Suvendu Adhikari, who recently switched to BJP from Banerjee’s party, won the seat as the TMC candidate in 2016. Traditionally, Banerjee has always contested from Bhawanipur.

“I will come again and again as Nandigram is my lucky place. In the 2016 election, I announced my election from Nandigram. Today also I came to Nandigram. TMC will win in 2021.

Mamata had swept into power defeated the ruling Left with a landslide victory in the 2011 Assembly election.

“If I make mistake slap me but don’t go away from me. Who will do that much work for you? If anyone calls me bad, I won’t let them,” she said.

BJP has been aggressively campaigning in over the past few months with top leaders Amit Shah, JP Nadda visiting the state.

Elections to 294 seats in are slated to take place later in 2021.
