In West Bengal, the Trinamall Congress won a huge vote but Mamata Banerjee herself lost the election from the Nandigram seat. She was defeated by Shubhendu Adhikari by about 1,700 votes. However, Mamata Banerjee said she will go to court against this decision. But even though she was defeated, becoming his manager had no problem.
Under Article 164 of the Constitution of India, she can take the oath of CM. According to Article 164 (4), “A minister who is not a member of the state legislature for six consecutive months shall resign his office.” This means that Mamata Banerjee will have to win the election from any seat in the assembly within six months. She was also a Member of Parliament in 2011 when she became a Member of Parliament for the first time. Did not run in the Council elections. A few months later, she was elected from Bhabanipur.
Congress leader and legal expert Abhishek Singhvi said, “No one should legally and morally object to Mamata Banerjee becoming a member of the House of Representatives and being elected within six months. If someone objects to this, it means that he has no knowledge of the constitution.”
The TMC government will be formed in Bengal for the third time in a row. This victory places Mamata Banerjee in a group that does not belong to the BJP, and does not belong to the Congress at the national level.
