Bharatiya Janata Party leader Suvendu Adhikari who is contesting against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that Bengal will turn into Kashmir if Trinamool Congress (TMC) comes into power again.
Addressing a public meeting in Behala yesterday, Adhikari said, “If Shyama Prasad Mukherjee was not there, this country would have been an Islamic country and we would be living in Bangladesh. If they (TMC) came back to power, West Bengal will become Kashmir.”
“I will work to make lotus bloom in Nandigram and across West Bengal. Mamata Banerjee is going to lose this election in Nandigram by over 50,000 votes,” added Adhikari.
West Bengal Assembly elections will be held in eight phases starting from March 27 with the final round of voting taking place on April 29. The counting of votes in the state will take place on May 2.
