Bharatiya Janta Party leader Mukul Roy has arrived in Siliguri for a tour. While addressing the media in the city, Mukul Roy said that the BJP expects to win all six seats in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections of North Bengal, but not in Malda.
“Except the two seats in Malda, BJP will bag all the other seats of Darjeeling, Coochbehar, Alipurduar, Jalpaiguri, Raiganj and Balurghat in North Bengal’s Lok Sabha elections. BJP will also do well in the Panchayat elections,” Mukul Roy said.
He further stated, “BJP will not buckle under pressure or terror”. The state President of BJP, Dilip Ghosh, was also during the time and he said that the BJP aims to win at least 21 seats in the state with the Lok Sabha elections.
