Some people who missed the bus are mulling contesting polls as representatives of other parties or independents.

Speaking about the claim, BJP’s Assam unit chief Ranjit Kumar Dass said on Sunday at a joint press conference with AGP and United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL), “This happens in every election. Candidates are selected keeping in mind the best interest of the party and overall picture.”

Dass said people believe in BJP and AGP, as the state government has succeeded in all ramifications in the last five years. BJP is heading the coalition government which also had Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) as a constituent.
