BJP on Wednesday declared Chandra Kumar Bose, grand-nephew of Subhash Chandra Bose, its candidate against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Bhawanipur constituency in the upcoming Assembly elections.

“Chandra Kumar Bose will be BJP’s candidate against Mamata Banerjee,” Union Minister Smriti Irani said in a press conference in Kolkata.

BJP is trying hard to make its presence felt in the state where it had drawn a blank in the Assembly polls, and the party believes that a high-pitched battle against the TMC chief could be of help.

Bose said the change for which people had voted the TMC to power in 2011 had not come, and only the BJP was capable of bringing it.

Asked about his chances, Bose said it was not about him, but about the people of West Bengal.
