Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Abhishek Banerjee said that the people of Nandigram will cast their votes to “Bengal’s daughter” Mamata Banerjee on April 1 and make the Bharatiya Janata Party “April fool”, on Tuesday via Twitter.
“Mamata Banerjee’s huge workers’ meeting today at one of the strongholds of the movement, Nandigram, sent the message of peace and development. The people of Nandigram will vote for Bengal’s daughter on April 1 and make the BJP April Fool,” Banerjee tweeted in Bengali.
He also quoted TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee when he tweeted, “I can forget my name, but I cannot forget Nandigram.”
Mamata Banerjee has stepped away from her traditional Bhowanipore seat to contest from Nandigram for the 2021 West Bengal Assembly Elections. While the BJP has said that she was losing confidence in retaining her Bhowanipore said, Banerjee said that it was her plan to contest from either Singur or Nandigram.
She would be contesting against former aide and political heavyweight Suvendu Adhikari, who recently joined the BJP from TMC ahead of the polls. Adhikari had said in January that he would beat Banerjee or quit politics.
Adhikari had also mocked the chief minister for leaving her traditional seat in Bhowanipore.
