Elections 2021: Decoding Assam elections

V Nivedita | Updated on April 01, 2021

In this episode of 'The Mandate', we take a look at Assam, where the second phase of polling is underway in 39 constituencies across 13 districts.

In Assam, the BJP government is hoping that the various welfare measures it implemented will help the party win in the State. The Congress is relying on a new alliance formation to come back to power. If we take the vote share from 2016 into consideration, the Congress' alliance would have a higher vote share in 17 seats that the BJP won the last time. In this podcast, we also take a look at other important issues like the CAA, the NRC and how there is a leadership battle in both alliances.
