All India Congress Committee general secretary Mukul Wasik, in a release, named party leader Jowel Tudu for the Gossaigaon seat, Bhaskar Dahal for Tamulpur and Monoranjan Konwar for Thowra.

Congress leaders Shailendra Nath Das and Luhit Konwar have been fielded in Bhabanipur and Mariani, respectively, it said.

The by-polls in Gossaigaon and Tamulpur have been necessitated due to the death of sitting MLAs, while the incumbents in Bhabanipur, Mariani and Thowra resigned from their seats to join the ruling BJP.
