In West Bengal, one of the country’s main fights for governance will be waged, poll analyst Prashant Kishor said on Saturday. He was referring to the assembly elections beginning March 27. He also posted the main slogan of the Trinamool Congress – “Bengal just wants its own daughter” – on Twitter. Mr. Kishor’s business, I-PAC, is advising the ruling party on how to stop the BJP, which has made substantial gains in the state thanks to its stellar general election results.
“One of the key battles FOR DEMOCRACY in India will be fought in West Bengal, and the people of Bengal are ready with their MESSAGE and determined to show the RIGHT CARD – #BanglaNijerMeyekeiChay (Bengal Only Wants its Own Daughter) PS: On 2nd May, hold me to my last tweet”. He wrote.

West Bengal elections are coming up in eight phases from March 27 to April 29, according to the Election Commission. This makes it the state’s longest election ever. On May 2, the details will be announced March 27, April 1, April 6, April 10, April 17, April 22, April 26, and April 29 are the election dates. In 2016, the state’s 6.5 crore voters cast their ballots over seven days in April and May.
The decision was made due to concerns about political violence in the state during the election, according to the Election Commission.
However, Ms. Banerjee questioned the poll body over these dates. “Bihar has 240 seats and had elections in three phases. Tamil Nadu has 234 seats and will have an election in one day. Why eight phases here? Who is benefitting…This is as per BJP requisition”. She said on Friday.
The BJP, which won 18 of the state’s 42 Lok Sabha seats which politics had centered around the rivalry between Trinamool and the Left, hopes to shape its maiden government. The electoral campaign of the party focuses on the situation of law and order, the argument of dynasty politics, and the alleged lack of progress under Ms. Banerjee-charges refuted by the Trinamool.
The central government, led by the BJP, has also recently declared several infrastructure projects to highlight its polling pitch for its double-engine government (BJP central and Bengal governments).
To address the BJP, the Trinamool has launched many schemes of its own. The party has also declared its plan to provide free coronavirus vaccines in advance of the polls.
