New Delhi: The poll results of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh have made West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee nervous as she knows that in 2019 Lok Sabha polls Trinamool Congress (TMC) will lose its dominance in West Bengal, BJP leader Mukul Roy said on Tuesday.

Mamata had on Monday tweeted that the verdict was a moral defeat for the BJP in Gujarat and the people of the state have "belled the cat for 2019".
