BENGALURU: Senior JD(S) leader HD Kumaraswamy on Sunday congratulated West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on winning the bypoll to Bhowanipore assembly constituency with a huge margin.
While wishing Banerjee in a series of tweets, he also hit out at BJP for fielding a candidate against Banerjee.
“Hearty congratulations to West Bengal chief minister @MamataOfficial for registering a glorious and historic victory in the byelection from Bhowanipore assembly seat,” Kumaraswamy tweeted.

He said the BJP displayed a stubborn attitude by fielding a candidate against her though the people’s mandate was in her favour. The former CM said BJP leader Rajiv Banerjee himself had said that she will win by a huge margin and his prediction came true.

“The BJP should have helped in ensuring unopposed election of Mamata Banerjee by shunning political narrow mindedness. It’s my personal view that such a gesture would have helped the BJP to retain its dignity,” Kumaraswamy said.

Five months after spearheading TMC to a landslide win in the assembly election, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee scored a personal point with a massive victory on Sunday in the Bhowanipore bypoll with a record margin of 58,835 votes. Banerjee secured 85,263 votes while her nearest rival and BJP’s Priyanka Tibrewal garnered 26,428 votes. CPI(M)’s Srijib Biswas polled 4,226 votes.
