Poll campaign gains momentum at Gauripur

By Correspondent

GAURIPUR, March 29 - Poll campaign in the 24 � Gauripur LAC has been gaining momentum after opening of temporary campaign offices by the contesting candidates at different areas of the constituency. However, storm and rain during the last two days has hampered the spirit of the campaigners.

This time there might be a three-cornered contest among BPF, Congress and AIUDF. There are also a few Independent candidates in the fray and they seemed to be of no factor for the BPF, Congress and AIUDF candidates. Banendra Kumar Mushahary, a candidate of the BJP-AGP-BPF pre-poll alliance, has intensified his campaign to win the hearts of the voters and already opened campaign offices in all the areas of the constituency. The Congress and the AIUDF candidates are also not lagging behind. Badaruddin Ajmal, AIUDF supremo has addressed a number of rallies in the religious minority-dominated areas of the constituency for his party candidate Nizanur Rahman. Congress has fielded Sushil Kumar Ray, ex-district president of the party as their candidate but no star campaigner has addressed any rally for him as yet.

This time, Banendra Kumar Mushahary of the BPF, who was three-time MLA of the constituency will face a tough fight from the AIUDF candidate. Out of 1,78,985 voters, 55% are religious minority voters and rest 45% are majority but they seemed to be divided into groups. In 2011 election, Banendra Kumar Mushahary won the seat by securing 53,846 votes while Nizanur Rahman got 37,189 and stood second. Congress candidate Mahibul Haque secured 28,444 votes and his position was third. As the constituency is not situated in the BTAD area, it seems difficult for the BPF candidate to come out successful.
