Congratulations to the winning candidates of All India Trinamool Congress in the Municipal Elections. (1/2).
The Kanthi Municipality, which was an “Adhikary” bastion held by Suvendu Adhikary’s family for the last 35 years, was always with the TMC and this time too it has remained so. Suvendu quit the TMC and switched over to the BJP in December 2020. All members of his family were members of this municipality.
