Guwahati: Senior journalist Ajit Bhuyan filed his nomination papers on Friday for the Rajya Sabha election which is scheduled to be held on March 26.
Bhuyan filed his nominations at Assam Legislative Assembly. He was accompanied by former chief Minister and veteran Congress leader Tarun Gogoi, AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal and Assam Pradesh Congress Committee president Ripun Bora.
The Congress and the AIUDF declared their support for senior journalist Ajit Bhuyan at a media conference on Wednesday. Bhuyan is representing both the parties as a common candidate for the upcoming Rajya Sabha elections.
“Ajit Bhuyan has filed the nomination being the common candidate for Congress and AIUDF. As Tarun Gogoi said earlier, our alliance will continue after 2021 elections, and I support and agree with him. We, the anti-CAA protesters from Assam have come together as a family for a reason and I believe BJP won’t dare to put up any candidate for the third Rajya Sabha seat,” said AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal.
