After the Trinamool candidate for Malda south Moajjem Hossain left, trains of CPM supporters escorted their candidates to district administrative headquarter building around 12.30 pm. However, the supporters remained outside and the candidates entered the office only with five supporters each. Khan tendered his nomination to Malda DM and returning officer (RO) of Malda south Sharad Dwivedi while Murmu filed his nomination to Malda north RO Sanjib Chaki.
Khan said, “This election is different from the previous ones. Voters of Malda south are disgusted with non-functioning of the sitting MP AH Khan Choudhury. Even Mr Khan Choudhury himself cannot submit an account of developmental activities during his eight years tenure as an MP.”
“My task, if elected, would be to raise the issues concerning Malda south in the parliament and to strengthen the fight of the common people,” he added.

Murmu said, “This election is a battle between poor men’s party and the party of the land lords and rich people. Like every time poor people’s party would win in this case too.” Both Mr Murmu and Mr Khan said that their prime contender was Congress and not the Trinamool.
Meanwhile SUCI candidate Gautam Sarkar, Jharkhand Disom Party’s Imanuyel Hembram, and Mohammed Nurul Islam of WelfareParty of India have tendered nomination from Malda north PA. In Malda south three other candidates of Bahujan Samaj Party, Social Democratic Party of India and Party for Democratic Socialism filed nominations along with an independent candidate.
Congress candidates from Malda north and south Pas are to submit their nominations on Thursday.
