On the other hand, after taking over the post of Bengal BJP President, Sukanta Majumdar came to campaign in support of Priyanka Tibrewal but he was accused of obstructing the campaign and had an argument with the police about it.
On the other hand, the Union Minister is campaigning in different areas in Bhawanipur. He visited the Shyamaprasad Mukherjee and Netaji Bhavan. Hardeep Singh Puri is scheduled to have lunch at a party worker's house on Alipore Park Road. During the campaign, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said, "Everyone knows how Trinamool won.

It must be noted that there is a by-election in Bhawanipur on 30th September and BJP has fielded Priyanka Tibrewal against Trinamool Congress candidate and state CM Mamta Banerjee.
It must be noted that there are ample Hindi-speaking voters of Bhawanipur. About 40% of the voters are Gujarati and there are also Marwaris, Sikhs, and people from Bihar. Apart from this, about 20% are Muslims and the rest 40% are Bengalis. All the parties are trying to win the hearts of Hindi-speaking people.
During the 2021 elections, state agriculture minister Shobhandeb Chattopadhyay won the Bhawanipur seat by a margin of 29,000 votes but was left behind in wards 70 and 74. Mainly Hindi speaking people live in those wards. Traditionally, the BJP gets the vote of a large section of Hindi-speaking people.
