West Bengal polls: Netaji's kin to take on Mamata

Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's grandnephew Chandra Kumar Bose will be BJP’s candidate for the Bhowanipore Assembly seat.

 
He will face West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee in upcoming elections, Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani said in national capital on Wednesday.
 
Bose, the 55-year old grandson of Netaji's elder brother Sarat Chandra Bose, had joined Bharatiya Janata Party in January.
 
Congress has decided to name its state unit general secretary Om Prakash Mishra against Banerjee.
