    The ruling BJP is contesting in 34 seats and its allies, the AGP, in six and the UPPL, in three, with friendly contests in four constituencies-two each with the AGP and the UPPL. The Congress is contesting in 27, its partners the AIUDF in eight and BPF in four. The newly formed Assam Jatiya Parishad is contesting in 17 seats while 174 independents are also in the fray. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has said that the Congress party-led Grand Alliance will implement its poll promise of 'five guarantees'. The 'five guarantees' include 'nullifying' the CAA in the state, providing five lakh government jobs to youths in five years, 200 units of free electricity, raising the daily- wage of tea garden workers from the current Rs 193 to Rs 365 and Rs 2,000 per month to homemakers. On the other hand, the BJP has been banking on development work done in the past five years and certain schemes promised in its 2021 Sankalp Patra. The promises include free education, flood-free Assam, scooty/cycle to girl students and increased financial assistance to pregnant tea garden community women.
