Congress sweeps the Tiwa autonomous council polls in Nagaon and Morigaon six months ahead of the assembly polls.

The ruling party got absolute majority in the Tiwa autonomous council polls in the two districts with 15 seats out of 31.

Tiwa Aikyo Manch got 9 seats while BJP had to remain satisfied with 3 seats followed by AGP in one seat. Morigaon has 19 seats apart from 11 seats from Nagaon.

Amid tight security arrangement, votes were taken for counting at 8 in the morning which ended at 6 in the evening.

Meanwhile, Congress and TAM winners are celebrating the victory bursting fire crackers in many places while BJP leadership said that it would have hardly any impact on the assembly polls.
