Then his wife Rokeya Khatun was chosen as the candidate. But he too did not agree to stand for election in the end and this time the Congress announced the name of the new candidate. Jaidur Rahman, brother of Jangipur Lok Sabha Trinamool Congress MP Khalilur Rahman, has been fielded as a candidate in Samsherganj. His name was announced by the Congress on Saturday. Earlier, on April 15, Rezaul Haque, a declared candidate of the Congress, died of corona. The Congress then announced Rokeya Khatun, wife of the late Rezaul Haque, as its candidate. The husband died on April 15 after being infected with corona. Mother-in-law Mao Corona was admitted to the hospital. In this situation, Rokeya Khatun did not agree to stand for election as a Congress candidate. As a result, new complications arose with the candidate in the Samsherganj Congress. Meanwhile, the last date for submission of nominations is April 25. In this situation, the Congress finally chose Jaidur Rahman, the brother of Jangipur Lok Sabha Trinamool Congress MP Khalilur Rahman, as its hasty candidate. Incidentally, this Samsherganj constituency was not the only united front alliance. The Congress formed a coalition with the CPI (M) candidate Modassar Hossain. The new Congress candidate is Zaidur Rahman

Samsherganj assembly election on May 18. However, the election was supposed to be held on April 26, i.e. in the seventh phase in Samsherganj constituency. But after the death of Rezaul Haque, the election of Samsherganj center had to be canceled according to the rules. On the other hand, the Jangipur center was also scheduled to go to polls on April 28. Don’t put your hand in this center either. Pradeep Nandir, a candidate of the United Morcha and secretary of the RSP local committee, died on April 18. As usual, the voting has to be postponed in that center also. After that, the polling day was announced on May 13 in those two centers. Which is probably their day. This caused dissatisfaction in the area. Some locals became vocal in demanding a change in the by-election day. Many also demanded a boycott of the vote on social media. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee herself expressed dissatisfaction with the new day of voting. A letter was sent to the commission on behalf of the Congress demanding cancellation of the vote. Letters are also given on behalf of AIMIM. The commission decided to postpone the polls in those two centers for three days due to the objections of different parties. However, no changes were made on the day of the counting.
