The draft proposal for delimitation of Assam’s assembly and parliamentary constituencies has sparked a blame game between the Congress and the ruling BJP.

Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi has alleged that his Lok Sabha seat has been dismembered for political motives a year before Lok Sabha polls, CM Himanta Biswa Sarma has welcomed the Election Commission’s draft proposal and accused some people of trying to cook up a communal issue. 

Soon after the draft proposal was out last evening, CM Sarma wrote, "The draft delimitation published by ECI today stipulate that the current Jalukbari constituency, which I have represented since 2001, will no longer exist as it has been divided into three parts. I am feeling very saddened by this news. However, I welcome the draft paper as it accurately reflects the sentiments of Assam (sic)." 


Hitting out at those opposing the draft proposals, CM Sarma said, "I want to ask them, are the Bodos and Karbi people not indigenous? This is for the first time that some tribal communities of North Bank will get an opportunity to represent themselves."

The draft plan, he said, protects the rights of both tribals and non-tribals.
