“Mamata Didi is scared. She is losing Nandigram”: JP Nadda

News Desk: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief JP Nadda on Wednesday claimed that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was scared as she is losing the Nandigram seat to BJP candidate Suvendu Adhikari. Addressing a rally in poll-bound Bengal’s Hooghly, JP Nadda said that ‘Mamata didi is scared’ because she is set to lose the Nandigram seat.

“Mamata Didi is scared. She is losing Nandigram. Suvendu did not come to Nandigram, Mamata Banerjee did and now she will lose here a well,” JP Nadda told the poll rally.

The Nandigram Assembly seat is witnessing the most keenly-watched contest in the ongoing West Bengal Assembly Election 2021 as Bengal CM and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee is contesting against her protege-turned rival Suvendu Adhikari.

The campaign for the Nandigram seat ended on Tuesday as the polling is set to be conducted on April 1.

Addressing the rally in Hooghly, the BJP chief attacked the TMC government for law and order condition in the state.

“West Bengal is number one in terms of the kidnapping of women, attempt to murder and unsolved missing cases. Two tribal girls were raped in Jalpaiguri but no action was taken. What have the people raising slogan of ‘Ma, Mati, Manush’ done for women?” JP Nadda said.

Nadda also raised an objection to the Mamata Banerjee-led government imposing a curfew during the Ram Temple foundation stone ceremony.

“Curfew was imposed in Bengal when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was laying the foundation stone of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. Should we let it continue? Should a grand temple of Lord Ram be made in Ayodhya or not? We should give a befitting reply to TMC in polls,” he said.

The BJP chief alleged that the TMC has changed its tune on Hindu rituals after the public decided its ouster.

“I saw TMC workers celebrating Saraswati Puja very enthusiastically this year. Where were you in the last four years? Now, Mamata Ji is performing ‘Chandi path’. Why didn’t you do it earlier? She is doing it now because people have decided that her departure is certain,” JP Nadda said.

The West Bengal Assembly Election is being conducted in eight phases. The first phase of voting was held on March 27. The next phase is on April 1. The polls in the state will conclude on April 29. The result is expected on May 2.

JP Nadda said that it is now a one-sided election in Nandigram as Suvendu will win for sure.

“It has been decided, Suvendu will win. It is a one-sided election. Meet me after the elections and keep a note of what I am saying. Mamata has lost. The people of Nandigram have decided, they will choose Suvendu Adhikari,” JP Nadda said.

The BJP chief reiterated that his party will win over 200 seats in the Bengal polls.

“We will cross the 200 seat mark. See the crowds here. These people have come forward and are eager to defeat Mamata Banerjee. They are sending a message against extortion and cut money and are eager to bring in a sonar Bangla,” he said.

Talking about the letter allegedly written by Dilip Ghosh to him, BJP chief JP Nadda said that the letter was fake and was being circulated by the TMC.

“These are being spread by the TMC and its brigade as they know the BJP has won 26 of 30 seats” Nadda said.

The letter, viral on social media, says that the BJP is performing badly in the Bengal polls.
