The sitting Kaliabar MP Gaurav Gogoi, accompanied by Akhil Gogoi, Rakibul Hussain, Rekibuddin Ahmed, Debabrata Saikia, Bhaskar Jyoti Baruah, along with thousands of party workers, supporters, and top Congress and alliance party leaders, took out a padayatra across the main thoroughfares of the town.

After filing his nomination papers, Gaurav Gogoi told media-persons that the massive response from Congress party workers, supporters, along with those of the alliance partners, well-wishers, and general people towards him across the entire Jorhat parliamentary constituency, has clearly indicated that winds of change were blowing to wrest the seat from BJP this time.
