Nawda Congress candidate Sunil Mondal recently retired from teaching. He is the President of Nawda Block Congress. He is known as an active Congress worker for several decades. On the other hand Kandi Vidhan Sabha candidate Shafiul Alam Khan is the president of the sub-divisional Congress. He is associated with cultural programs in the area. Besides, he is a good footballer.
It is to be noted that Nawda legislator Abu Taher Khan left the Congress and joined the ruling party in the state. As a reward, Trinamool Congress nominated him for the Murshidabad Lok Sabha constituency. However, Abu Taher Khan resigned from the post of office before becoming the candidate. The seat was vacant due to the resignation of the legislator.
The same incident is happened in Kandi. Apurba Sarkar, the legislator of this constituency, left the Congress. Later joined the Trinamool Congress. He became the Trinamul Congress candidate of the Baharampore Lok Sabha constituency. The by-election of the Kandi assembly constituency will be held on May 20.
