West Bengal Elections: ‘Catch Us If You Can’, Derek O’Brien Tells BJP | India News

KOLKATA (West Bengal): “Catch us if you can,” Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Derek O’Brien said on Saturday in response to BJP President JP Nadda’s claim that the TMC led by the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is losing the assembly elections in West Bengal. .
Addressing the media, the TMC leader said that “Mo-Shah” (Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Minister Amit Shah) are aware of the “grim” situation of the party in the state after the first two phases of voting, and that’s why they’re playing “mind games.”
“I am amused by Mo-Shah’s mind game. Overall, in the 2019 Lok Sabha election, Trinamool had a 3% lead despite all the great talk from the tourist gang. Trinamool has built on that substantially. advantage in 2021, so watch us if you can, “he said.
“My sources in Delhi told me that Mo-Shah and the president of the BJP have reviewed the situation in Bengal and they know that the situation is grim after phase one and two. That is why they are using this mind game strategy. I work,” O’Brien added.
He added that TMC has gained a 6% advantage over other parties in ongoing polls in the state.
On BJP’s claim that Mamata Banerjee is looking for another constituency to compete as she could lose to Nandigram, O’Brien said: “We have won Nandigram. There is no other constituency and they are all BJP mind games.”
Earlier today, BJP Chairman JP Nadda claimed that TMC people had told him that Mamata Banerjee is looking for another seat to compete as she is going to lose to former ally Suvendu Adhikari in Nandigram. He also expressed confidence that the BJP would win the assembly elections in West Bengal.
