‘You're Only Making Modi Stronger’: After Prashant Kishor, Mamata Pans Congress

Mamata Banerjee, the leader of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and the chief minister of West Bengal, claimed on Saturday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will only grow in power since the Congress is not concerned about democracy. Mamata Banerjee further criticised the main rival party at the state scale for not making choices, saying that the country is struggling as a result. She made the remarks during a Trinamool Congress (TMC) event in Goa.

Mamata Banerjee's harsh criticism of the Congress arrives just days following the political expert Prashant Kishor slammed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, claiming he was presumably under the impression that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's authority will soon diminish.

Mamata Banerjee told a gathering of journalists in Panaji on the last day of her three-day tour to the coastal region, where assembly elections are scheduled for early next year, that she couldn't say more since the Congress didn't take governance professionally. Because of Congress, Narendra Modi Ji would gain more authority. Mamata Banerjee also wonders why the nation should endure because someone is unable to make a decision.

Mamata Banerjee was cited by the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency as stating that the Congress had a possibility earlier, but instead of battling the Bharatiya Janata Party, they ran against her in West Bengal.

In her Saturday address, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief appeared to deliver a notification to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), claiming that her state had had plenty of Delhi's dadagiri. She stated that Delhi ka dadagiri amka naka, which implies that they have had enough of Delhi's bullying.

She stated that her party, Trinamool Congress (TMC) supports electoral allocations for nationalist parties. The Bengal chief minister remarked that she wants provincial governments to be powerful and that they want India's federal system to be powerful, about the impending Goa polls. They must strengthen the states. Only when the states are powerful can the centre be powerful.

The Trinamool Congress (TMC), in particular, has indicated that it would run for all 40 seats in the 2019 Goa assembly polls.

Prashant Kishor, whose image as an election analyst soared when he assisted the Trinamool Congress  (TMC) keep control in West Bengal previously this year by handing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party a remarkable defeat in the state elections, is now in Goa, supporting Mamata in gaining a footing in the next elections.

Kishor declared at a personal gathering couple of days ago that the  Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would be at the forefront of Indian democracy regardless of whether they lose or draw, much like the Congress was for the first 40 years. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is stuck in a rut. They are not fading down quickly if they receive 30 per cent of the support at the national level in India.

Likewise, Kishor's election advisory business, the Indian Political Action Committee (IPAC), has started conducting surveys in Goa on behalf of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) to assist the party spread outside Bengal. Former Congress leader Luizinho Faleiro has been appointed by the Trinamool Congress (TMC) to lead the party in elections in Goa.
