Gujarat result to have far reaching impact on Bengal: BJP

Bharatiya Janata Party national general secretary Kailash Vijayvergiya on Monday said the election results in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh would have a far reaching impact on the politics of West Bengal.

Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee should lament that BJP has won, said Vijayvergiya who is the party's in-charge of the state.

"Our victory in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh will have impact all over the country. It will also have far reaching impact in Bengal politics," Vijayvergiya told PTI.

Referring to Banerjee's tweet that the win is a moral defeat for the BJP, the senior saffron party said she had wanted the party to lose in Gujarat, "so instead of tweeting against the BJP, Mamata Banerjee should lament that we won the election."

West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh said Banerjee should concentrate on West Bengal instead of giving opinion on Gujarat polls.

"Our next target is Bengal. We want to free the people of Bengal from the misrule of the TMC," Ghosh said.
