TMC MP Derek O’Brien claims his party has taken up a challenge to dethrone Modi in 2019, gets lampooned

TMC’s Rajya Sabha MP Derek O’Brien who in the past had defamed twitter users in the upper house has now managed to get lampooned by users of the microblogging platform, Twitter. Merely days after the BJP, not only notched a historic victory in Tripura and Nagaland but also managed to stitch together an alliance in Meghalaya despite Congress being the single largest party, Derek was quoted by the ANI as saying that TMC and all other opposition parties had taken up a challenge to dethrone PM Modi in 2019:

As seen above, he is quoted as claiming that PM Modi would deliver his final Red Fort speech in 2018 and owing to the “writing on the wall” insinuated that Modi won’t be the PM for a second term in 2019. This he claimed was a challenge taken up by the TMC and all other opposition parties.

Such a statement which came merely a day after the BJP asserted its dominance in the North-Eastern politics, puzzled various twitter users considering the saffron party looks stronger than it has ever before.

Some Twitter users decided to outright accept the challenge:

A few proceeded to lampoon him for his statement:

With the communist bastion of Tripura falling on Saturday, the major state’s which continue to remain fiercely anti-BJP are Kerala, Karnataka and West Bengal. This raises the question whether TMC and others have indeed decided to step up their game to try and halt the BJP juggernaut or whether Derek’s statement is merely an effort to try and sooth the jittery nerves of the opposition.
