s main opposition party on its campaign trail.

The political parties both national and local, have gone all out to woo the people promising a flood-free, crime-free and development-centric city with piped water to all households besides the availability of all other basic civic amenities.
