On the occasion, Matigara-Naxalbari MLA and BJP Siliguri Organizational District President Anandamoy Barman stated that the party is positive in setting a record and winning the election with a large margin as the MLAs and MPs of assembly constituencies where elections are being held belong to BJP.
Taking a jibe at the state government, Barman further added that the BJP's organization has become even stronger in rural areas. "During the 11 years of Trinamool rule, the 'mafia' and 'goon
raj' were encouraged. People will respond to Trinamool's atrocities with a change," he claimed.
