The opposition AIUDF on Wednesday announced the names of candidates for by-elections to two assembly seats in Assam. The Badruddin Ajmal-led party named Jubbar Ali for the Bhabanipur constituency and Khairul Anam Khandakar for the Gossaigaon seat.
Voting will be on October 30. The by-election in Gossaigaon was necessitated due to the death of sitting UPPL MLA Majendra Narzary, while the AIUDF incumbent in Bhabanipur, Phanidhar Talukdar, joined the BJP.
Talukdar has been given a ticket by the BJP to seek fresh a mandate in the Bhabanipur seat.
