Days after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced that she would contest the upcoming state assembly election from Nandigram, now her former aide turned BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari has hit back.
While Adhikari refused to confirm his candidature from Nandigram, he said that he would guarantee the victory of the candidate the BJP fields in Nandigram.
‘Mamata Banerjee has announced to contest from there, relying on 62,000 votes but I have 2.13 lakh people who chant 'Jai Shri Ram,’ Adhikari said.
BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari said he was confident of defeating West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC supremo in Nandigram. The BJP named Adhikari, a former minister in Banerjee's cabinet, as its candidate in the Nandigram seat in Purba Medinipur district, from where the chief minister will also contest the assembly elections. Adhikari said, “I have been given responsibilities and I will perform them dutifully. I will work to ensure BJP’s lotus blooms in Nandigram and across West Bengal.” He added, “Mamata Banerjee will lose in Nandigram by over 50,000 votes.” Adhikari had quit the TMC and resigned from the MLA post last year to join the BJP after having differences with the ruling party in the state.
