The Bharatiya Janata Party is encountering a significant setback leading up to the upcoming North Cachar Hills Autonomous Council elections, with discussions of several leaders contemplating resignations from the party.

In the midst of this situation, Joysing Durong, a former councillor elected from the 17 Garampani constituency in the previous term, has submitted his resignation from the party. Voicing dissatisfaction due to not receiving an election ticket, the BJP councillor opted to resign and plans to run as an independent candidate.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) presently governs the North Cachar Hills Autonomous Council in the Dima Hasao District of Assam. Elections for the council in 28 areas are scheduled for January 8, with a potential re-vote on January 10 if needed.

“Some reasons alleviate the fear of leaving the BJP in Dima Hasao district. Individuals denied BJP tickets are contemplating departure and running independently, including Joyching Durung, a councillor from the 17 Garampani constituency in the previous term. He feels compelled to take a stand due to public pressure. Joyching Durung’s dissatisfaction, along with public resentment against the BJP, has grown recently,” stated a member of the BJP.

Alok Kumar, the State Election Commissioner of Assam, has announced that the vote counting is slated for January 12. Nomination submissions are accepted until December 21, and scrutiny is set for December 22. There are around 141,124 registered voters in the state, distributed across 280 polling stations.

Out of these, 100 are categorised as sensitive, and 27 as highly sensitive, necessitating enhanced security measures such as the presence of a micro observer and the installation of CCTV cameras. The distribution of voters is nearly equal between genders, with 70,485 male voters and 70,639 female voters.
