Debangshu Bhattacharya, 27, who gained popularity for writing the song Khela Hobe during the 2021 West Bengal assembly elections, is making his electoral debut as the Trinamool Congress’s Lok Sabha candidate from Tamluk. The young politician is in the fray against Abhijit Ganguly, the BJP candidate and controversial former Calcutta High Court judge. 

In a conversation with Newslaundry on his campaign trail, Bhattacharya spoke about his contest in Tamluk, Sandeshkhali controversy, Mamata Banerjee’s tenure, and the BJP in West Bengal. He said his real contest is against the Adhikari family, referring to Suvendu Adhikari’s influence in the region. “My fight is against Suvendu Adhikari, not with Abhijit Ganguly. People say Tamluk is the Adhikari family’s bastion. I want to change that trend.”   

He also slammed Ganguly for canceling the appointment of school teachers and alleged corruption in the recruitment process. “People eat rice and roti. But Abhijit Ganguly ate up jobs.”
