The bypolls are crucial for Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who lost the assembly election in Nandigram to BJP’s Shubhendu Adhikari. It is very important for him to win the by-election within six months to continue as the chief minister. Mamata needs to be elected to the assembly by November 4.

When asked about the bypolls, the Chief Minister said, “The Election Commission asked us about the election of two Rajya Sabha seats, but they did not ask anything about the assembly seats. We have informed that both of us are adequately prepared to hold elections.

The Dinhata and Shantipur assembly seats fell vacant after BJP leaders Nisith Pramanik and Jagannath Sarkar MLAs resigned and were elected to retain membership of Parliament. Mamata Banerjee’s Bhawanipur seat has also fallen vacant as state minister Shobhan Dev Chattopadhyay has resigned to elect her from the seat.

The by-elections to Khardah and Gosaba seats of North and South 24 Parganas, respectively, are to be held after the deaths of Kajal Sinha and Jayant Naskar of Trinamool due to Kovid. (IANS Hindi)
