The Bharatiya Janata Party has fielded advocate and vice president of the party’s youth wing in West Bengal, Priyanka Tibrewal. She will shoulder the responsibility of taking on West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee from Bhabanipur assembly constituency in south Kolkata. Bhabanipur is Mamata’s home turf, the seat from which she clinched the throne of Bengal from the 34-year-long left rule in 2011. The Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief needs to win this by-election to retain her chief ministerial post. While the bye-poll is scheduled for September 30, the counting will be held on October 3.

The young leader Tibrewal was born on July 7, 1981. She did her schooling at Welland Goulsmith School, Kolkata. She pursued her graduation from Delhi and gained a law degree from Hazara Law College, University of Kolkata. She also has an MBA in HR from Thailand assumption University. She is known for taking a stand for women’s empowerment.

She joined the BJP in August 2014. Prior to that, she worked as a legal counsel for Babul Supriyo. She forayed into politics with his help. In 2015, she contested in Kolkata’s municipal elections, from ward 58, which she lost to the Trinamool Congress’s Swapan Sammadar.

Tibrewal has been an active and vocal young leader of the party in the state. She was one of the petitioners in the post-poll violence cases in the Calcutta High Court. The court had ordered a CBI probe into the violence, which the BJP considered as a victory for its stance.
