bhishek Banerjee, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s nephew, has come up with an innovative campaign idea as political temperatures soar in the state.
A video of Abhishek Banerjee campaigning in an open jeep as his supporters raise slogans has gone viral on social media.
But there is a catch.
Instead of campaigning himself, TMC candidate Abhishek Banerjee has sent his statue to do the needful.
With garlands around its neck and folded hands, Abhishek Banerjee’s statue is mounted on the jeep. Surrounded by supporters raising slogans in support of Abhishek Banerjee, one almost fails to spot the difference.
The video, tweeted by one Rishi Bagree, was shared by Member of Parliament Swapan Dasgupta. In the tweet, Bagree alleges that Abhishek Banerjee, MP from Diamond Harbour constituency, allegedly used the statue to avoid the summer heat.
Abhishek Banerjee is contesting the Lok Sabha elections from Diamond Harbour constituency for a second time and has declared movable assets worth Rs 71.4 lakh.
