Nandigram witnessed a high voltage “Khela” (game of power) on April 1,2021 in the second phase of West Bengal assembly polls .The constituency saw a direct contest between Banerjee and her former ministerial colleague Suvendu Adhikari, who had joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in December 2020. Both Mamata and Suvendu led a very aggressive campaign and indulged in attacks and counterattacks.

On May 2, the returning officer declared Suvendu Adhikari to be winner after 17 rounds of counting. Mamata Banerjee called the result fraud and decided to move High Court over recounting. Due to BJP’s overall loss in the state election, Nandigram seat became a battle of prestige.

Since Suvendu was declared winner on May 2, TMC workers had started protesting outside the counting centre. The area heated up as soon as the BJP candidate reached the counting centre in Haldia from Kolaghat Guest House to pick up his certificate on Sunday evening. Trinamool supporters staged a massive protest surrounding Suvendu’s car after seeing him. Central Forces were protecting Suvendu’s car while it took a round turn and left the area.

TMC workers alleged that the counting was stopped for 3 hours, the result was overturned after power cut and their agent was beaten up and expelled (from the counting centre) by the central force (or miscreants allegedly brought by Suvendu Adhikari).From the night of May 2 TMC workers and supporters started dharna in front of SDO Office at Manjushree crossing in Haldia demanding recount in Nandigram. Hundreds of policemen and central troops were deployed around the counting centre.
