Despite victory in assembly elections, winning presidential polls won't be easy for BJP: Mamata
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said that despite the BJP's recent victory in assembly elections in four states, winning the upcoming presidential polls may not be easy for the party as it doesn't have even half the total number of legislators across the country.
Asserting that the "game is not yet over", Ms Banerjee said that those who don't have even half of the total number of legislators in the country should not talk big as parties like Samajwadi Party, despite defeat in assembly polls, are stronger electorally than last time.
"The presidential elections will not that be easy for the BJP this time. They don't have even half of the total MLAs in the country. Opposition parties together have more MLAs across the nation," she said in the assembly.
