All eyes are now riveted on Sherpur-3 (Sreebardi-Jhenaigati) seat as two members of the same family have been contesting with tickets of the two major alliances.

They have submitted nomination papers to the local assistant returning officer on Wednesday after getting the party nomination.

As there is no other strong candidate in this constituency, the main contest will be between uncle and nephew. Local voters are also eager to see the uncle-nephew fight.

Earlier, uncle Fazlul Haq Chan elected twice MP under the banner of boat, nephew Rubel was elected MP three times. Rubel was elected MP as an independent candidate in 1994, in 1996 and 2001 he also elected MP as a BNP candidate.
