As Bengal becomes Modi-fied, Mamata Banerjee becomes the first to claim ‘moral victory’

The 2019 Lok Sabha election mandate shows that Bengal citizens are resolute to shun the atrocities under Mamata's regime.

Narendra Modi is set for the second term as the Prime Minister as BJP is seen crossing the majority mark. The opposition has been crushed by the saffron wave. With a thumping victory in mostly all states, BJP makes successful inroads in West Bengal by leading in 19 seats while TMC leads on 22.

Amidst this soaring victory of Modi-led NDA government, West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee is the first to claim a ‘moral victory’.

Mamata, who has been extremely critical of Modi government, took to Twitter to assure the trailing candidates that all ‘losers are not losers’.

Though BJP alone is leading in over 300 seats, Mamata, amusingly still displaying optimism asks the opposition to be patient and let the counting process be completed fully and the VVPATs matched.

Incidentally, Congress’ mouthpiece National Herald had also claimed a ‘moral victory’ and conceded its defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections even before the counting of votes had even started. Against the backdrop of all exit polls claiming that PM Modi will again serve as the Prime Minister, the National Herald today said that even if Modi wins the elections, he will emerge ‘weaker’ and ‘diminished’.

Meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee has always been spewing venom at the Prime Minister on several occasions challenged PM Modi over demonetisation, jobs and economy. Moreover, she had been harbouring dreams of becoming the Prime Minister of the country. However, now her own state is under siege.

The rising popularity of BJP amongst the people of West Bengal, which began last year during the panchayat polls, and kept burgeoning this election season, had left Mamata’s brigade completely baffled. While the TMC chief had left no stone unturned in disparaging the Prime Minister, her goons have been busy discharging their savagery at BJP workers in Bengal. BJP workers have been brutally assaulted and killed and their houses have been torched in the recent past. Despite these blatant efforts, a jump from 2 to 19 for the BJP in five years is a huge achievement.

The BJP, which could not make major inroads in Bengal in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections had in these last five years been instrumental in changing the outlook of people of West Bengal. The 2019 Lok Sabha election mandate shows that Bengal citizens are resolute to shun the atrocities under Mamata’s regime and are ready and willing to accept the Modi government.
