Priyanka Tibrewal has started her campaign from Sunday. Earlier on Saturday, Priyanka went to the Kalighat temple in Kolkata and offered prayers. After offering prayers at Kalighat temple, Priyanka took a jibe at Mamata Banerjee over the post-poll violence. Priyanka said that she prayed to Goddess Kali for the protection of the people against the injustice being done in the state. Priyanka said that her fight is against the party in power which has encouraged injustice and violence against the people. Let us tell you, Kalighat is the home of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and this area comes under Bhawanipur assembly constituency.
Tibrewal filed nomination
Mamta Banerjee has already filed her nomination for the Bhawanipur high profile seat two days ago. BJP candidate Priyanka Tibrewal also filed her nomination on Monday. Tibrewal filed his nomination in Alipore, Kolkata. During this, BJP leader and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Suvendu Adhikari were also present. Mamata Banerjee had filed her nomination in Kolkata itself.
Let us tell you, in the assembly elections held in March-April, Mamata Banerjee had contested from Nandigram seat, but she was defeated by Suvendu Adhikari of BJP. To remain the CM of Bengal, Mamata needs to win the assembly elections before November. By-polls will be held on September 30 for three assembly seats in the state. Counting of votes will take place on October 3. The Election Commission has imposed restrictions on pre- and post-nomination processions for the by-elections.
