Top leaders of AGP-BJP combine are hoping that vote transfer would be smooth - in the 2004 general elections, Sonowal won the Dibrugarh seat polling 220,000 votes, while the BJP came second with 202,000 and the Congress managed to get about 170,000 votes.
"I know it is not as simple as it appears when it comes to vote transfer. Let us admit this ground reality," Sonowal said with a hint of bother in his face. "But I am confident I will get support from all the communities."
