Trinamool Producing Fake Nominees Says Opposition


Baharampur: The Congress and the CPM have accused Trinamool of submitting fake nominations on Monday in Murshidabad’s Samserganj to disprove Opposition claims that its workers were prevented from filing their papers.

Scores of such nominations were filed, some as Congress and CPM candidates and others as independents, leaders said.

But Congress and CPM leaders said they could not file any nominations because of the violence that saw bombs being hurled at the car of Congress MP Abu Hasem Khan Chowdhury.

The Congress leaders alleged that the names in the nominations submitted were similar to those of well-known Trinamool leaders of the area.
