In West Bengal, assembly elections are just a few months away. The BJP is emerging as a bigger force in the Assembly elections than in the last one. While the BJP is leading in demolishing Mamata Banerjee’s fort in Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is once again claiming victory. However, even before the elections, Mamata Banerjee has started fearing for the Bihar Assembly elections. Indeed, Mamata Banerjee has sharply accused the BJP of AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi. The Chief Minister has alleged that the BJP is distributing minority votes by giving money to AIMIM.
Addressing a public meeting in Jalpaiguri, Bengal, Banerjee said, “She (BJP) has arrested a party from Hyderabad (AIMIM) to divide the votes of minorities.” The BJP gives them money and they work to distribute votes. This has also been seen in the Bihar elections. In addition, Mamata Banerjee called the BJP the biggest thief. He said that there is no bigger thief than BJP. They are the bandits of Chambal. He said in the 2014, 2016 and 2019 elections that seven tea gardens would be reopened and the central government would take possession of them. They are now promising jobs. They are cheating. ”
Owaisi has spoiled the grand alliance’s ‘game’ in Bihar
In fact, as Mamata Banerjee pointed out in the Bihar elections, Owaisi’s party spoiled the grand coalition game. The grand alliance candidates in the border region suffered a major setback through AIIMIM. The party had fielded candidates for 16 seats in Seemanchal Pradesh. Out of them he won five seats. The party won Amour, Kochadham, Jokihat, Bayasi and Bahadurganj seats. Apart from this, many seats of Kosi and Mithila were also affected. Due to Owaisi’s party, the grand coalition lost many seats.
A.I.I.M. Tighten up for elections
Even before the West Bengal elections, Asaduddin Owaisi’s party had tightened its grip. The party has decided to put its electoral machinery in the state. Asim Waqar, party spokesperson and convener of the Bengal Party, recently said that Owaisi would soon reach West Bengal. We are going to contest elections in West Bengal. The party’s state election committee will be formed soon. Owaisi is expected to tour Bengal and announce to the party’s election committee how many seats the party will contest in Bengal.
27% Muslim population in Bengal
Minority votes are in large numbers in West Bengal. These votes can succeed in reversing the trend of any election. According to a survey conducted by BJP’s organization and election strategist Prashant Kishor’s i-pack, Muslims make up 0.1 per cent of West Bengal’s population and 44 assembly constituencies in the state, according to the 2011 census. Minority populations are large in districts like Murshidabad, Malda and North Dinajpur in West Bengal.
