Kolkata, Sept 12: Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) candidate Priyanka Tebriwal will file her nomination papers for Bhabanipur seat on Monday against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
She has kickstarted the poll campaign along with Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh by painting the party symbol on a wall in the Bhabanipur constituency today.
Tibrewal targeted the Chief Minister over post-poll violence and said that the people of the state have the right to live but this right is being taken away by Mamata Banerjee and her party. “I am fighting for the people of Bengal”, she added.
She later appealed to the people of West Bengal to come out and cast their vote.
Notably, the Congress has announced that the party will not be fielding any candidate for the Bhabanipur by-polls.
Bypolls will be held in Bhabanipur on September 30 and results will be declared by October 3.
