The electoral fervor has gripped Faridpur-3 (Sadar) constituency as candidates and their supporters tirelessly engage with voters to secure their ballots from dawn to dusk.
The primary contenders for this seat include Awami League candidate and District Awami League President Shamim Hossain (Boat) and the district Awami League advisor and former president of FBCCI AK Azad (Eagle).
Independent candidate Azad has actively reached out to the commercial hub of Sadar Upazila known as Kanaipur, initiating his election campaign in various areas, including Kanaipur Bazar, on Friday.
During his interactions with the public, Azad expressed his joy at the warm reception and declared promises for development. He pledged to establish a training center in each union if victorious, aiming to provide employment opportunities after completion of training.
Azad assured the electorate, saying, “If elected, I will eradicate terrorism from Faridpur. There will be no extortion, and no businessmen will have to pay any illegal fees. I am a businessman, and representing you is my moral duty. Protecting you is my responsibility. I will address and solve every problem you have.”
On the other hand, Awami League candidate Shamim Hossain has been actively campaigning since morning, connecting with party workers and voters by boat in the Dholadi Rajapur, Omediya, and Ambikapur areas of Sadar Upazila.
Shamim emphasized the continuous development of the area if voters choose the boat symbol. He envisioned the expansion of youth employment opportunities through the growth of business and commerce in the region.
He stated, “The government, under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina, has undertaken various initiatives for the betterment of the lives of the people. If she comes to power again, this country will reach new heights of development. Therefore, for a bright future for your children, cast your vote for the boat symbol.”
As the election battle intensifies, both candidates are vying for the trust and support of the people of Faridpur Sadar constituency.
