The All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), Assam’s prominent minority-based party, has unveiled its candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, scheduled for later this year.

The party, known for its focus on minority interests, is set to contest three out of the 14 parliamentary seats in the state. These include Dhubri in western Assam, Karimganj in southern Assam, and Nagaon in central Assam, where Muslims constitute a significant portion of the electorate.

Maulana Badruddin Ajmal, the founder-president of AIUDF, will be seeking re-election from the Dhubri constituency for the fourth consecutive term. Ajmal has consistently garnered more than 40% of the total votes polled in Dhubri since 2009.

For the Nagaon seat, the AIUDF has nominated legislator Aminul Islam, while Sahabul Islam Choudhury will be contesting from Karimganj. Currently, Pradyut Bordoloi of Congress and Kripanath Mallah of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) hold the Nagaon and Karimganj seats respectively.

The AIUDF, previously part of the Congress-led Mahajot alliance, dissolved ties with the Congress following the 2021 Assam Assembly elections. The decision came after both parties faced electoral setbacks, leading to their separation months after the polls.
