Captain Robin Bordoloi’s brother Bolin Bordoloi and minister Akon Bora’s son Manash Bora along with two others are applying for ticket from Guwahati.

Apart from sitting MP Bjoy Krishna Handiqui, Samir Gogoi and Nibha Konwar also want to contest from Jorhat seat. Gogoi, the son of Assembly Speaker Pranab Gogoi submitted his papers on Friday while Konwar, the wife of Tripura Governor Devananda Konwar filed her application on Saturday.

These would be screened by a panel to be referred to the AICC screening panel before high command’s nod.
