Kolkata: Dev or Deepak Adhikari, is the only celebrity actor to jump into the poll fray who is still working in the movies.Dev’s job was made easy when Gurudas Dasgupta, the CPI heavyweight and sitting MP, decided not to contest like several of his colleagues in the Left Front.
To make Dev’s job easy CPI has fielded Santosh Rana, who had lost the Midnapore assembly seat in 2011. His only challenge now is to use his star charisma to wrest Ghatal. And he won by huge margin.
In 2019, Actor Dipak Adhikari again nominated as TMC candidate in Ghatal Loksabha Constituency. On Friday, left front announced candidates list in 25 seats of West Bengal. Now Tapan Ganguly from CPIM will fight against Dev.
After that Dev Congradulated Tapan Ganguly on twitter as his opponent candidate and said” Congratulations to CPI (M) candidate Mr. Tapan Ganguly from Ghatal. Let’s all work towards the progress of a better and developed Ghatal, no matter who will win the race. Our disagreement is not in the hindrance of development.”
ঘাটালে সিপিআইএম প্রার্থী শ্রী তপন গাঙ্গুলি কে অভিনন্দন। আমরা যেই জিতি বা হারি সবাই একসঙ্গে ঘাটাল এর মানুষজনের সুখ দুঃখের সঙ্গে থাকবো। ঘাটালের উন্নয়নে একসঙ্গে কাজ করবো। আমাদের মতবিরোধ যেন উন্নয়নের অন্তরায় না হয়। ??

Dev also said that The people of Ghatal know how concerned I have been about their welfare. Even a day before my sister’s wedding, I had rushed to Ghatal when I came to know that the people of my constituency needed my presence. If I win, I will want to continue serving the people of Ghatal. Even if I don’t, I will continue to do my bit for the people there.
