First Phase of West Bengal Assembly State Election 2016 80% Polling Kolkata: BJP has prepared itself strong to face Didi in West Bengal Assembly elections. It seems BJP has learnt a lesson from the lost of Delhi and Bihar. The BJP has already boosted itself much to face Trinmool Congress (TMC), according to the party workers.
It is going to be a tough battle for both the parties as TMC wants to be remain in power while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is going put its entire efforts to bring the power change in the West Bengal.
Here we brought the important highlights of the First phase of Assembly elections in the West Bengal.
“The BJP has for the first time, in West Bengal elections, shown such a dogged attitude to contest. Preparations on ground, which used to be completed only a few days before the elections, have already been completed with almost four months to spare,” said BJP West Bengal unit secretary Ritesh Tiwari.
The BJP is claiming to put its party worker in the state to work on the ground level in all the districts and assembly segments.
“This shows how seriously we are taking the West Bengal polls,” Tiwari added.
He further said that they are ready to take on Mamata Banerjee and the opportunistic alliance struck between the Congress and the Left. The alliance shows the disappointment of these parties. They are arch-enemies in Kerela and here they have joined hands.
On the other hand, On Friday, TMC Chief Mamata Banerjee hit out at the news of a possible Congress-Left electoral alliance in the state and said let the people of Bengal decide it and saying that the people of Bengal would give them a befitting reply.
West Bengal elections will be held in six phases. Today the elections will be held in the state’s Maoist-affected areas.
In the first part of phase one, 133 candidates will try their faith from Left Wing Extremism hit districts of West Midnapore, Purulia and Bankura.
Among the 18 constituencies, 13 have been classified as LWE-affected from the Election Commission where voting will end early at 4 pm due to security considerations.
In the remaining 5 constituencies of Purulia, Manbazar, Kashipur, Para and Raghunathpur voting will go on as usual time till 6 pm.
However, the TMC is highlighting that peace has returned in the Maoist-affected areas.
In the last 2011 assembly elections, which ended the 34-year-long rule of the Left, had Trinamool and Congress on the same side. The Congress, which broke its alliance later on, has forged alliance with the Left.
However, the first phase would highlight the lack of security for women in the state under the current TMC rule. It has been named ‘Nari Samman Yatra’ and will be spearmoved by TV actor Rupa Ganguly. Ganguly is best known for her role of Draupadi in te Mahabharat TV sopera and is the current president of the BJP Mahila Morcha.
The second yatra is called ‘Infosys-to-Singur Yatra’ to be organised by the BJP Yuva Morcha.
However, the Left-Congress alliance is a subject of mockery for both the BJP and the Trinamool. But, yes we need to wait for the upcoming phases and definitely final result to know the party which will form the government in West Bengal.
