Candidates say: Election has no effect on family relationship
CPM candidate Reena Das said, ‘We have become candidates of two parties on the same seat. Aunty Maa is standing for BJP in Panchayat Samiti. We all are campaigning as per the instructions of our party. But we have good relations with everyone in our family. Trinamool candidate Swapna Das said, we have enough love for the family members. But we are each other’s rivals in the fight for votes. I am propagating Mamta Banerjee’s development in front of the people. People will decide who wins. In the words of BJP candidate Archana Das, my husband came to BJP inspired by the development of Modi ji. Then the party made me its candidate. If I win, I want to work for the development of the area. But this fight for votes will not affect our family relationship. There is good co-ordination and courtesy among the daughters-in-law. It is noteworthy that the Das family of Gusumba village was once the vote bank of the Left. And this family had a lot of dominance in this village. The ‘vote bank’ of that family is now going to be divided into three parts. Now further it has to be seen that to whom the public Janardan makes him win by giving his vote.
