Netaji's grandnephew Sugata Bose wins from Bengal's Jadavpur
Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's grandnephew Sugata Bose Friday registered a thumping win from the Jadavpur Lok Sabha seat in West Bengal as a Trinamool Congress candidate.
Bose, son of Netaji's nephew Sisir Kumar Bose, defeated his nearest rival, Communist Party of India-Marxist's Sujan Chakraborty by a margin of 125,440 votes.
Bose's mother Krishna Bose was a three-time MP from the constituency. She won on a Congress ticket in 1996 and repeated her success in 1998 and 1999 as a Trinamool nominee.
Bose's mother had lost to Chakraborty from Jadavpur in 2004.
