From our Staff Reporter

SILCHAR, July 11: Keeping aside all ego clashes among top leaders, the Silchar Congress today put up a united face prior to the Municipality election to be held on July 31.

Congress leaders like Sontosh Mohan Dev, former Union Minister Dinesh Prasad Goala, State Urban Development Minister and Silchar MLA Bithika Dev, who were not in their best of relations, along with other district level leaders today jointly addressed a press meet to announce the names of candidates for 28 wards. Addressing the mediapersons, Dev, whose daughter Susmita is a party candidate in Ward No. 27, claimed that according to APCC guidelines the party was not projecting anyone for the post of chairperson.

Dev confidently said, the Congress would be able to win adequate seats to form the Board, though he declined to mention how many seats he personally thought the party would be able to win.

Goala, on the other hand said, the last Board led by Bithika Dev had done a commendable job and the rumour about scams were all baseless and planted by the opposition.

Goala refuted the reports of ego clashes between Dev and him. Bithika said, she as the chairperson, tried her best to provide quality civic services to the people of Silchar. District president Karnendu Bhattacharjee said, inspite of various problems, the last Board, led by the Congress has done a very good job.
