Bengal: BJP Winning 122 Seats In First 5 Phases, Mamata Losing Nandigram, Says Amit ShahHome Minister Amit Shah.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah has claimed that the BJP will emerge victorious in 122 out of 180 seats that have gone to polls in the first five phases of the West Bengal assembly elections so far.

The senior BJP leader also asserted that incumbent Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is set to lose the Nandigram constituency to her former aide Suvendu Adhikari who joined the BJP in December 2020.

“Mamata Banerjee’s defeat is inevitable. She has been chief minister for 10 years. So, we cannot offer her an ordinary farewell. It must be a grand affair and you can ensure that by giving the BJP more than 200 seats. I pray that her foot gets cured before May 2,” Shah exclaimed as reported by Hindustan Times at a rally held in Swarupnagar in North 24 Parganas.

Shah remarked that CM Banerjee is completely demoralized after five rounds of polls as he believes that it is now firmly established that the BJP is way ahead of her in the race.

He criticized the TMC supremo for furthering a violent brand of politics and governance in the state. The 56-year-old asserted that the BJP believes in governing the state through the models of faith, business and development in order to set up a ‘Sonar Bangla’.
