West Bengal Assembly Elections 2021: With West Bengal polls inching closer, the state has been witnessing major political developments at regular intervals. The ruling Trinamool Congress, which is quite confident of winning the polls, has launched a series of attacks on the Bharatiya Janata Party on the issues of farmers, job creation, and economy. The Saffron Camp, on the other hand, is leaving no stone unturned to woo the voters of the state with promises to turn Bengal into ‘Sonar Bangla’ again.

Here are the top developments:
Mamata Banerjee on Monday declared she will contest the upcoming assembly election from Nandigram, as she took her battle for West Bengal to the home turf of BJP heavyweight Suvendu Adhikari.
BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari accepts the challenge thrown by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to contest from his Nandigram assembly seat, asserting he will defeat her in the election or quit politics.
“If I am fielded by my party from Nandigram, I will defeat her by a margin of at least 50,000 votes or I will quit politics,” Suvendu Adhikari said.
Ruckus broke out at Suvendu Adhikari’s election rally in South Kolkata. Stones were pelted and several vehicles were vandalised as the BJP took out a rally in Trinamool Congress’ turf in Mudali area.
