Announcing the candidates, Mamta said that I want the blessings of the people. Have faith in me. Only Trinamool Congress can work for the development of Bengal, so that Bengal becomes the top state of the country. We have worked very hard in the last 10 years.

Mamta further said that we have given tickets to eminent personalities from the fields of art, sports, media and culture. 23-24 sitting MLAs of Trinamool Congress have not been fielded this time due to age and other reasons.
Mamta Banerjee claimed to return to power for the third time in a row and termed it as the easiest election. He said that after coming to power, we will get the Legislative Council formed so that senior and experienced leaders can be accommodated. We could not accommodate everyone especially people over the age of 80. She said that I will contest from Nandigram assembly seat, while Shobhandev Chattopadhyay will contest from Bhawanipur seat. Banerjee challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah to deploy as many central forces as they wanted, but the Trinamool Congress would win. (also from input language)
