Background

The Election Commission had announced by-polls to four assembly seats on September 30, 2021, which includes West Bengal’s Bhabanipur assembly constituency, the seat from which Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is contesting. The West Bengal CM, who took the oath of office on May 5, needs to get elected to the state assembly within six month (by November) to continue as the chief minister of the state.

Though her party, Trinamool Congress (TMC) swept to power by winning 213 out of the total 292 seats in the West Bengal Elections 2021, she lost from Nandigram constituency to turncoat Suvendu Adhikari by a narrow margin of 1,956 votes. 

Besides Bhabanipur, by-polls will be held on September 30th in three other assembly seats- Jangipur, Samerganj in West Bengal and Pipli in Odisha. The polls for Jangipur and Samerganj assembly constituencies were postponed due to the death of Congress candidate in Samserganj and RSP candidate in Jangipur.
