In West Bengal's Raigunj Lok Sabha seat, sitting Congress MP Deepa Dasmunshi is contesting against brother-in-law Satyaranjan Dasmunshi of Trinamool Congress.

Deepa was married to former information and broadcasting minister Priyaranjan Dasmunshi, who has been lying in Coma at a Delhi Hospital since last few years.

From different floors of the same family house in Raiganj, the duo of sister-in-law and brother-in-law are running their campaigns.

Satyaranjan says their fight is political and because of their family bond they never make any personal comments against each other in poll meetings.

"I don’t comment against her since we are from the same family. I prefer making positive comments about the party and don’t forget to mention the hard works done by our party head Mamata Banerjee," he says.

Similarly, Trinamool's Dasrath Tirkey and Left Front's sitting MP Manohar Tirkey are married into the same family but will now be fighting against each other from Alipurduar seat in Jalpaiguri district.

"Our political relations are just opposite of our personal relations," said Manohar.
