Firhad Hakim said, “I have been the councilor of this ward for 25 years. My politics started from this area. The people here never let me down. No one is fighting with me here, I am fighting with myself to increase the margin every year. ”
Besides, she made it clear on the day, “Mamata Banerjee has given opportunities to new candidates keeping in mind the future. We will not live all our lives. We will pass on the experience we have gathered to the next generation. Even if we don’t, our ideal will last a lifetime. That’s the decent thing to do, and it should end there. “
Incidentally, the total number of councilors who did not get grassroots tickets is 36. The reason for not getting tickets of these councilors has also been clarified in the campaign by Firhad Hakim, the former mayor and the mayor of the outgoing Purbord and the candidate for the Purvot. Already dropped out of the candidate list, two outgoing councilors are voting for the Congress symbol. Asked about this, Firhad said, “The less said about the Congress now, the better. The party did not field candidates who lost public support in the polls. In fact, they have no contact with people. “People who are angry or who behave arrogantly are left out.”
Firhad Hakim added, “Congress is now fielding candidates from the grassroots who did not get tickets. If that is the case, then it is clear how the Congress wants to survive. So those who are going to Congress are lame players. They want to take the field with the player thrown in our sideline. “
