Independent candidate faces the election for the 36th time

Noor Mohammed came to the Taluk Office in Madukkarai with a vegetable garland, shovel and a clay stove to file nomination for contesting in the Kinathukadavu constituency.

Noor Mohammed (63) hails from Coimbatore’s Sundarapuram area. He has studied up to the fifth standard and is self-employed. Since 1996, he has contested in the elections for the Ward Councilor, MLA and MP 35 times and has received very few votes. He has also contested in the by-elections including Andipatti, Sathankulam, Thiruchendur, Madurai West, Pennagaram, RK Nagar and Thirumangalam.

Now for the 36th time, he came with a vegetable garland, a shovel, earthen stove, coriander and curry leaves to file his nomination to contest as an independent candidate for the Kinathukadavu constituency in Coimbatore district. When he reached the office of the Returning Officer, the police confiscated those things.

Following this, Noor Mohammed filed the nomination to Amsaveni, the Returning Officer at the Madukkarai Taluk Office. He said that this government did nothing when the farmers are protesting in Delhi. He added that he came with that peculiar appearance to condemn the price hike of gas cylinders.

He also said that even if he continues to lose in the forthcoming elections, he will still compete to bring change to the people. He noted that in every election, faceless people have been supporting him, even though he has no one to campaign for victory or defeat.
