Kolkata: Few had already declared Mamata Banerjee as a winner at the end of a close fight with BJP’s Suvendu Adhikari in the Nandigram Assembly Constituency.

After 6 pm, though, ‘news’ came through that it was actually Suvendu who had managed victory by a narrow margin in the most high-profile constituency in West Bengal Assembly Elections 2021.

Mamata is not too perturbed though.

“It’s nothing… I accept what the people wanted… In a way I’m relieved that I don’t have to go all the way to Nandigram (from Kolkata),” Mamata said while addressing journalists and a group of supporters from a distance.

“They first said something, then we were told about this result.. I’ve heard there could be some foul play. We’ll move the court if needed,” Mamata said.

“We are grateful to the people for this landslide victory. We are getting about 220 seats… one doesn’t matter… it’s a team game. I have to start working for COVID-19 immediately. The swearing-in will be a low-key event because of the prevailing pandemic situation,” The TMC supremo said.

Urging her supporters not to take out victory rallies, she said it’s important for all to look after those who are infected by coronavirus. “We’ll have a big victory rally at Shahid Minar… after COVID situation improves. We’ll announce the date later.”
