Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC candidate from Bhabanipur (bypoll), Mamata Banerjee made a sudden visit to seek blessings at Sola Ana Masjid of the constituency.
Urging people to vote for her, Mamata said that she gave a sudden visit as rallies are not allowed.
Incidentally, the ward that TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee along with Firhad Hakim visited gave maximum lead to the Trinamool Congress in the recently concluded Assembly polls.
Slamming Mamata Banerjee, BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya said that in the next few days she will hop from booth to booth.
“If you thought Bhabanipur was a “no contest” and Mamata Banerjee was confident of winning hands down, forget it. She is sweating. This visit to Sola Ana Masjid is not “sudden” but a planned visit to seek votes from ward 77. In the next few days, she will hop from booth to booth,” claimed Malviya.
Incidentally, a delegation of BJP leaders visited the state election commission to ask for a free and fair election.
TMC MP Arjun Singh said, “The TMC is trying to influence state government’s workers in the booths so we have urged them to utilize central government workers as well.”
