NDA will cross 300 seats in Loksabha: Biplab

NDA will cross 300 seats in Loksabha: Biplab

Agartala, May 16 (UNI) Asserting the return of Modi government at the centre, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb today claimed that the last phase of election on May 19 would see a significant rise in the number of BJP seats that will raise the tally of NDA to more than 300.

He stated that the BJP will win at least 23 seats out of 42 in West Bengal owing to the misrule of Trinamool Congress. ' The Trinamool supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has resorted to most undemocratic attitude to the national leaders of BJP, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, that ultimately defamed India before the international community,' he stated.

“In democracy, opposition parties have been playing an important role and leaders need to have the quality to give space for the opposition but in West Bengal it is absent. The TMC workers attacked BJP’s national president Amit Shah and leaders of the party. Mamata Banerjee herself is abusing Prime Minister almost daily, which the people of Bengal do not like and which would go against TMC in the election,” Deb stated.

He further stated that Mamata Banerjee had lost her mind as she could sense her miserable defeat in the Loksabha election and the upcoming assembly election and added, “She has become frustrated as people of West Bengal are prepared to answer the Trinamool Congress.”
