Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mamata Banerjee will start her campaign for the Bhabanipur bypoll with a workers’ meet tomorrow.
Mamata Banerjee will only address TMC workers from all wards in the constituency at an auditorium at around 3 pm tomorrow.
The TMC on Sunday announced it has decided to field Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for the September 30 by-poll in the Bhabanipur assembly seat.
Mamata Banerjee, who lost the election in Nandigram, will have to win this bypoll to retain her chief minister’s post.
TMC’s Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay had won from Bhababnipur. He, however, vacated the seat soon after to allow it to go to bypoll for Mamata Banerjee to contest from there.
The bypoll will be held on September 30 along with the elections to two seats in the Murshidabad district — Samserganj and Jangipur where polling could not be held during the eight-phase assembly elections earlier this year.
