There are only a few months left for the assembly elections in West Bengal. BJP appears to be emerging as a bigger force in the assembly elections than in previous elections. While the BJP is in the forefront of demolishing Mamta Banerjee’s fort in Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata is claiming to win once again. However, just before the election, Mamata Banerjee has started to fear the Bihar Assembly elections. Actually, Mamata Banerjee has severely accused the BJP of AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi. The Chief Minister alleges that BJP is distributing minority votes by giving money to AIMIM.
Addressing a public meeting held in Jalpaiguri, Bengal, Mamta Banerjee said, “He (BJP) has apprehended a party from Hyderabad (AIMIM) to divide the votes of minorities.” BJP gives them money and they work to distribute votes. This has also been seen in the Bihar elections. ”Moreover, Mamata Banerjee described the BJP as the biggest thief. He said, “There is no greater thief than BJP. They are the dacoits of Chambal. He said in the 2014, 2016 and 2019 elections that seven tea gardens would be reopened and the central government would take over from them. They are now promising jobs. They are cheating. ”
Owaisi has spoiled the ‘game’ of Grand Alliance in Bihar
In fact, in the Bihar election that Mamata Banerjee has pointed out, Owaisi’s party spoiled the game of grand alliance. AIMIM gave a big blow to the candidates of the grand alliance in Seemanchal region. The party fielded candidates for 16 seats in Seemanchal region. Of this, it won five seats. The party had won Amour, Kochadham, Jokihat, Bayasi and Bahadurganj seats. Apart from this, many seats in Kosi and Mithila were also impacted. Due to Owaisi’s party, the Grand Alliance had lost many seats.
AIMIM tightens up for elections
Just before the West Bengal elections, Asaduddin Owaisi’s party tightened its grip. The party has decided to put its electoral machinery in the state. Party spokesman and Bengal party convenor Aseem Waqar recently said that Owaisi is expected to arrive in West Bengal soon. We are going to contest elections in West Bengal. The party’s state election committee will be formed soon. It is expected that Owaisi will announce the party’s election committee on its Bengal tour and how many seats the party will contest in Bengal.
