In West Bengal (West Bengal Elections 2021), campaigning came to a halt at 5 pm on Thursday for 30 seats in the first phase and 47 assembly seats in Assam (Assam Assembly Elections 2021). These seats will be voted on tomorrow i.e. March 27. The first phase of 30 seats in Bengal is spread in tribal dominated Purulia, Bankura, Jhargram, East Medinipur (Part-1) and East Medinipur (Part-2) districts. These areas were once considered to be under the influence of the Left parties.
During the election campaign in these seats, big leaders of the ruling BJP emerging as the main rival of the ruling Trinamool Congress addressed rallies in Purulia, Jhargram and Bankura districts and promised to bring real change to make Sonar Bangla. Prime minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah are among the BJP’s star campaigners for the seats to be voted on in the first phase. Other star campaigners of the BJP included Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, party president JP Nadda and Union Minister Smriti Irani.
At the same time, voters will decide the fate of 264 candidates in the voting in Assam on Saturday. Implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019 is a major issue in the state. This led to protests and violence in the state, although the state BJP is silent on this. This issue was neither heard during the party’s campaign nor did it find a place in the party’s manifesto. However, the party’s national president JP Nadda has commented that it is an act of Parliament and will be implemented.
At the same time, Congress and other parties have assured to bring a bill in the Assembly against it for not implementing it in Assam when it comes to power. Of the 47 seats in the first phase, BJP is on 39 and its ally AGP in 10 is in the fray. On two of these he will also have a friendly fight with the saffron party.
At the same time, Congress is in the fray for 43 seats while its allies AIUDF, RJD, Zonal Gan Morcha (as independent candidates) and CPI-ML are contesting one seat each. The Assam Ethnic Council is contesting on 41 seats while the Raisers party is contesting on 19 seats. In the first phase, 78 independents are also in the fray. According to Election Commission sources, there are also 23 women candidates in the first phase.
