Sushmita submits nomination

Silchar, March 24: Congress nominee from Silchar and sitting MLA Sushmita Dev filed her nomination at the Cachar deputy commissioner’s office here this morning.

Youth Congress members and local Congress workers took out a rally from the Silchar Congress office around 10.30am.

Before filing the nomination Sushmita, daughter of former Union minister Santosh Mohan Dev, said, “After seeing the overwhelming response of the people and the enthusiasm of my fellow party members, I have become more confident. Parties with communal ideologies are playing dirty games to win. I request all the party workers and people of Silchar to prepare for a battle against communal forces. I am also thankful to my party for reposing faith in me,” she added.

“We do politics for development and not for any other reason and it is quite evident that the people of Cachar want me as their leader.”
