In 2014 Lok Sabha election here, BJP's Bijoya Chakravarty registered an absolutely stellar win by decimating Congress' Manash Borah by over 3 lakh votes. Others like AIUDF's Gopi Nath Das and Asom Gana Parishad's Birendra Prasad Baishya - placed third and fourth, respectively - did not stand a chance against the former member of Janata Party who had also been a member of AGP. The voter turnout figure was 78.67 per cent.
