BJP’s Priyanka Tibrewal and Communist Marxist Party’s (CPM) Shreejib Biswas are the candidates against Banerjee this time in Bhawanipur seat. Tibrewal contested the assembly elections from Entali and lost. Vishwas is new to politics right now. For Mamata Banerjee, this opportunity is not only to avenge her defeat in Nandigram but also to her greater ambition to play an important role in shaping the future of the opposition in national politics.
After initial hesitation, the Congress decided not to field a candidate against Mamata Banerjee and to stay away from campaigning. Mamata Banerjee had won from Bhawanipur seat twice in the 2011 and 2016 assembly elections but in this year’s assembly elections she decided to contest from Nandigram seat.
According to constitutional provisions, Banerjee is required to win a seat in the state assembly by November 5 to continue as chief minister. The constitution allows a non-member of a state legislature or parliament to remain in office without being elected for only six months. After Mamata Banerjee’s defeat in Nandigram, state cabinet minister and Trinamool Congress MLA from Bhawanipur Sovandev Chattopadhyay vacated his seat so that the chief minister could contest from this seat.
