BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari
West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee lost the Nandigram seat to BJP's Suvendu Adhikari in a neck and neck fight. Banerjee lost to Adhikari by a narrow margin of 1622 votes, reports Anandabazar.
Earlier, some Indian newspapers reported that Mamata defeated her former aide Suvendu by a margin of 1,200 seats. It is said that due to a problem in the server, something is not known properly.
Regarding this, Suvendu said, 'I won by 1622 votes'. However, Suvendu's margin of victory with Mamata without the postal ballot was 9787 votes.
In a press conference just after the results were announced, the West Bengal chief minister said, "Don't worry about Nandigram, I struggled for Nandigram because I fought a movement. It's ok. Let the Nandigram people give whatever verdict they want, I accept that. I don't mind. We won more than 221 seats & BJP has lost the election."
Shortly afterward, the Trinamool tweeted that the counting was still going on in Nandigram. The tweet also requested not to listen to any speculation.
However, Mamata expressed her gratitude to the people of Bengal for her team's victory despite her defeat. She congratulated everyone for the victory of Bengal. The victory of Bengal, the victory of the people. Bengal has saved India today.
Mamata complained that the people of Nandigram did well. At the same time, Mamata said she would go to court against the confusion over the results. She said, "I have a complaint, there has been fraud after the verdict was announced."
Earlier, news agency ANI reported that Mamata had won Nandigram by 1202 votes. The counting of votes was stopped for 40 minutes at noon due to a server error. Even after the news of Mamata's victory came to light, the commission could not release any information. Later, it is known that Suvendu has won in Nandigram. However, no statement has been issued by the commission so far.
This time, before the vote, Suvendu gave a 'challenge' to defeat Mamata. The Trinamool leader left her seat in Kolkata and took up the challenge in Nandigram. However, the last defense was not in Nandigram.
