Sea change in Cong poll candidates

As many as 70 per cent sitting Congress legislators will miss the assembly polls early next year. Age matters for 10 per cent of them while non performance and dissidence will matter for the remaining 60 percent sitting MLAs whom the party will not allow to contest.

According to an extensive political research conducted by Assam Times during the month of April this year, the party will field only the candidates with winning ability chance.

“Winning ability will definitely matter apart from the performance. But if performance is considered to the yardstick then 50 percent of the MLAs and minister will have to miss the bus. Party leadership have already taken it seriously,” said the research report.

Another factor that is bound the party leadership to step in with utmost care is dissidence. Ten per cent of the ministers and MLAs will have to pay heavy price.

“Ten MLAs are sure of losing the chance who have been doing dissidence to unseat Tarun Gogoi as chief minister. Five other dissident MLAs from upper Assam are not seeking Congress ticket in view of their possible migration to BJP,” said the report.

The research paper has marked 38 ministers and MLAs non performing while 24 MLAs and ministers have been marked as dissident. It further identified 15 legislators who are likely to miss the boat if age factor mattes before the Congress high command.

The news portal deployed  researchers in 126 assembly constituanties to be finalized by a team manned by 5 experts.   

On the other hand, the APCC will not allow the general secretaries to contest time. The decision was finalized when PCC president Anjan Dutta and chief minister Tarun Gogoi met Congress high command in New Delhi on Friday.
