Union home minister Amit Shah has claimed that BJP will win more than 50 out of 60 seats that went to the polls in the first two phases of the West Bengal Assembly polls.
Addressing a campaign rally in Sitalkuchi on Friday, Shah also asserted that the state’s chief minister Mamata Banerjee is herself losing from Nandigram, where she was pitted against BJP's Suvendu Adhikari.
"(In the first two phases), lotus has bloomed. Remember my words. BJP has won more than 50 out of 60 seats. Didi, it is your time to go. Now, you have no hope. Didi is herself losing from Nandigram,” said Shah.
After the first phase on March 27, the ex-BJP national president had predicted that BJP is bagging 26 out of 30 seats.
The voter turnout for the seats that went to the polls in the first and second phases was 84.63% and 86.11%. The polling for the remaining phases will take place on April 6, April 10, April 17, April 22, April 26 and April 29. The counting of votes shall take place on May 2.
