West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday announced she will contest the upcoming Assembly election from Nandigram, the home turf of political heavyweight Suvendu Adhikari, who recently switched over to the BJP from the TMC.
Addressing a rally in Nandigram, Banerjee said “I have always started my campaign for the assembly polls from Nandigram. It is a lucky place for me. So this time I feel that I should contest the assembly polls from here. I request our state party president Subrata Bakshi to approve my name from this seat.
