Left Front Announces Candidate List With Fresh Faces, Veterans

Kolkata: Two JNU students from West Bengal — Aishe Ghosh and Dipsita Dhar — have made it to the Left Front’s candidate list that has a blend of fresh blood, veterans and a representation from the minority community.

JNUSU president Aishe is contesting from Paschim Burdwan’s Jamuria and Dipsita from Howrah’s Bally. CPM state secretary Surjya Kanta Mishra (74) is no longer in the fray.

Party politburo member Mohammad Salim is the CPM candidate from Hooghly’s Chanditala. Party leaders Sujan Chakraborty and Ashok Bhattacharya are contesting from their home turfs Jadavpur and Siliguri.

The Left’s candidate list, which was released by Left Front chairman Biman Bose, has packed in fresh faces to take on the BJP-Trinamool challenge. DYFI leader Minakshi Mukherjee is the CPM candidate from the high-voltage Nandigram seat, SFI leaders Srijan Bhattacharya from Singur and Pritha Ta from Burdwan Dakshin.

Pratip Dasgupta is CPM candidate from Kashipur-Belgachhia, Saptarshi Deb from Rajarhat.

Tollywood actor Debdut Ghosh is Left’s nominee from the glitterati. He is contesting from Tollygunge.

CPM women’s front leader Monalisa Sinha is the Left nominee from Sonarpur Uttar and Subhojit Dasgupta from Bidhannagar. Jadavpur University mathematics professor Priti Kumar Roy is CPM candidate from Bongaon Dakshin.

The Left Front has a fair representation from minorities as well. Fuad Halim is CPM candidate from Ballygunge. He is among the 13 Left candidates from the minorities. The tally is likely to go up for Sanyukta Morcha (Left-Congress-ISF) once the Congress and ISF come out with their candidate lists.
