New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has won Bhabanipur bypolls by nearly 59,000 votes. Mamata defeated the BJP’s Priyanka Tibrewal. This makes Banerjee a member of the state Legislative Assembly and will allow her to continue as Chief Minister of West Bengal.

‘I have won the Bhabanipur Assembly bypolls with a margin of 58,832 votes and have registered the victory in every ward of the constituency, said Mamata Banerjee

‘Around 46% of people here (in Bhabanipur) are non-Bengalis. They all have voted for me. People of West Bengal are watching Bhabanipur, which has inspired me, she added

‘Since the elections started in Bengal, Central Govt hatched conspiracies to remove us (from power). I was hurt in my feet so that I don’t contest the polls. I am grateful to the public for voting for us & to ECI for conducting polls within 6 months’, said Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had lost to BJP’s Suvendu Adhikari in the Nandigram constituency in the assembly elections held earlier this year. The Bhabanipur assembly seat was vacated by the West Bengal Agriculture Minister Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay in May, paving the way for Mamata Banerjee to contest the bypoll.
