"The new delimitation process is in favour of the AIUDF party and the Congress will have a tough time if the national party do not come into an understanding with AIUDF", said the AIUDF party supremo Maulana Badruddin Ajmal and asked " Can they save their Koliabar and Nogaon seats? How many seats can they retain.?" He also said that "If an alliance with AIUDF is not met, the Congress party will get zero seats".

Earlier, the All Assam Students' Union and All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) welcomed the start of the constituency delimitation process in Assam.
The AIUDF general secretary Karimuddin Borbhuyan said that the delimitation should be such that people belonging to all castes and ethnicities can have representations.
''The delimitation should have taken the 2021 census report, not 2001. The process should be scientific.
On the other hand, AASU general secretary Sankar Jyoti Baruah opined that consistency delimitation was a long-pending demand of the AASU.
''The government should discuss the modalities of the constituency delimitation process with all stakeholders,'' Baruah added.
However, the delimitation move received a cold shoulder from Congress.
''The situation in Assam is not conducive for constituency delimitation for various reasons,'' said Congress Legislative Party (CLP) leader Debabrata Saikia.
