BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Sunday claimed with confidence that his party will definitely form the next government in West Bengal. According to Vijayvargiya, the initial trends from postal ballots were not the real indicator of the final outcome.
“We will cross the magic figure by evening. I am sure that we will form the next government in Bengal,” the BJP’s Bengal minder, said. The saffron party, which had managed to secure just three seats in the last assembly elections, is making good progress, he added.
Early trends in Bengal vote counts till 12:00 pm showed that the ruling TMC was surging ahead of challenger BJP, leading in 206 seats. The saffron party was ahead in just 83 seats. Meanwhile, Vijayvargiya made a wild comment, stating, “The TMC goons had terrorised the voters who used the postal ballot option… We had a feeling that our party would not do well in postal ballots. However, the BJP is making good progress.”
