TMC gets power from the Nandigram movement
Let us tell you that Banerjee came to power in 2011 only because of the agitation in Nandigram against the land acquisition. This time in the second phase of Vidhan Sabha elections, he will face his own trusted colleague Shuvendu Adhikari, who has now joined BJP. The officer has pledged to defeat Mamata Banerjee by 50 thousand votes.
