Mumbai: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Monday announced that she would contest from Nandigram seat in the upcoming state Assembly elections.
Addressing a rally here, she said, “I will contest from Nandigram Assembly. If possible I will contest from both Bhawanipur and Nandigram.”

Mamta defeated the ruling Left with a landslide victory in the 2011 assembly elections.
“Slap me if I make a mistake but don’t walk away from me. Who will do so much work for you? If someone calls me bad, I won’t let them,” she said.
BJP has been aggressively campaigning in West Bengal over the past few months with top leaders Amit Shah, JP Nadda visiting the state. Elections to 294 seats in West Bengal are slated to take place later in 2021
