Shared on Saturday evening, the video has garnered over 22,000 views. The slogan song was launched hours after new hoardings of TMC’s slogan “Bangla nijer meye chay” were put up across Kolkata, with some also showing national icons.
Earlier yesterday, BJP also challenged the Bengal CM to announce that she will contest the coming state election only from Nandigram if she is confident of her victory, prompting TMC to hit back and ask the saffron party to first name its chief ministerial candidate.
BJP national general secretary and Bengal minder Kailash Vijayvargiya in a tweet asked Banerjee to announce whether she will be fighting only from Nandigram. However, the Trinamool Congress was quick to hit back saying it wondered why BJP is scared of declaring its Nandigram candidate or its chief ministerial face.
On January 18 during a public rally, CM Mamata Banerjee announced that she would contest election from Nandigram, however, moments later she said she will contest from Nandigram and Bhawanipore both.
