Workers Party leader Badsha submits nomination

Workers' Party (WP) politburo member Fazle Hossain Badsha yesterday submitted his nomination papers and said he is the candidate of Awami League-led electoral alliance at Rajshahi-2 (Rajshahi City Corporation areas).If nominated from the AL-led combine, Badsha is likely to face BNP's Mizanur Rahman Minu as his nearest rival in the election.“I am not only the candidate of Awami League-led combine, but also the torch-bearer of mass people and all pro-liberation organisations in the area,” he told newsmen after the submission of nomination paper yesterday noon.“If elected, I will take steps for reopening the closed down industries and factories. I will recommend for a budget giving priority to poor people,” he said.Meanwhile, local AL is keeping a noticeable distance with Badsha.They have alleged that he did not take part in the campaign in favour of AHM Khairuzzaman Liton during August 4 RCC polls.In 2002 RCC polls, Badsha was lost to Minu and Badsha's suit for vote rigging at 20 polling centres is still under trial.After the new delimitations, Rajshahi-2 constituency now covers only RCC areas.
