And already West BengalIt is known that the political heat has reached its peak. State Chief Minister and ruling Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee is setting fire to the BJP.
Attempts are being made to woo the voters once again by announcing various welfare schemes while drying up the failures of the central government. On the other hand, the BJP’s campaign aggression has intensified, saying, “If you want development … get rid of corruption and cut money culture.” Leading BJP leaders, including Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, have been touring Bengal to criticize Mamata’s government. In the last assembly elections (2016), the TMC won 211 out of 294 seats and the Left 79, while the BJP was limited to just 3 seats.

Speaking on the issue, CEC Sunil Arora said, “The names of political parties need not be mentioned. There are a lot of factors that affect peacekeeping. “Polling was conducted in seven tranches during the last elections, but this time in eight tranches, the conduct of elections is not a big deal.
