People from Assam and West Bengal kicked off the first phase of a month-long poll process at 7 am on Monday where the BJP is looking to expand its footprint into regions it has been traditionally weak.
Polling in 65 constituencies of upper Assam and Barak Valley (southern part bordering Bangladesh) will determine if the BJP can snatch the state away from the three-time Congress chief minister Tarun Gogoi.
Bengal elections will be carried out on seven days. The first phase has two days, the first one today (Monday) and the second one April 11.
Polling in 18 constituencies in Maoist-infested districts of West Midnapore, Purulia and Bankura in West Bengal may serve as a barometer for CM Mamata Banerjee to assess whether the tragic Vivekananda flyover collapse in Kolkata has any adverse resonance outside the city.
