Mamata claims BJP tally will not cross 100
West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee expressed solidarity with army veterans conveying outrage over alleged use of armed forces for political purposes and asked the BJP leadership not to build their identity riding on the sacrifices and achievements of the soldiers.
She said unlike Prime Minister Narendra Modi, she does not ask for votes in the name of the soldiers. Banerjee, an important leader of the anti-BJP bloc, claimed that it will be difficult for the BJP to cross 100 seats in the ongoing Lok Sabha election.
Addressing a poll rally here for the Darjeeling Lok Sabha constituency, Banerjee claimed that "regional parties have become important, we will together form the government."
