What went wrong for @MamataOfficial in #Nandigram ? Interestingly @AITCofficial swept #Bengal. It did pretty well in #Medinipur region. Still she lost in Nandigram which is against the trend of the election. I am trying to analyze the mistakes in strategy by her. 1/n
Now to fight election u need to read game theory. U need to predict what could be the opposition move. #Subhendu could only win election by polarizing voters in religious line. He can't defeat @MamataOfficial by any other means. 2/n
In such a context, @MamataOfficial made a tactical error. She made #AbuSufiyan as her election agent at #Nandigram . Also she was dependent on #AbuTaher. Both these leaders have muscle power. It made the election polarized. #AbuSufiyan is not considered as non corrupt. 3/n

One of the early stories I reported was from panchayat polls in #Nandigram, soon after the farmers' rebellion, just as Mamata began to topple the CPIM edifice.
It was an illustration, and a caution, about interpreting images of violence during polls in West Bengal /n
The intimidation and violence, even sexual assault, mostly by the CPIM cadre, was serious. On polling day, the CRPF was heavily deployed, led by an admired DIG Alok Raj.

I was with a patrol when two TMC activists approached, asking for help at a village called Garupara /n
They said CPM men were obstructing the way there and scaring off voters.

We followed them. On the path we found a woman, so old her torso was lined like a leaf, knocked to the ground by goons. The local CPM candidate left the scene on a bike as we arrived, visibly sneering. /n

[1/n]. As per the final round (R-17) results after vote counting (cumulative), #SuvenduAdhikari (1,09,673) won by a margin of 1,736 votes against #MamataBanerjee (1,07,937).

[3/n]. But the above tally does not match with the final results for constituency-wise candidates. The latter shows that #SuvenduAdhikari (1,10,764) won by a margin of 1,956 votes against #MamataBanerjee (1,08,808).

#SupremeCourt to shortly hear an appeal by West Bengal Govt and Mamata Banerjee's election agent SK Supian against the Calcutta High Court order which had revived 14-year-old criminal cases against Supian and others registered during #Nandigram violence
#SupremeCourt had earlier stayed the High Court order with respect with SK Supian. The order by the HC was passed on a PIL filed by @BJP4Bengal leader Dipak Misra.
Senior Advocates Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Siddharth Luthra appear for petitioner.

Respondents state Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi is appearing for Dipak Misra and is arguing in another court

What is interesting is that the leftist journalists stand outside ramshackle houses, watching impoverished bodies, poverty written all over, and then they shove mike in the mouth of scared people and ask- Do you think @MamataOfficial has done development here? #Nandigram
Here are some details from Haldia Development Authority report (2018). "Most of the household level potable water supply in Nandigram I & II Blocks is
through tubewell. Presence of iron is often reported in many locations" - Is there #Hindu polarisation if you oppose TMC?
#Sanitisation Villages with lower level of
access to safe sanitation facilities and drainage are on high risk to contaminate the surface
water sources. - Reporter- You want to vote for @BJP4India due to polarisation? #WestBengalPolls

West Bengal CM @MamataOfficial injured. In severe pain. Foot injury. sketchy details. Swelling in the foot. A team of doctors rushes to the CM. Someone tried to push her. TMC to complain to election commission. CM wants to return to Kolkata. No local police. 4-5 people pushed her
There was no one from local police, says @MamataOfficial. Says she was intentionally pushed. Also complains of chest pain. BJP says let there be a CBI investigation. Claims this is to gain sympathy. TMC says even CM not safe & security to woman CM was inadequate. Moving 2 Kolkata
``Green Corridor'' for @MamataOfficial to be shifted to #Kolkata. Will be rushed to the hospital. BJP calls it a publicity stunt after looking at ground reality at #Nandigram. BJP's Priyanka Tibrewal says ground beneath Mamata's feet slipping. Let there be an independent probe..

Have been watching the evolution of @DilipGhoshBJP with admiration. Over the last four years he has really come of age and emerged as a leader to reckon with in #WestBengal vindicating his selection as @BJP4Bengal President. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
2/n PM #NarendraModi takes stage - referring to the #UttarakhandAvalanche drawing a link between the source of the Ganga in #Uttarakhand and its meeting with the sea near #Haldia. #ModiInBengal #WestBengalElection2021
3/n As per @DilipGhoshBJP the gathering is around 3 lakhs from the 3 districts of erstwhile undivided #Medinipur. Impressive mobilisation. Certainly @SuvenduWB's entry would have made a big difference. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
