Earlier, the top Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leaders and Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president decided not to participate in the consultation process of the ongoing delimitation exercise, following no suitable response from the Election Commission of India (ECI) despite repeated reminders, the ECI, on the other hand, has extended an invitation to the Congress delegates to meet the Commission.
The ECI in a statement requested the Congress delegates to join the consultation process with respect to Delimitation and benefit the process by making it inclusive and participatory.
It said that they are already given time to the Indian National Congress (INC) delegation ahead of everyone else at the very beginning in New Delhi on January 4, 2023.
