2021 Assam Assembly Election Vote Counting Highlights: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is continuing to hold on to its early leads against the Congress-led Grand Alliance. So far, the trends are out for 123 seats – BJP is ahead in 77 and Congress in 47. Exit polls had predicted BJP’s win but the scale of its leads is bigger than expected. In Assam, the contest is the BJP-led NDA and eight-party grand alliance led by the Congress.
Except for two, almost all exit polls had predicted return of the saffron party government for the second consecutive term. If the exit poll numbers hold today, it would be a big blow for the Congress, which was hoping to return to power after five years and that is why it also allied with Badruddin Ajmal’s AIUDF.
