Apart from West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam and Kerala, the results of the Assembly elections in the Union Territory of Puducherry will affect the political fortunes of national and state level leaders. The West Bengal assembly election was the largest in the second term of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. As was Uttar Pradesh in its first term.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi campaigned extensively in Bengal even during the Corona epidemic. The Chief Minister of Bengal and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee was challenged and promised a golden Bengal on the victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
In Bengal, the saffron party made the election a battle between PM Modi and CM Mamta. However, it would be a mistake to view the result as PM’s defeat. State elections are contested on local issues and the PM’s popularity remains at the national level. This is definitely a political setback for him. Especially at a time when the Center is also being criticized for managing the Corona epidemic.
Narendra Modi has shown that he can never be underestimated. However, despite the party’s victory in Assam, the overall result of these elections has left PM Modi with more and more political challenges in the coming months.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has thanked the people of West Bengal on the results of the assembly elections. PM Modi said, ‘I want to thank my sisters and brothers in West Bengal who have blessed our party. BJP’s presence in the state has increased considerably compared to earlier. BJP will continue to serve the public. PM Modi further said that I commend every activist for his enthusiastic efforts in elections.
PM Modi tweeted and congratulated the Chief Minister of West Bengal and TMC Chief Mamata Banerjee for the victory. PM Modi said in a tweet, “Congratulations to Mamta Didi for the victory in Bengal. The Center will continue to give all possible support to the West Bengal government in meeting the aspirations of the people and in the fight against the Kovid-19 epidemic. ”
