Prashant Kishor on WB's 'bipolar' election, says 'it will be hard for the BJP to cross 99-100 seats'

On Wednesday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's political analyst and 'political assistant' Prashant Kishor said that the BJP underperformed Amit Shah's high claims in the state elections.

Kishor admitted in an exclusive interview with Navika Kumar, Group Editor - Politics, Times Group, that BJP has emerged as the only contestant for Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal, but added that it would be difficult for the party to cross the 99-100 seat mark in the state.

Kishor admitted that the TMC government is anti-incumbency, but expressed confidence that the citizens of West Bengal are voting for 'Didi.' He also said that while it is 'nice to be politically ambitious,' everyone leaving the party is a setback and that voters will determine whether Mamata Banerjee or Suvendu Adhikari was right.
