On last day of campaigning, Banerjee leads ‘Padyatra’ in Nandigram

The padyatra is being held on the last day of campaigning for phase 2 of the Assembly polls on April 1.

West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee held a padyatra (footmarch) on Tuesday in Bhagabeda in Nandigram from where she is contesting the assembly elections. In a video shared by news agency ANI, Banerjee can be seen wheelchair-bound with her supporters as she leads the padyatra.

Banerjee has been wheelchair-bound after she was injured in an alleged attack on March 10. The chief minister was admitted to a hospital in Kolkata after the attack and discharged on March 12.

The padyatra is being held on the last day of campaigning for phase 2 of the assembly polls on April 1.

The Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief also held a footmarch on Monday from Khudiram More to Thakur Chawk in Nandigram. Nandigram assembly constituency goes to polls in the second phase of the West Bengal assembly elections on April 1. Banerjee faces Suvendu Adhikari – who left the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) – in Nandigram which is being called a battle of prestige for both the contestants. Nandigram is important to Banerjee as it is the birthplace of the anti-land acquisition movement which propelled her to power in 2011.
