Hoardings displayed near the place where West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is staying in Nandigram read, “Nandigram, Midnapore wants its own son not an outsider.”
Banerjee said, “People are calling me an outsider in Nandigram. I was born and brought up in the neighbouring district. Today I have become an outsider and people from Gujarat have become insiders?”
Bharatiya Janata Party leader Suvendu Adhikari who is contesting against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that Bengal will turn into Kashmir if Trinamool Congress (TMC) comes into power again.
“I will work to make lotus bloom in Nandigram and across West Bengal. Mamata Banerjee is going to lose this election in Nandigram by over 50,000 votes,” added Adhikari.
West Bengal Assembly elections will be held in eight phases starting from March 27 with the final round of voting taking place on April 29. The counting of votes in the state will take place on May 2.
