Guwahati: The Assam unit of the Trinamool Congress on Friday released its third list of six candidates for the second phase of the state assembly elections after releasing the names of 104 candidates so far.

Releasing the list here, TMC Vice-President J.K.Saikia said the selection process of candidates for the rest of the 22 seats was on.

"In Assam, till now there have only been change of faces. The problems of corruption, lack of economic development, floods, governance have not changed simply because there has not been fundamental changes in the politics followed up other parties," Saikia told reporters.

"We are here to stay. The people will vote for us since TMC stands for a corruption-free government that will reflect the aspirations of the people and work on economic development with social justice," said Saikia.

The decision to field candidates in all 126 Assam assembly seats was the first major political thrust to consolidate TMC's presence in the north-eastern states following its success in Manipur where TMC's K. Sarat trounced Congress? S. Ranjan in the Konthoujam assembly by-poll, he said.
