Jinnah isn’t a name the BJP is comfortable with. Some party leaders have at times used it for their bogeyman AIUDF leader Badruddin Ajmal. But the BJP is banking on a namesake, the 62-year-old retired government employee Kadiruzzaman Zinnah (the spelling in Assamese is same as that of Jinnah), to win the Laharighat Assembly seat where more than 91% voters are Muslims.
Mr. Zinnahtoo hopes the ‘development for all’ credo will help him wrest the bastion of the Congress, which has opted for 32-year-old Asif Mohammad Nazar, son of incumbent Nazrul Islam.
