Days after Suvendu Adhikari left Trinamool Congress (TMC) to join the BJP, TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced that she would contest the state assembly election 2021 from her former aide's turf Nandigram.

Addressing the Nandigram rally, Mamata Banerjee said, "I want to request Subrata Bakshi [TMC general secretary], it is my wish, I will not neglect Bhabanipur, I will give good candidate [for Bhabanipur] but I want my name in Nandigram. Due to my love for Nandigram, I could not control my emotions".
