Assam Rajya Sabha Election 2022: Polling for 2 seats begins today

Voting for the two crucial Rajya Sabha seats will begin from 9 am today and conclude at 4 pm. While the victory of BJP candidate Pabitra Margherita is almost confirmed

Voting for the two crucial Rajya Sabha seats will begin from 9 am today and conclude at 4 pm.

While the victory of BJP candidate Pabitra Margherita is almost confirmed in one seat, all eyes will be on the contest for the second seat where UPPL candidate Rangaura Narzary is locking horns with Congress candidate Ripun Bora.

As a matter of fact, Narzary needs only 2 votes to seal victory in the polls.

While Congress MLA Sashikanta Das has outrightly extended support for the ruling dispensation, it is yet to be seen whether Narzary can manage to secure the votes of two more MLAs from the opposition.

The suspense will be broken only at 6 PM today when the results are finally out.

Worth mentioning is that both the ruling alliance as well as the opposition held crucial party meetings last night ahead of the polls.

While Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma chaired a key meeting with BJP MLAs until midnight, the Congress too held marathon meetings to discuss on the Rajya Sabha polls.
