BJP Will Form Govt, Says Sonowal as Trends in Saffron Favour; NDA Crosses Majority Mark
The majority mark in Assam is 64. The BJP is looking to create history in the state by becoming the only non-Congress government to win consecutive terms. However, for the saffron party, this election was very different from the other states as Assam was the only place where it was fighting to retain power.
Counting of votes for the Assam assembly elections began at 8 am Sunday amid strict health protocols, as it is taking place amid a raging second wave of COVID-19.
A three-tier security apparatus has also been arranged at the 331 counting halls across the state that voted in three phases on March 27, April 1 and April 6.
