BJP and its allies AGP and Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) won a combined 86 seats in the 126-member Assam assembly. BJP had won 60 seats, AGP 14, and BPF 12 seats.

However, this time around, the BPF has joined hands with the Congress-led coalition ‘Mahajath’ after breaking away from the BJP-led coalition. BJP is contesting the polls in Assam in alliance with Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL) alliance.
