Kolkata, Sept 20: Leader of Opposition in West Bengal Assembly Suvendu Adhikari on Monday said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will not field any candidate for Rajya Sabha bypoll.
“BJP will not nominate any candidate for Rajyasabha bypoll due in West Bengal. The outcome is predetermined. Our focus is to make sure unelected CM to be unelected once again. Jai Ma Kali,” tweeted Adhikari.
Notably, Trinamool Congress (TMC) last week nominated Sushmita Dev for the Rajya Sabha bypoll from West Bengal.
The Election Commission had earlier this month announced bypolls for six Rajya Sabha seats across five states – two in Tamil Nadu and one seat each in West Bengal, Maharashtra, Assam and Madhya Pradesh. Voting for all seats is scheduled for October 4.
