Guwahati, May 13: As the polling counting in Assam mulling towards its final phase, it is quite clear that Congress will have a landslide victory in the state for the third consecutive terms.

Tarun Gogoi, who led the party for past ten years, is expected to make a hat-trick and will soon be declared as the Chief Minister of Assam once again.

But with Congress' massive vioctory, according the latest trends, has raised question - whether Gogoi will follow the path shown by AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa in Tamil Nadu.

Jayalalithaa, diminishing DMK's dominance in the state, is believed to be the winner as she was trending ahead by the evening on Friday, May 13. Citing the probable winning results, Jayalalithaa announced that her party (AIADMK) will not form the government with its allies like - DMDK and others.

Describing party chief Jayalalithaa as a "very powerful and strong political leader", AIADMK leader M Thambidurai said she will get a "full majority" to rule the state and "there is no point" in forming a coalition government.

"Therefore, my leader Amma is going to form the ministry alone," Thambidurai, leader of AIADMK in Lok Sabha, said.

In Assam, Gogoi also confronted with Similar kind of situation. Latest trends results show that Congress is going to have a majority win in the state and the party should not have to depend on its allies like - BPF and AIUDF.

On Friday evening, Congress managed to bag 78 seats in 126 total seats. BPF has grabbed 13 seats and AIUDF 15. So, Gogoi soon may follow the path which was adopted by the AIADMK leader, Amma.

However, Assam people have to wait for the Gogoi's crucial decision which may help Congress to resume the rule in Assam.

Meanwhile, the main Opposition party - Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), which is left far behind with only 8 seats (according the trends results), claimed, "manipulation of electronic voting machines (EVM) by the ruling Congress party" caused the landslide victory for Congress.

Citing the trends results, Gogoi asserted, "The trends are on expected lines and as I said earlier, we are forming the next government comfortably. People of Assam voted us based on our performance in the past 10 years."

"We were able to bring in peace to the state and all round economic development and so people voted us back to power," added the hat-trick making CM of Assam.
