Mamata Announces She Will Contest From Nandigram, Says 'When I Make a Promise I Keep It'

West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee announced on Friday the list of 291 candidates of the Trinamool Congress for the upcoming assembly elections, which will take place in eight phases between March 27 and April 29. Banerjee confirmed she will contest the high-profile Nandigram seat, which shot to limelight following violence linked to an agitation against land acquisition by the then Left government in 2007. She also said she would not contest her traditional seat in south Kolkata's Bhabanipur, which will go to 'my friend and colleague Sovandeb Chattopadhyay'.
