Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday said that she has won the Bhawanipur Assembly by-election. He said, “I have won the Bhawanipur Assembly by-election by a huge margin of 58, 832 votes and have won in all the wards of the assembly.” West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata further said, “About 46% people here (in Bhawanipur) are non-Bengali. All of them have voted for me. The people of West Bengal are looking at Bhawanipur, which has inspired me.”
Talking to the media after the massive victory in the by-elections, Mamta accused the Center of conspiring to remove her from power. He said, “Ever since elections started in Bengal, the central government conspired to remove us (from power). My leg hurt because I can’t contest elections. I am grateful to the people for voting for us and the Election Commission for holding elections within 6 months.
Talking to the media in Kolkata, Mamta Banerjee said that the people of Bhawanipur have given a befitting reply to the conspiracy hatched in Nandigram. It is worth noting that in the Bengal assembly elections held a few months ago, Mamata Banerjee had to face defeat against BJP’s candidate Shubhendu Adhikari from the Nandigram seat.
After Banerjee’s loss from the Nandigram seat in the assembly elections, state minister Sovandeb Chattopadhyay had vacated the Bhawanipur seat so that Banerjee could return to the assembly after winning from this seat. TMC had won this seat by a margin of around 28,000 votes in the April-May assembly elections.
