Poll strategist Prashant Kishore has vowed to quit Twitter if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) crosses double digits in the 2021 West Bengal Assembly elections. Prashant Kishor, however, asserted that the BJP will struggle to do so in the upcoming West Bengal polls.
Prashant Kishor’s remarks saying the BJP will struggle to cross even double digits in the West Bengal Assembly election came two days after Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah said he has set “200 out of 294 seats” target for the party’s West Bengal wing ahead of polls in 2021.
In a tweet, Prashant Kishor said, “For all the hype AMPLIFIED by a section of supportive media, in reality, BJP will struggle to CROSS DOUBLE DIGITS in #WestBengal. PS: Please save this tweet and if BJP does any better I must quit this space!”
Earlier, BJP national vice-president Mukul Roy claimed TMC will not get even 100 seats out of the total 294 in the West Bengal assembly polls in 2021.
Capping months of speculations, Trinamool Congress heavyweight Suvendu Adhikari on Saturday joined the BJP and vowed to oust the Mamata Banerjee regime in the 2021 West Bengal Assembly election.
