West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will take oath as a member of the state’s assembly on October 7 after emerging victorious in the recently concluded Bhawanipur constituency.

The state's  Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar said he will administer oath to Banerjee and other two TMC MLAs on October 7.

Banerjee won the Bhawanipur by-poll with a record margin of 58,835 votes. She needed to win the election to retain the CM's chair.

Jakir Hossain was declared victorious by a huge margin of 92,480 votes from the Jangipur constituency, while Amirul Islam won from Samserganj by a margin of 26,379 votes.

The results were declared on Sunday.
