In an electoral showdown likened to a modern-day Mahabharata, Congress leader Gaurav Gogoi clinched a remarkable victory over the ruling BJP's Topon Kumar Gogoi at the prestigious Jorhat Lok Sabha seat in Assam. The contest was fierce, with Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma spearheading a robust campaign.

Defying the odds, Gaurav Gogoi secured the seat by a substantial margin of 1,44,393 votes. Despite no national BJP figures campaigning, the state's top leadership was heavily involved, highlighting the battle's significance. In contrast, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra led a significant roadshow in support of Gaurav.

This victory not only demonstrates Gaurav's growing political influence but also echoes his earlier successes, including initiating the no-confidence motion against the Modi government in 2022, which resonated largely with the youth. Gaurav continues to emerge as a key figure in Indian politics.
