Bharatiya Janata Party's leader Suvendu Adhikari today called himself a "bhoomiputra" as he filed his documents to contest the West Bengal Assembly election from Nandigram. "I am a bhoomiputra (son of this land) and I will win," Suvendu declared after filing his poll papers.
He is pitted by the saffron party against his former political leader and Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in the Nandigram constituency.
Suvendu was accompanied by Union Ministers Smriti Irani and Dharmendra Pradhan. Taking a jibe at Mamata on her shift from 'Didi' to 'Beti', Smriti asked, "I came to ask Didi that which daughter needs to be voted? Who thrashed an 80-yr-old woman? Who murdered BJP workers? Who doesn't allow Durga idol immersion & Saraswati Puja? Who does Chandi Path when she comes to Nandigram & says Khela Hobe?"
"The people of the state are awaiting 'Asol Poribortan' (real change)," she said.
