WIll BJP Field its candidate in Lilong Assembly Constituency?
No candidate for Lilong Assembly constituency was announced. Lilong Assembly Constituency will also go to polls after its Ex-MLA who was elected on Congress ticket resigned from MLA ship during the trust vote for N Biren Singh’s BJP led coalition government. It may be recalled that N Biren government survived the trust vote following mass exodus from the Congress MLAs.
All the Ex-MLAs from Congress joined BJP except Muhammad Abdul Nasir, Ex-Congress MLA from Lilong Assembly constituency. All the Ex-MLAs joining BJP are expected to get BJP ticket as a return gift.
Ex-Congress MLA, Abdul Nasir seems to non-committal of joining BJP. Given the circumstances, it is still not clear if BJP will field its candidate in Lilong Assembly Constituency
