Kolkata: BJP's Rahul Sinha on Wednesday exuded confidence that Mamata Banerjee led All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) government will fall within a period of one year.
"I think Vidhan Sabha elections will be held within six months to one year in West Bengal. The current government will not be able to continue until 2021. There is a lot of dissatisfaction in TMC. The TMC government running with the help of police and CID," he said.
This statement from Sinha came just a day after three MLAs (two from TMC) and 50-60 Councillors joined BJP in presence of party's National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya.
Sinha also said that TMC is fanning violence across the state after suffering heavy loss in West Bengal during recently concluded Lok Sabha polls. "TMC is spreading violence across the state. People who have worked for the BJP in Lok Sabha are facing violence. If TMC had won the Lok Sabha then there would have been bloodshed in the state. People have averted bloodshed by not voting for the TMC. After BJP's win, the hooliganism has been reduced in the state."
In the Lok Sabha 2019, the BJP bagged 18 seats out of total 42 seats in West Bengal while the TMC only managed to get 22.
Besides, the BJP also did well in Mamata Banerjee's assembly constituency, Bhawanipore.
