Congress releases star campaigners list for Assam Assembly by-polls scheduled for Oct 30

By-polls will be held for a total of five constituencies–Gossaigaon, Tamulpur, Bhabanipur, Mariani, and Thowra.

Assam has a total number of 126 constituencies in the legislative assembly.

The by-elections for the vacant Majuli seat, which was left vacant for the AJP, have yet to be scheduled because its representative, Union minister Sarbananda Sonowal, resigned from the assembly hours after the Election Commission announced the poll schedule.

The Congress won the Thowra and Mariani assembly seats earlier this year, but the MLAs resigned to join the ruling BJP party.
