Contestants start campaign in Jalukbari LAC

By Correspondent

NORTH GUWAHATI, March 21 � Although Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma is known to have nourished the prestigious Jalukbari constituency in the past ten years, he is not entirely free from the hazards that might be posed by the candidates filing their nomination from this LAC.

The two main Opposition parties, AGP and BJP, have fielded two energetic youths, namely Manoj Saikia and Prodyut Bora respectively, although their respective party booths are yet to be opened.

On the other hand, although Dr Sarma is scheduled to file his nomination on March 23, his party�s booths have mushroomed in between small distances of the wards or panchayat of North Guwahati.

On March 19, Promod Saikia, a social activist, reputed artiste and one-time news reader of AIR who was victimised for taking part in the historic Assam agitation, representing the newly formed �Jagrat Gana Mancha� filed his nomination papers in the Kamrup (Metro) district administration office.

Candidates from other parties, including AUDF, are yet to be made ready for an electoral fight with the existing Congress MLA who claims that he has caused a flood of development in various forms in the LAC.

However, despite implementation of some development schemes in the constituency, the conscious section of voters allege that the communication problems in between the city and North Guwahati areas are still being left unsolved. The problems of alarming pollution due to growth of industries like coke and cement plants, were allegedly not taken up by the Minister, it is alleged.

However, the contestants have not formally approached the voters and the battle of the hustings would be visible clearly to the voters only after March 24, the last date of filing nomination papers.
