CPI (M) candidate Meenakshi Mukherjee on Friday filed her nomination papers for the Nandigram Assembly constituency in West Bengal. The petition was filed before the Haldia Sub-Divisional Officer. Accompanied by hundreds of activists, they came to file the petition. Meenakshi, who is the DYFI state committee president, is contesting for the first time. The main rivals are Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee from the Trinamool and Sukhendu Adhikari from the BJP. The Sukhendu authority also filed the petition on Friday.
This is the constituency where Sukhendu Adhikari, Mamata’s right-hand man and cabinet minister, won last time with a majority of over 60,000 votes. Sukhendu recently defected to Mamata Banerjee and joined the BJP. After challenging Sukhendu, Mamata left her hometown of Bhavanipur in Kolkata to contest in Nandigram. Sukhendu has announced that he will quit politics if he does not defeat Mamata by more than half a lakh votes.
