Priyanka’s name has been floating in the air for the last two or three days as a BJP candidate in Bhabanipur. Because many BJP leaders turned down the offer to contest in Bhabanipur For the past two days, Priyanka has been campaigning on Facebook in support of the Bhabanipur by-election. When asked about this, BJP state president Dilip Ghosh replied, “Where the opposition is the chief minister, he cannot be nominated.” The BJP state president further claimed that Priyanka Tibrewal’s name was not even sent to Delhi.
However, in the end, the central leadership of the BJP fielded Priyanka Tibrewal against Mamata Banerjee. As a result, the question arises, did the central leaders of the party impose their choice on the state leaders with the candidates in the Bhabanipur by-election as in the 2021 assembly elections?
Priyanka Tibrewal, Babul Supriya’s legal adviser, joined the BJP in 2014, following the example of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He was also in charge of important posts in the BJP Youth Front. In the Ekushey assembly elections, he was fielded from Antali, but lost to BJP candidate Priyanka Tibrewal by a margin of 56,000 votes to Trinamool candidate Swarnakamal Saha. If his militant mentality in Antalya had garnered praise for the BJP leadership
Priyanka, a lawyer by profession, has been fighting for the BJP on the issue of post-vote terrorism. He also played a significant role in bringing home BJP workers home after the election. He continued to work in regular contact with other central agencies, including the Human Rights Commission.
Dilip Ghosh first claimed that the BJP would field a big name against Mamata Banerjee. The fight will be equally 6 But in reality, the BJP is in trouble when it comes to finding candidates Because none of the senior leaders of the party and well-known faces were willing to face the Chief Minister in a difficult seat like Bhabanipur. After a few days of searching, the BJP leadership finally found Priyanka, who lost the Assembly elections, as a ‘worthy’ candidate in Bhabanipur. Now all these questions are circulating within the state BJP
However, according to another BJP source, the central leadership announced Priyanka Tibrewal’s name only after Dilip Ghosh and Shuvendu Adhikari agreed to field him in Bhabanipur.
