Kolkata, May 13 (UNI) For the first time in the electoral history of West Bengal, father-son duo will be seen in action in the Assembly.

Trinamool Congress heavyweight Sisir Adhikary not only snuffed out the challenge of state Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prabodh Chandra Sinha of the Left Front-backed Democratic Socialist Party (DSP) by 1533 votes from the latter's bastion in Egra Assembly seat of East Midnapore district, but also ensured a facile victory of his son Subhendu Adhikary.

The junior Adhikary, also a Trinamool Congress nominee, got the better of CPI candidate Satyendra Nath Panda from Contai South Assembly constituency of the same district by a margin of 9704 votes.

The state had never witnessed both father and son entering the House at a time.

The father-son combination in the bench of Opposition would have to take on the might of the ruling Left Front Ministry, going to take oath of office and secrecy on May 18.
