New Delhi: Chandana Bauri (30)-BJP candidate for Saltora Assembly seat in West Bengal’s Bankura, is one of the poorest nominees in the poll race.
Chandana’s husband is a ‘mason’ who works as a daily wager earning about Rs 400 for a day’s work.
As life is difficult for daily wage workers during the monsoon season, so at that time Chandana works as a helper with him to support her family.
Both husband and wife are MNREGA card holders. They have three children.
Assets of Chandana Bauri
– 3 goats
– 3 cows
– A mud house with no toilet
– Rs 31, 985 in cash & bank deposits.
Since Chandana is a senior district BJP member, the ticket is like a like a blessing for the 30-year-old.
As election dates are coming closer, Chandana leaves her house in Kelai village in Gangajalghati block by 8 am every day for campaigning.
For the last two times, Trinamool’s Swapan Barui has won from Saltora constituency reserved for Scheduled Castes by a margin of over 10,000 votes. Meanwhile, in 2021 elections the party has fielded a Santosh Kumar Mandal as the new candidate.
