West Bengal, Assam Assembly Election 2021: PM Modi appealed to voters to excercise their franchise.



New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today urged people in West Bengal and Assam to go out in large numbers and vote in the first phase of the elections to the state assemblies.

“The first phase of elections begin in Assam. Urging those eligible to vote in record numbers. I particularly call upon my young friends to vote,” PM Modi tweeted minutes after polling began in 47 seats in Assam, particularly calling upon young voters.

In his message for Bengal, the Prime Minister, who is on his Day 2 of his Bangladesh visit, tweeted, “I would request all those who are voters in the seats polling today to exercise their franchise in record numbers.”

PM Modi tweeted is vote appeal for the two states in Assamese and Bengali as well.

Today’s polling will decide the fate of 191 candidates in 30 assembly constituencies in West Bengal and 264 candidates in 47 seats in Assam.

In Bengal, the ruling Trinamool and the opposition BJP – who have waged a high-stakes, sometimes shrill and often vicious campaign over the past few weeks – will both be eager to make a strong start. The Congress-Left alliance – widely expected to finish a distant third – is also in the mix. In Assam, the BJP faces a challenge from the Congress-led ‘mahajot‘, or ‘grand alliance’ to retain power. In the 2016 Bengal election, the Trinamool won 26 of these 30 seats. In Assam, the BJP produced a similar performance to win 35 of 47 seats.
