The Himanta Biswa Sarma wave is unstoppable in Assam. BJP-AGP alliance swept the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) polls on Sunday, bagging 58 out of the total 60 wards, while the main opposition party Congress, drew a number same as Rahul Gandhi’s IQ.

Aam Aadmi Party and the Asom Jatiya Parishad (AJP), a local party, secured one seat each. Polls to GMC were held after nine years. The CPI-M, which contested in four wards failed to wrest a single seat. The BJP won in 52 wards, including three uncontested candidates, while its ally Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) clinched six wards.

After winning the polls, the Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma wrote “I bow my head to the people of Guwahati for giving @BJP4Assam & its allies a historic win in #GMCElections. With this massive mandate, people have  reaffirmed their faith on our development journey under the guidance of Adarniya PM Shri @narendramodi ji.”
