Congress candidates list almost finalised for Assam assembly elections

GUWAHATI: The wait for a list of Congress candidates for the Assam assembly elections scheduled for March 27, April and 6 is almost over with a list almost finalised after a hectic day of screening of candidates.

Big guns such as Ripun Bora, Rakibul Hussain, Debabrata Saikia, Rana Goswami and few orders are almost certain to contest from their existing constituencies. Bora’s name, however, figured along with his wife Manika Bora as a co-aspirant for the Gohpur seat. Similarly, Paban Singh Ghatowar’s name also figures along with his son Pranjal Ghatowar in Moran.

Hussain, Saikia and Goswami are almost certain to retain their Samaguri, Nazira and Jorhat seats. Former minister Ajit Singh is also a certainty for Udharbond.
