Candidates for the post of chairman of Gupahar Union under Dupchanchia upazila are busy time campaigning for the upcoming Union Parishad elections in Bogura. The election campaign is already in full swing in every village and neighborhood. The speculation has started. Who will be the guardian of Gunahar Union?
At the field level, the candidates for the posts of chairman, vice chairman and members are marching from one end of the union to the other. Candidates have gone door-to-door with voters promising various developments.
Speaking to ordinary voters in Gunahar Union of Dupchanchia in the district last Saturday, it was learned that the residents of the union want to see a new face this time. However, the candidate must be honest, competent and compassionate. At the same time highly educated and self employed in public welfare work.
According to the Returning Officer’s Office, Shah Mohammad Abdul Khaleq, the current chairman nominated by Bangladesh Awami League, Independent candidate Emdadul Haque, general secretary of Press Club, Nur Mohammad Abu Taher, Jalal Uddin Pramanik and Helal Pramanik have submitted nomination papers for the post of chairman of the upcoming Gunahar Union.
