Want to see BJP lose in the 2024 elections: Mamata Banerjee

Mamata Banerjee

After defeating BJP in the West Bengal elections Mamata Banerjee is working towards taking down the saffron party yet again in the 2024 elections.

Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday made strong statements and struck an alliance with Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) while campaigning in Kolkata to defeat BJP in the 2024 elections.

Speaking at a rally where the alliance was announced, West Bengal chief minister and TMC chief Mamata Banerjee said the alliance presented a “real alternative to the BJP”.

“I want to see the BJP lose across the country in the 2024 elections. It will be Khela Hobey (game on) again,” said Mamata Banerjee in the rally at Phoolbagan in Kolkata.

Reacting to Banerjee’s claim that BJP will be defeated in the next Lok Sabha poll, BJP state president Sukanta Majumdar said the TMC supremo should stop daydreaming about becoming the next prime minister. “She had said similar things in 2014 and in 2019 and all of us have seen the results,” he said.

“During the assembly polls, we have seen the campaign that the BJP had unleashed in the state. Everybody was afraid of it. But the people of the state defeated them. Bengal is a place of communal harmony. What Bengal thinks today, India thinks tomorrow. We will defeat the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. It will meet the same fate as it had faced in the last assembly polls,” the Trinamool Congress chief said while campaigning for December 19 Kolkata Municipal election (KMC).
