Bihar Election Result 2020: How BJP’s performance may impact 2021 West Bengal assembly polls

Bihar Election Result 2020: Electoral success in Bihar, despite all odds, is likely to boost morale of the BJP cadre in West Bengal where the saffron party is preparing to take on Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress.

November 11, 2020 / 01:31 PM IST

With the outcome of the 2020 Bihar Assembly election now clear, all eyes are on the next round of polls in the country. Assam, Kerala, Union Territory of Puducherry, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal are expected to head for polls to elect new assemblies in April-May 2021.

In these states, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which powered the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) to a win in Bihar is in power only in Assam. The saffron party has not been a strong political force in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry even though it has made some efforts in the last few years.

Thus, the BJP’s focus is now on West Bengal. The party has repeatedly said that it aims to defeat Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) in the 2021 polls.

Both parties have been preparing for this contest since at least the conclusion of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
