Indian State West Bengal’s CM Ms Mamta Banerjee wins bi-polls election with landslide victory. She has defeated Bhartiya Janta Party’s Priyanka Tibrewal with record margin of 58,835 votes.
In Bhabanipur constituency at Kolkata, the Trinamool polled 61.9 per cent, the BJP party 22.3 per cent and the CPM party 3.6 per cent. Trinomul Congress’s General Secretary Mr Subrata Bakshi collects the winning certificate of West Bengal CM & Bhabanipur constituency by-poll candidate Mamata Banerjee.
The BJP party continues to wreak havoc in Bengal, loses all the three seats bi-polls. The people of West Bengal have totally denied to this party as it seems. After securing landslide victory in Bhabanipur, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched a scathing attack on the Centre saying that people of Bhabanipur have given a befitting reply to the conspiracy that was hatched in Nandigram.
“Around 46% of people here (in Bhabanipur) are non-Bengalis. They all have voted for me. People of West Bengal are watching Bhabanipur, which has inspired me,” said Mamata after her win over BJP’s Priyanka Tibrewal.
The numbers of voters at Bhabanipur are relatively less and about 1.15 lakh votes were polled this time. This time the party has won by a margin of 58,832 votes.
Notably, the TMC Supremo who lost from the Nandigram constituency in the assembly elections held earlier this year had to win this by-poll and become a member of the Assembly within six months to retain her CM post.
Besides, Bhabanipur, two Assembly seats in Murshidabad district – Samserganj and Jangipur also went to polls on September 30. The polls in these constituencies were countermanded during the April-May assembly elections following the death of two candidates—Rezaul Haque and Pradip Nandi. While Congress’ Rezaul Haque, died on April 15, the Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP) candidate from Jangipur, Pradip Nandi, passed away a day later.
In the last West Bengal’s Assembly Election 2021, the BJP had lost like anything and today’s by-election results pushed a little more down. Apart from the by-elections in Bhabanipur, another two constituencies Samsherganj and Jangipur have also returned the soldiers of BJP just empty handed.
Strengthening the organization in Bengal is far from over, the BJP is further breaking morale by setting record successive rates. In the Bhabanipur by-election, BJP candidate Priyanka Tibrewal lost to Mamata Banerjee by more than 58,835 votes.
Even Priyanka got defeated in the last Assembly election too. Significantly, her gap was 56 thousand. On the other hand, despite the BJP occupying the second position in Jangipur, the BJP has slipped to the third position in Samserganj. However, the situation of the leftists who were once sitting in the chair of the ruler is even worse. Candidates’ bail has been confiscated in all the three centers.
The more the BJP has jumped in to seize the land of Bengal, the more it has been pushed. The last assembly election was a perfect example of this. Even after the election of 6 MLAs, BJP could not hold on to it. At the moment the number of MLAs is 61. Six have already left the party and joined the Mamata Banerjee’s party. As a result, it goes without saying that BJP is gradually losing its land when it comes to hardening the land.
