During the campaigning, the BJP spoke widely about the initiatives taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to develop Assam and the Northeastern region, including the inauguration of three bridges in the state.

The Congress and other parties, on the other hand, criticised the BJP's attempt to bring in the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and the alleged failure of the Modi government to fulfill the promises made before the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

The campaign in the third phase was mostly characterised by public rallies, roadside meetings, door-to-door visits and roadshows by candidates of different parties.
