Will Contest From Nandigram : Mamata Banerjee
Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has announced that she will contest from Nandigram in the state election due by May. The announcement is significant as Nandigram was represented by rebel Suvendu Adhikari, who crossed over to the BJP last month.
"I will contest from Nandigram. Nandigram is my lucky place," Mamata Banerjee said, addressing a public meeting in the town.
Mamata Banerjee's campaign for farmers' land in Nandigram propelled her to power in the 2012 assembly election in which she won by a landslide.
