Congress workers stab BJP supporters who came to cast their votes in Assam

Former CM Tarun Gogoi's son and current MP Gaurav Gogoi is seeking re-election from Kaliabor

Three people were reportedly injured in a tussle between Congress workers and BJP supporters at a polling station during the first phase of Lok Sabha elections yesterday in the Nagaon district of Assam.

According to the reports, Congress workers had allegedly stopped BJP supporters from casting their votes at the Futajar High Madrasa polling station at Rupahihat in Assam’s Kaliabor Lok Sabha constituency. The situation quickly devolved and exacerbated when a former panchayat president of Futaljar village panchayat named A Hannan attacked a BJP supporter identified as Zahirul Islam with a knife. Besides Zahirul, two other BJP supporters Khairul Islam and Moinul Haque were also injured in the scuffle.

The injured were immediately taken to the hospital and an FIR was also lodged against the attackers at Rupahihat police station on the complaint of the injured against A Hannan. The police have initiated the investigation and an operation is underway to arrest the assaulters.

Former CM Tarun Gogoi’s son and current MP Gaurav Gogoi is seeking re-election from Kaliabor, where he is being helped by AIUDF by not fielding any candidate. Gogoi is facing tough competition from AGP’s Moni Madhab Mahanta, who is contesting on behalf of NDA. Kaliabor is one of the three seats allotted to AGP.

So while the opposition keeps clamouring about democracy in danger, Rahul Gandhi’s supporters in Assam actually tried to put to democracy in danger by trying to forcibly prevent BJP supporters from exercising the fundamental duty of casting their votes.
