BJP sweeps Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council elections, wins all 26 seats

The BJP has swept the autonomous council elections in Assam’s Karbi Anglong district, adding another victory to the party’s list of consecutive wins in polls in Assam since 2016.
The ruling BJP has won all 26 seats in Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council, bettering its 2017 score of 24. The 26 out of 26 result is a record win since the council was formed in 1952.

The results are a massive setback for the Congress, which has struggled to put up a formidable challenge to the BJP since it lost power in 2016.
