ITANAGAR, March 26 - An aspiring Congress candidate today alleged that her name figured in the AICC approved list of nominees for the Assembly election in Arunachal Pradesh, but she failed to submit nomination as the State leadership did not provide her required documents.
Marina Kenlang claimed that State party president Takam Sanjoy refused to provide her two papers � Form A and Form B � which a candidate need to prove that he or she is indeed nominated by a political party.
As a result, she could not file her nomination for Changlang North Assembly constituency on Monday, the last date of submitting papers, Kenlang said.
Sanjoy, however, said Kenlang�s name was there in the initial list released by the AICC on Saturday, but it was later changed and Tingkhap Taiju replaced her in the �final list�. Taiju filed his papers for the constituency on Monday.
A senior party leader on condition of anonymity said her name was replaced following receipt of reports from block and Changlang district committees, which said her support base is not much strong.
�She was not in a position to fight sitting MLA Tesam Pongte of the BJP. However, the other candidate who had filed his nomination will give a tough fight to the BJP nominee,� the leader added. � PTI
