Kolkata: The first phase of polling is over in West Bengal Election 2021. The political heat is at its peak in West Bengal.
Despite this, the problems within the Sanjukta Morcha comprising the Congress, the Left Front and the Indian Secular Front (ISF) continue.
This time in the Deganga assembly seat, there is a fight between the two parties of the Sanjukta Morcha. Although the ISF has been alotted the seat by the Left Front, the Forward Bloc has declined to play ball. So this time a four-way fight will be seen in the Deganga assembly.
Forward Bloc candidate Hasanuzzaman Chowdhury submitted his nomination in Barasat on Monday. Their request to Abbas Siddiqui is that he should withdraw the ISF candidate, which has created new complications.
Incidentally, the Forward Bloc has been fighting for the seat on behalf of the Left Front since 1962. So the Forward Bloc leadership did not agree to leave the seat. The left party also said that Hasanuzzaman Chowdhury is going to fight as Degangar’s candidate after getting permission from the state leadership. Hasanuzzaman appeared on the field with the aim of defeating the main opposition Trinamool candidate Rahima Mandal. He thinks that Abbas Siddiqui will understand the issue and leave this seat to the left. Hasanuzzaman is also optimistic about winning.
The Sanjukta Morcha is worried about its success in the Deganga assembly constituency due to the complexity of the four-way fight. It is to be noted that there are 2 lakh 41 thousand voters in this center, most of whom are minorities. The Peerzada-led ISF claims to have of 35,000 active ISF supporters in the constituency.
Trinamool Congress (TMC) candidate Rahima Mandal is hopeful that the winning margin will be widened. Meanwhile, the BJP is also hoping to win the seat.
