Earlier, reports had suggested that Banerjee was winning the seat by a slim margin of 1,200 votes.
Ms Banerjee has conceded defeat to Adhikari in Nandigram.
“Don’t worry about Nandigram, I struggled for Nandigram because I fought a movement. It’s okay. Let the Nandigram people give whatever verdict they want, I accept that. I don’t mind. We won more than 221 seats and BJP has lost the election,” Ms Banerjee said. (UNI)
