The 13th Assam Legislative Assembly election was held in two phases on 4 and 11 April 2011 to elect members from 126 constituencies in Assam, India. The result was announced on 13 May. BJP was accused of turning the anti-immigrant feeling in Assam into a Hindu-Muslim row. The election resulted in a landslide victory for the Indian National Congress and its incumbent Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi was sworn in for the third straight term. Tarun Gogoi becomes the second Chief Minister (the first was Bimala Prasad Chaliha) to be elected Chief Minister for the third consecutive term.
