DHUBRI, March 29 - After filing of nomination paper by AIUDF supremo Badruddin Ajmal for the 4-Dhubri Lok Sabha seat here on Thursday, the BJP-AGP-BPF jointly declared former MLA of Mankachar Jabed Islam as their nominee today.

The two-time consecutive MP for the constituency with minority-dominated voters, Badruddin Ajmal was able to get 43% vote share in the 2014 general election as 5,92,569 electors voted in favour of him. It may be mentioned here that in the last general election there were 15,52,554 voters in the constituency out of whom 13,69,624 voters turned out at the polling booths.

However, before filing the nomination paper in the Deputy Commissioner�s office on Thursday, hundreds of supporters of AIUDF gathered in the Raja Prabhat Chandra Baruah playground, where Ajmal asked the AIUDF workers to work towards making him the highest voted candidate in the country by increasing the vote share this year.

Talking to mediapersons, the AIUDF supremo discarded the alleged unholy nexus between the AIUDF and Congress party and said that if needed, he is in favour of making the country free from BJP.

�BJP has taken the country down with all their wrong decisions,� said the AIUDF chief, who also added, �since BJP is adamant in passing the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill-2016, the people of Assam will not chose the party.�

Meanwhile, in a meeting organised at the Children�s Park auditorium on Friday, former MLA of South Salmara and senior AGP leader Jabed Islam was declared the candidate for the alliance.

The meeting was attended by BJP State president Ranjeet Dass, president of AGP Atul Bora, former MLA of BPF from Gauripur Bolen Musahari, State Irrigation Minister Bhabesh Kalita and many other State and district-level leaders of the three parties.

Interestingly, Dass urged the Congress workers to support the AGP candidate. �As there has been an unholy understanding between Congress and the AIUDF to save Tarun Gogoi�s son, I urge upon real Congress workers to work in favour of the alliance and drive away communal parties like the AIUDF.�

It may be mentioned here that in the panchayat election held recently, neither AIUDF nor the parties from the alliance performed well in the district and 19 seats out of 24 ZPC seats went to the Congress party. But till the filing of this report, the Congress party is yet to finalise its candidate for the Lok Sabha constituency.

However, names of 18,44,040 voters spread over 10 Assembley constituencies have been finalised for polling in 4-Dhubri Lok Sabha seat, out of which 21 Mankachar LAC has 2,10,592 voters, 22 South Salmara LAC has 1,78,659 voters, 23 Dhubri LAC has 1,87,578 voters, 24 Gauripur LAC has 1,94,862 voters, 25 Golakganj LAC has 1,90,416 voters, 26 Bilasipara West LAC has 1,63,812 voters, 27 Bilasipara East LAC has 2,06,434 voters, 37 Goalpara East LAC has 2,02,770 voters, 38 Goalpara West LAC has 1,60,325 voters and 39 Jaleswar LAC has 1,48,592 voters respectively.
