Mamata is on the back foot: Bengal BJP chief

Taking at dig at Chief Minister and Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee, the BJP on Saturday said she was gathering “people from all over the country” after realising her inability to take on the saffron party.

“In the coming Lok Sabha polls, BJP is posing a big challenge to all other parties and everybody understands it,” said state 

Leaders of 23 political parties including former H.D. Deve Gowda, chief ministers of Karnataka, and – H.D. Kumaraswamy, and respectively – addressed the rally.

The Trinamool, on the other hand, said the BJP was unnerved as it was becoming clear the coming elections will be fought on the development plank and not on any Hindu-Muslim issue.

“In West Bengal, the polls will be fought on the development plank, not on any Hindu-Muslim issue. In fact, apart from development, there will be no other issue in the poll,” said 

“This is what has made the BJP afraid,” he added.

The BJP, traditionally weak in West Bengal, has been making a determined bid to throw a serious challenge to the Trinamool as part of its focus on the eastern states to boost its Lok Sabha tally.
