The Surat East seat is seat number 159 out of 182 in the Gujarat Legislative Assembly. This seat is located in Surat district and its Lok Sabha seat is Surat. This seat is considered a BJP stronghold. Gujarat held its first assembly elections in 1962, after it was carved out of Bombay. Since then the Congress was winning this seat.

But in 1975, Kashiram Rana contested and won the election on a Bharatiya Jana Sangh ticket. Although he was defeated in 1980, Madanlal Kapadia won the seat in 1990 on a BJP ticket and since then the seat has been won by the BJP.

Papiya Dutta is BJP candidate from Agartala for Tripura elections

Tripura, which was seen as a bastion of the Left parties, saw the BJP in office for the first time in 2018

Papiya Dutta is BJP candidate from Agartala for Tripura elections

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has announced the name of Papiya Dutta as its candidate for the Agartala assembly seat for the ensuing Tripura elections.

BJP’s Central Election Committee made the announcement on Sunday. This came a day after Congress announced the name of its candidate for Agartala. Congress named Sudip Roy Barman as its candidate for Agartala.

Both parties the BJP and the Congress have announced their candidates for the Tripura assembly polls on Saturday with the state set for a multi-cornered contest in the February 16 election for 60 seats in the state assembly.

Congress announced 17 candidates, while the Bharatiya Janata Party published two lists with 48 and six candidates, respectively. Additionally, the agreement between the BJP and IPFT was confirmed. Five seats are up for election by IPFT.

Union Minister Pratima Bhoumik, a candidate for the BJP, is from Dhanpur. The party has not offered tickets to six of its incumbent MLAs for the 2019 elections.

The MLAs that were refused tickets include Vimmi Majumdar, Subhash Chandra Das, Arun Chandra Bhowmik, Virendra Kishore Dev Burman, Parimal Debbarma, and Viplav Kumar.

The state assembly elections are coming up, and the incumbent chief minister Dr. Manik Saha will run from the Town Bordowali district.

Tripura, which was seen as a bastion of the Left parties, saw the BJP in office for the first time in 2018.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah, and party chief JP Nadda were among those present at the Bharatiya Janata Party Central Election Committee (CEC) meeting on January 27.

The nomination period ends on January 30. The voting will take place on March 2.

Nine states, as well as possibly the Union Territory of J&K, will have assembly elections in 2023. Given that there will be Lok Sabha elections in 2024, these elections are more significant.

The tone and atmosphere of the major conflict will be established by these state polls. For instance, if the BJP loses in several states, it will inspire the opposition and make it clearer whose leaders have the most negotiating leverage to be prime ministerial contenders.
