Mamata to contest from Bhawanipore

Mamata to contest from Bhawanipore

Banerjee had earlier resigned from the post of Union railway minister in the wake of assuming the helm in the state, after the TMC-Congress’ ‘historic’ victory in the May assembly polls. Bhawanipore, under the Calcutta South Lok Sabha seat, from where Banerjee was elected in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls, has returned TMC leader and PWD Minister Subrata Bakshi, in the Assembly elections.

As per the existing norms, Banerjee will have to get elected as an MLA within six mo­nths of taking oath as the chief minister.
