Assam Assembly Election Results 2011
Assam is a beautiful state nestled in the north-eastern parts of India. The glorious rivers Brahmaputra and Barak and the scenic hills of Karbi Anglong and North Cachar add to paradise looks of Assam. Assam is spread across 78,550 sq km.
In political terms, Congress has ruled over Assam more than any other party. From 1947 to 1978, Congress enjoyed power without challenge. In 1978, BJP did win the state elections in Assam, but the Govt fell in just two years time. Since then, it has been a race between Congress and main political party, the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP).
Congress is currently in its second consecutive term in Assam and is looking to win the polls again in 2011.
