West Bengal Election Result 2021 Mamata Banerjee swearing-in Live: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee will be taking oath as Chief Minister of West Bengal for the third time in a row. The swearing-in ceremony will be a low-key programme due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. Mamata Banerjee’s swearing-in will take place at Raj Bhavan in Kolkata today. Notably, no BJP leader has been invited to the ceremony. Invitations have been sent to her predecessor Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, leader of Opposition of the outgoing House Abdul Mannan and CPI(M) veteran leader Biman Bose. Among others, TMC and Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee, TMC’s poll-strategist Prashant Kishor and party leader Firhad Hakim are likely to be present at the ceremony scheduled to be held at the Raj Bhavan. BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has also been invited to the ceremony. Chief ministers of other states and leaders of other political parties have not been invited to the programme keeping in mind the current COVID-19 situation in the country.
