Wife of Union Minister Priyaranjan Dasmunshi, Deepa Dasmunsi has stepped into her ailing husband’s shoes, and her campaign was dotted with her husband’s pictures, and the work he’d done for Raiganj, especially a train to Calcutta and the promise of an AIIMS-type medical institution. Her success largely depended on her husband, a Congress heavyweight.
