Anticipating a bitter clash with former close aide Suvendu Adhikari now with BJP, West Bengal Mamata Banerjee has intensified efforts to woo voters before campaigning for the second phase of the assembly poll ends in Nandigram on Tuesday evening. To woo the voters she did a ‘padyatra’ from Khudiram More to Thakur Chawk in Nandigram.
Adhikari had earlier said that BJP will defeat Banerjee by over 50,000 votes from Nandigram. The BJP will also be bringing in big names to counter the Trinamool Congress’s top leader.
Senior BJP leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah will take on Mamata in a massive roadshow in Nandigram on Tuesday to bat for Adhikari.
Bollywood star Mithun Chakraborty is also expected to conduct a roadshow in Nandigram ahead of polling. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had addressed a public rally for Suvendu Adhikari earlier. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath too had come to campaign in the constituency.
