The BJP is desperate to make in- roads in West Bengal and the party aims to win as many as 23 Lok Sabha seats in the state.
Against an aspirational BJP, TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is determined to thwart BJP’s ambition . At a election rally ,he said that in every state, alliances have been formed to oust Modi; once he is voted out of power, all of us can work together to build a new India.
