Election strategist Prashant Kishor on Monday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will struggle to cross double digits in West Bengal.
Kishor, who has been roped in by the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government for West Bengal 2021 Assembly Elections, in a tweet said, “For all the hype AMPLIFIED by a section of supportive media, in reality BJP will struggle to CROSS DOUBLE DIGITS in #WestBengal.”
“If BJP does any better I must quit this space.” Kishor added.
Kishor’s tweet came a day after Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s concluded his two-day visit in the state.
The Home Minister promised to turn the state into Sonar Bangla.
“Give one chance to Narendra Modi. We will make ‘Sonar Bangla’ in five years,” Shah said.
He also claimed that his party would form the next government.
Addressing a roadshow in Bolpur in Birbhum district, Shah said, “I’ve never seen a roadshow like this in my entire life. It shows the love and trust the people of Bengal are showering on PM Modi and the hatred they have for Mamata Didi and TMC.”
“The change that is going to take place in Bengal is for it’s development and will take it ahead. The change is going to stop infiltration from Bangladesh and to stop political killings,” he said.
