Mamata Banerjee files nomination from Nandigram

Kolkata: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday filed her nomination as a Trinamool Congress candidate from East Midnapore’s Nandigram assembly constituency.

Trinamool supremo had been contesting polls from her home seat Bhawanipore constituency so far

Banerjee took part in a 2-km-long roadshow at Haldia and finally filed her nomination at the Haldia sub-divisional office. She was accompanied by party state president Subrata Bakshi.

The Trinamool supremo had been contesting polls from her home seat Bhawanipore constituency so far.

Nandigram is a stronghold of newly-inducted BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari who had been elected from the high-profile seat in 2016 and became a minister in Mamata Banerjee-led state cabinet.

Adhikari had joined the saffron brigade in December last year. The rebel Trinamool leader had claimed earlier that he would defeat Banerjee by more than 50,000 votes in Nandigram.

Emerging form the Haldia sub-divisional office after filing her nomination papers, Mamata Banerjee’s first stop was at a temple to offer prayer. “This gesture of Mamta Banerjee is a clear sign of her being shaky and on a sticky wicket,” feel analysts.
