Voting was held on the hotseat of Nandigram during the second round of voting in West Bengal, where CM Mamata Banerjee and BJP’s Shubhendu Adhikari are in the fray. With this, everyone’s eyes are now fixed on another popular seat in Taligunj. Actually Taliganj seat is seen as a stronghold of Bangla cinema in the state. Most of the studios of Bengali cinema called Tollywood are here. It can also be called the film city of Bangla cinema. To capitalize on this, the BJP has fielded high-profile candidate Babul Supriyo from here. He has been a singer and has been very popular in Bengali cinema. The contest here has become interesting since the landing of Union Minister Babul Supriyo.
TMC has once again fielded Arup Biswas, who has been an MLA from this seat for three consecutive times. Voting for this seat is to be held on April 10 in the fourth phase. Earlier, the promotion for the third phase has ended and the focus is on the fourth round. In such a situation, the Taliganj assembly seat has become important. On Monday, SP’s Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan is scheduled to hold rallies in support of TMC candidate Arup Biswas. Jaya Bachchan of Bengali origin has been called the daughter of Bengal. CM Mamta Banerjee recently appealed to all opposition parties to unite against BJP. It is believed that the effect of that appeal is that Jaya Bachchan has reached Kolkata.
Why is Babul Supriyo confident of winning from Tallygunge
BJP candidate and Union Minister Babul Supriyo is confident of winning this seat. Babul Supriyo, who is compared to the three-time MLA, says that he will be able to help Tasiganj along with Asansol. He is an MP from Asansol Lok Sabha seat. Supriyo says, ‘I am able to handle both Asansol and Tallygunge. I have done a lot of good work in Asansol and PM Narendra Modi’s public welfare schemes have reached the people. He says that I have worked and I need not fear, people who are corrupt need to be afraid. Singer-turned-politician Babul Supriyo says he is confident of the support of his Bangla cinema peers. Supriyo says that TMC threatens artists here.
Arup Biswas’s margin of victory was only 10,000 votes in 2016.
Talking about Arup Biswas, he has been elected twice on the TMC ticket. Arup Biswas, who had won continuously in 2011 and 2016, won the last election with a margin of 10,000 votes. In such a situation, it is believed that this time the public can place a bet on Babul Supriyo in his place. At the moment, the election campaign has gained momentum and TMC has also invited Jaya Bachchan to campaign in addition to its leaders. Heavyweight leaders can also be called by the BJP for campaigning in the coming days.
