In the recently concluded elections, Hooghly constituency has elected Dr Ratna De (Nag) of the Trinamool Congress, rejecting eight-time MP and CPI (M) candidate Rupchand Pal, and Sajal Adhikari , CPM. Within Hooghly comes the district of Singur, the site that was originally porposed for the Tata Motors Nano plant. The AITC was responsible for the site being abandoned. This show of support for the farmer’s welfare has definitely helped the AITC to increase its support base, and was a major factor in the party success.
