If Congress wants we can fight 2024 polls together: Mamata Banerjee after BJP's win in state polls

Kolkata:

Day after BJP’s historic win in four of the five state assembly polls, and Congress’ massive defeat, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said, “If Congress wants we all can fight (2024 general elections) together.”

Banerjee told the Congress not to be “aggressive for now” and “be positive”. She further said, “This winning (Assembly polls in 4 states) will be a big loss for BJP. This (2022 election results will decide fate of 2024 polls) is impractical.”

After the assembly polls victory, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Thursday, exuded confidence that win of UP and other assembly polls were an indication of what will happen in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

“After the 2019 polls, some political pundits had said that the 2017 poll results had decided the 2019 outcome. I think they will say that the 2022 poll verdict decided the outcome of 2024 elections,” the Prime Minister had said.

Addressing the media, the West Bengal Chief Minister also alleged “loot and malpractices of EVM” in the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls.

She said, “Samajwadi Party’s Chief Akhilesh Yadav shouldn’t be disheartened and should seek forensic tests of the same EVM machines. Akhilesh Yadav’s vote percentage increased from 20 per cent to 37 per cent this time.” 

In Uttar Pradesh, BJP has won 255 of total 403 assembly seats, while Samajwadi Party (SP) has bagged victory on 111 seats. Congress managed to get only 2 seats. 

In Uttarakhand, BJP has won 47 of 70 seats, while Congress got 19 seats. In Goa, BJP won 20  of 40 seats, while Congress managed to win 11 seats.

Of the 60 Manipur assembly seats, BJP has won on 32 while Congress got mere 5 seats.
