GUWAHATI: With the high-voltage polls in the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) having officially come to an end, all eyes will now be turned to the results, which will be declared on December 12. Already debates and discussions have begun and experts and pundits are weighing in with their predictions. Inside Northeast too has conducted extensive analysis and after carefully going through the patterns and trends in each of the 40 Constituencies across the 4 districts, we have come up with the Inside Northeast exit polls.

For the two-phase polls, a total of 3,146 polling stations were set up across the BTR. Of the total 23,82,036 electors, male voters number 12,03,008 and female voters 11,79,020 besides eight ‘third gender’ voters.

BAKSA : Inside Northeast sources and experts have predicted that the contest in Baksa will be between the BJP and the BPF. The BPF is likely to win 5 out of the 11 Seats in the district.

Total number of constituencies under Baksa District -11

BJP: (4) BPF:(5)              UPPL:(1)             GSP:(1)         AIUDF/CONGRESS:(0)         OTHERS:(1)

There will a tight contest between UPPL & GSP in the Koklabari constituency. UPPL may win in that constituency. There will be a tight contest between BJP and BPF in Nagrijuli and Baksa.

Total number of constituencies under Udalguri District -10

BJP: (4) BPF: (3-4) UPPL:(2-3)  GSP-(0)     AIUDF/CONGRESS:(1) OTHERS:(0)

As the BJP’s candidate in Harisinga is a former ABSU leader, so many of the voters of the UPPL will now cast ballots in favour of the BJP. AIUDF has a chance to win the Dhansiri seat as it is dominated by minorities.


Total number of constituencies under Kokrajhar District -12

BJP: (0) BPF: (4-5)    UPPL: (6)           GSP:(0)     AIUDF/CONGRESS: (2)            OTHERS:(0)

In Chirang district, UPPL is likely to win in four constituencies, BPF in two, and BJP (in alliance with AGP) has contested in Thuribari constituency where BJP may win.


At the moment, it seems like the popularity of Promod Boro might propel the UPPL to become the single largest party in the BTC. However, with several leaders being championed as potential CEM, it is still too early to predict the next Chief of the Council. As it stands, much will depends on the forging of alliances.
