MALDA, APR 3, 2014: Two Congress candidates from Malda north and south constituencies Mausam Noor and AH Khan Choudhury (Dalu) along with Malda north Trinamul Congress contender Soumitra Ray today filed nominations for ensuing parliamentary elections among hype and excitement of thousands of party supporters.

Union minister of state (MOS) Dalu reached district administrative headquarter around 10.30 am after offering prayer to famous Manaskamana temple and Pirana Pir. He was accompanied by his son and Congress MLA Isha Khan Choudhury and another MLA Arjun Haldar and district Congress general secretary Narendranath Tiwary. However, two other Congress MLAs Sabina Yeasmin and Dalu’s rebel brother AN Khan Choudhury (Lebu) were absent.

Dalu said, “There is no doubt that Congress would retain both Lok Sabha seats in Malda defeating the CPI-M.” Without referring to Trinamool in his statement Dalu intended to ignore Trinamul’s importance in the forthcoming election.

Like others he too offered prayer to Manaskamana temple and some Dargas. Roy said, “I am overwhelmed with the response of the people I am receiving. I am shocked to see that many people are still deprived. If elected, I want to work for them.”
