Meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee reached the assembly constituency on March 28 and will remain there till the end of voting.
A large number of fans of veteran Bollywood star Mithun Chakraborty in West Bengal will also hold a roadshow in Nandigram before the voting.
The second phase of the West Bengal Election 2021 will be held on April 1.
The high-voltage election campaign saw bitter rivalry between TMC chief Mamata Banerjee and BJP leader Shuvendu Adhikari on the day of Holi.
