In battle for Bengal, Nandigram emerges as epicentre for TMC-BJP faceoff

Banerjee, who alleged on Monday that Adhikari’s men were planning to create communal disturbance in Nandigram, focussed her attack on the central forces on Tuesday, alleging that policemen from BJP-ruled states were “terrorizing” voters and “distributing money from the PM Cares Fund”.

As campaigning for the second phase of the assembly elections in West Bengal came to an end on Tuesday afternoon, East Midnapore district’s Nandigram – where chief minister Mamata Banerjee is contesting against her protégé-turned-rival Suvendu Adhikari – surpassed the 29 other constituencies that go to the polls on April 1 to emerge as the epicentre of the toughest battle the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are fighting in the eastern state.

“If Mamata Didi is defeated by a mammoth margin in Nandigram, the Bengal polls are won. That is the easiest way to bring parivartan (change) in Bengal,” said Union minister Amit Shah after leading a colourful roadshow. More than 130 km away, his wife and daughter-in-law offered prayers at Bengal’s two most auspicious Kali temples; Kalighat, located close to the chief minister’s south Kolkata residence and Dakshineswar in the capital city’s northern outskirts.
