Domjur, West Bengal:
Union Home Minister Amit Shah today said that the BJP is confident of winning at least 63 to 68 seats in the first three phases of elections held in West Bengal so far.
Polling has been completed in 91 of the 294 assembly constituencies in the state, which will see five more phases of elections.
“The Bharatiya Janata Party estimates that it will surely win 63 to 68 seats in the first three phases of elections and gain a huge lead over the Trinamool Congress, Communists and the Congress,” Amit Shah said.
The BJP will also gain leads in the rest of the phases and cross the target of winning 200 seats, he told reporters after having lunch at a local BJP supporter’s modest home in Domjur in Bengal’s Howrah district.
