Mamata Banerjee is contesting the elections from Nandigram and Bhawanipore.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will contest the upcoming elections in the state from Nandigram.

West Bengal's Legislative Assembly elections for 294 seats are expected to be held in 2021. While addressing a public meeting on Jan. 18, 2021, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced that she would contest the upcoming elections in the state from Nandigram, and if possible, she would also contest from Bhawanipore in south Kolkata. She is currently the MLA from Bhawanipore. "I will contest from Nandigram. Nandigram is my lucky place. Nandigram is my big sister, Bhawanipore is my younger sister... I will fight from both if possible. In case I am unable to contest from Bhawanipore, someone else would contest," she was quoted as saying. BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari will be contesting from Nandigram against Banerjee.
