Assam: Cong declares candidate for Lakhimpur LS seat


 The Congress named Uday Shankar Hazarika as its candidate for the Lakhimpur Lok Sabha constituency in Assam on Saturday.

Shankar Hazarika is expected to be in a direct contest with incumbent two-term BJP MP Pradhan Baruah, with the constituency going to the polls in the first phase on April 19.

The Congress is contesting 13 out of the 14 seats in the state, and though the party announced candidates in 12 seats on March 12, the nominee for Lakhimpur was not declared.

Congress is supporting the Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) in Dibrugarh.
