Earlier in the day, BJP President Amit Shah accused the TMC of using violence to remain in power in West Bengal, adding that the party will not remain in power for long. “If Trinamool Congress thinks that through violence they can continue to remain in power in Bengal, then I would like to challenge them that the sacrifice of our workers will not go in vain and their govt will not last long,” he said while addressing a public meeting in West Bengal’s Purulia.
