SILCHAR, March 16: Candidates of different political parties belonging to Congress, CPM, CPI and SUCI submitted their nomition papers to the Chief Executive Officer of Cachar Zila Parishad, Niren Ghosh, here today. Among them were Amul Haque Laskar, sitting Congress MLA of Soi, Supriyo Bhattacharjee of CPM, Chunilal Bhattacharjee and Moinul Haque, both of CPI, and SUCI candidates Pradip Kumar Deb, Joy Singh Chhetri and Gour Chanda Das. It was the sixth day of submitting nomition papers which began from March 11 and continue till March 18.

It was due to the late declaration of mes by the respective selection committee of the political parties that after a gap of five days, nomition papers began to be submitted. After submitting his nomition, Amul Haque Laskar, who is contesting from Soi for the second term, told the media-persons, “As committed earlier and also according to the declared policy of the party, I shall continue to work for the development of my constituency. It is on this plank that the people have elected me in 2011 and I am confident they will support me this time also.”

Supriyo Bhattacharjee who will contest from Silchar said, “Apart from working for meeting the basic needs and demands of my constituency, I shall always carry forward the party ideals of secularism and democratic values. Our party is always against corruption and commulism and my sustained campaign will be to elimite this bane from society.”

Chunilal Bhattacharjee and Moinul Haque, who are candidates of CPI from Borkhola and Katigorah respectively in identical manner pointed out basically, “Our stand is not different from CPM”.

Pradip Kumar Deb, Joy Singh Chetri and Gour Chanda Das, who are contesting from Silchar, Lakhipur and Dholai respectively on SUCI tickets, said, “We are committed to carry forward the ideals and principles of our party which maintains equal distance from all commul, reactiory and extremist forces and the ideals of uncompromising battle for the larger interests of working class people and farmers. We will continue our fight against corruption, exploitation and oppression of the have not’s.” All the candidates were accompanied by large number of their workers and supporters from their party offices and marched down to the office of the Zila Parishad.

They carried party flags and raised slogans in support of the declared objectives of their parties and candidates. It was a colourful sight as the procession moved through the streets of this town. People on the way watched with curiosity and interest as the processions moved on. It was no doubt like a fun fare. With hardly more than two weeks left for the polling, the heat and dust generally seen during the elections is missing. Perhaps, it will be heating up after the major political parties like Congress, BJP and AIUDF candidates submit their nomitions and kick up electioneering that all the humming and buzzing will fill the firmament.
