AGP announces list of candidates

The Asom Gana Paroshad on Monday has announced the full list of its candidates fielding former minister Gunin Hazarika from Kaliabor and Sabda Rabha from Kokrajhar for the ensuing Lok Sabha polls.

The announcement was made at a press conference in Guwahati on Monday where Bhupen Rai's name was announced as the candidate for Barpeta. The party has fielded tea tribe leader Joseph Toppo from Tezpur contrary to the speculation of fielding Padma Hazarika.

The party has earlier announced Sarbananda Sonowal as candidate for Dibrugarh and Dr Arun Sarma from Lakhimpur. The party has decided to field only six candidates only this time because of the poll alliance with BJP.
