AGP, BJP unhappy with schedule

AGP and BJP are not happy with the poll schedule announced for Assam by the Election Commission on Wednesday.

Both the parties would request the country’s poll panel to reconsider the schedule.

AGP and BJP leaders said that Ashokastomi falls on April 7 when the polling will take place in Jorhat, Dibrugah, Kaliabor, Nagaon, Tezpur and Lakhimpur.

Similarly, on April 12 polling will take place in Diphu, Karimganj, Silchar two days before the Rongali Bihu.

The Opposition parties have alleged that the country’s poll panel could not assess the scenario in the absence of proper interpretation of the state Government.
