RS polls: Three candidates vie for 2 seats

Guwahati: Congress candidate Ripun Bora along with BJP, UPPL Pabitra Margherita and Rwngwra Narzary have filed nomination papers for the upcoming Rajya Sabha election for 2 seats slated for March 31.

Bora, the incumbent elder, filed his nomination papers accompanied by 43 Opposition MLAs in the morning while Chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma was present when Margerita and Narzary filed their nomination papers before the returning officer on Monday.

The BJP is sure of smooth sailing in one seat (Margherita) while cross voting might hamper the prospect of Ripun Bora much to the benefit of the UPPL candidate.  The polling will take place on March 31. The results are expected on the same day by evening.

The terms for Ripun Bora and Ranee Narah will come to an end on April 2, 2022.
