He exuded confidence that the BJP will form the next government in the state with more than 200 seats. West Bengal has a 294-member assembly.
Shah’s assertions came on a day West Bengal political heavyweight Suvendu Adhikari, nine MLAs of different parties and a TMC MP joined the BJP.
“I want to say it clearly that the BJP will form the next government in the state with more than 200 seats… political violence and intimidation by the TMC won’t yield any benefit. BJP president J P Nadda’s convoy was attacked, so many our party workers have been killed,” he said.
“The more violence you (the TMC) perpetrate, the stronger the BJP will emerge,” he asserted.
Taking a swipe at the TMC over a string of desertions ahead of the assembly elections, the BJP leader said, “By the time elections arrive, Mamata Banerjee will be left alone in her party.
BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari on Saturday vowed to oust the Mamata Banerjee regime in the 2021 assembly elections in West Bengal, exuding confidence that his new party will form the next government.
Adhikari claimed that the TMC came into existence because of the saffron party.
“I had first met Amit Shah during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls… When I was down with COVID, my former party did not enquire about my health, while Amit Shah twice enquired about how I am,” he said addressing the rally.
Noting that the BJP believes in nationalism and pluralism, Adhikari alleged that the TMC wants to divide the state on the lines of “insider” and “outsider”.
“Shame on the TMC for such narrow politics,” Adhikari said as the crowd roared.
“I am being called a traitor by those who themselves (TMC) are traitors. Had the BJP not been there, TMC would have never come into existence. In the next assembly polls, BJP will win Bengal and TMC will be defeated,” he said.
