The election has to be postponed as the candidates of the united front of these two centers have died in Corona. On Monday, the commission said in two separate statements that the elections will be held on May 13 in those two centers. The counting of votes will take place on May 18. With the announcement of West Bengal Assembly Election 2021, some locals have expressed their anger against the commission. Because, coincidentally, May 13 is Eid again. Many people from the minority community are reluctant to go to the polls on these days. Some are already threatening to boycott the polls on social media. Elections were to be held in Samsherganj constituency on April 28, the seventh phase. But on April 15, Congress candidate Rezaul Haque passed away in Corona. The election of Samsherganj center has to be canceled in accordance with the rules on the death of the Congress candidate. According to the district administration, the polling day will be announced after the rules are followed. 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 Front of the Center and secretary of the RSP local committee, died on April 17. As usual, the voting has to be postponed in that center also.
