The Election Petition moved by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee before the Calcutta High Court challenging Suvendu Adhikari's election win from the Nandigram constituency in the West Bengal Assembly Polls will be heard next week on Thursday (June 24).

The Bench of Justice Kaushik Chandra listed the matter for next week after the matter was mentioned before the bench and Banerjee's counsel Soumendra Nath Mukherjee urged the bench to keep the same for directions next week.

Accepting his request, the Bench directed the registry to list the matter on June 24, meanwhile, a report has been sought by the Court as to whether the petition has been filed in conformity with the Representation of People Act or not.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was up against the TMC turncoat and BJP candidate Adhikari in the Nandigram Vidhan Sabha Constituency and she was defeated by Adhikari.

However, despite Banerjee's loss in the fiercely-fought Nandigram seat, the ruling Trinamool Congress swept the polls and formed the government in West Bengal for the third consecutive term.
