West Bengal is set to witness one of the most intense Assembly elections in the recent history. Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress, which has been ruling the state since 2011, is engaged in cut-throat battle with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which is pushing hard to win the state that was once a Left citadel. The high-decibel campaigning in West Bengal has seen the BJP unleashing its star team, including PM Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Yogi Adityanath, Rajnath Singh, Smriti Irani and others targeting Mamata continuously. Mamata’s old trusted aides Suvendu Adhikari, Mithun Chakraborty and several others have switched sides and are now campaigning against her as BJP members. The BJP has set a target of winning 200 seats, on the other hand TMC is confident of securing a third consecutive term. What is the mood of Bengal?
