West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee filed her nomination from Bhawanipur seat on Friday. The by-election to this seat is to be held on September 30. Here BJP has pitted Priyanka Tibrewal against him.
Mamta Banerjee lost the Nandigram assembly seat to BJP’s Shubhendu Adhikari in the recently held assembly elections. After this, her trusted Sobandev Chattopadhyay had resigned from Bhawanipur seat so that Mamata Banerjee could contest from here. This election is very important for Mamta Banerjee because it is necessary to be a member of the Legislative Assembly to remain the CM.
BJP’s Priyanka Tibrewal, standing in front of him, has been a legal advisor to BJP leader Babul Supriyo. She had joined BJP in August 2014. In 2015, she contested the Kolkata Municipal Council election from Ward No. 58 (Entlee) as a BJP candidate, but was defeated by Swapan Samdar of TMC.
BJP has appointed its West Bengal Vice President and MP Arjun Singh as in-charge of Bhawanipur by-election. He will be assisted by MPs Saumitra Khan and Jyotirmoy Singh Mahto. Eight BJP MLAs have been made in-charge of the eight wards.
