She questioned Amit Shah’s claim just a day after the elections were held. The TMC chief said why 26 out of 30, did he leave the rest for Congress and CPI-M?

“A leader today said that the BJP will win 26 of 30 seats, why did he not claim all 30, did he leave the rest for Congress and CPI-M?” Mamata quipped, addressing a rally here in the Chandipur constituency, adjacent to Nandigram, from where she is contesting.

Asserting that she will not predict anything, the CM said that it is the people’s verdict which will be evident after counting.

“Since 84 per cent votes were polled, I can surmise that people have voted for us,” she said.

TMC Rajya Sabha MP Derek O’Brien also said in a tweet shortly after Shah’s press meet in Delhi, “Mind games won’t work, Mo-Sha” (a referrence to Modi-Shah).” “Try your seat prediction stunts at the Gujarat Gymkhana. This is Bengal. #KhelaHobe,” said Brien.

Shah on Sunday exuded confidence that his party will win 26 out of the 30 West Bengal seats and more than 37 of the 47 Assam seats which went to polls in the first phase of assembly elections in these states on Saturday.

With Nandigram going to the polls in the second phase on 1 April, along with 29 other seats, Mamata asked TMC polling agents not to leave the polling booths at any cost.

She said that she will have her eyes on her party’s polling agents, warning them that she would know in case anyone works against the party or accepts bribes from the opposition.

“I would not have said such things elsewhere, but here we are faced with traitors,” she said.

The TMC supremo has often referred to the Adhikari family, without naming them, as “traitors” after party heavyweights Suvendu, his father Sisir and another brother Soumendu left the party to join the saffron party fold.

Mamata also claimed that a leader from Hyderabad has come to divide the minority votes in Bengal, she wanted to know his whereabouts during communal riots in Delhi and Gujarat.

Later, Mamata returned to Nandigram and attended a Dol programme at Reyapara.

The CM has announced that she would be staying for the next one year in Nandigram as she is contesting from there. She also said that she would stay in Nandigram in the next five days until the second phase poll is ended.
