Mamata Banerjee is talking about the failures of the central government in public meetings, and she is announcing various welfare schemes for voters. On the other hand, the BJP's campaign aggression has intensified, saying, "If you want development, you need corruption, cut money culture." All the BJP leaders, including Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, have been touring Bengal and criticizing Mamata's government. In the last assembly elections (2016), the TMC won 211 out of 294 seats and the Left 79, while the BJP was limited to just 3 seats

However, the BJP, which made an exceptional comeback in the last Lok Sabha elections, won 18 MP seats and shocked Mamata. there are focused the Assembly elections by adding key TMC leaders into the party. This will make the fight between the TMC and the BJP even more interesting. On another side, Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s campaign is being carried out with the ambition of this state. Amit Shah's strategy and the strong winds of the BJP in the country have raised expectations that the BJP Flag will fly in Bengal this time.

The BJP is weakening Mamata's party day by day by joining to more number of TMC leaders. The BJP has also taken ambitiously Bengal as one of the states where elections are currently being held. The CEC is preparing will be held the elections in eight phases with a view to maintaining peace in the wake of possible riots. Speaking on the issue, CEC Sunil Arora said, "The names of political parties need not be mentioned. There are a lot of factors that affect peacekeeping. Polling was conducted in seven phases during the last elections, this time in eight phases.

The Mamata Banerjee-led TMC came to power for the second time in the 2016 elections. In the 2016 Assembly Elections TMC win 211 seats, Congress‌- Left Alliance win 77 seats, BJP wins 6 seats. Especially this time, the BJP is strong challenging Trinamool, which has twice come to power in West Bengal. The BJP is a plan to a full stop to the ten-year rule of the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress. Starting with just 4 percent of the vote in 2011 ... increased to 10 percent by the time of the 2016 Assembly elections. The BJP's aggression has further increased since it won 18 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in 2019. The Communists and the Congress, once the main parties in the state, have become nominal. Muslims make up over 27 percent of the Muslim population in Bengal. Mamata trust that all of them will vote for themselves.

The BJP, which has achieved unpredictable results in the state in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, is strategizing to create history by winning the Assembly elections. Guests like Prime Minister Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and BJP national president JP Nadda have already made extensive visits to Bengal. BJP leaders are confident that opposition to the ruling Trinamool Congress will tie their party to power. On the other hand, CM Mamata Banerjee is planning to prevent the BJP from coming to power in Bengal under any circumstances. Mamata believes that Prashant Kishore, a prominent election strategist who is serving themselves in this election, will benefit from political calculations.

West Bengal elections will have a serious impact on national politics. This election will be a challenge for Mamata Banerjee, who already Wants to grow competitively with Narendra Modi. Mamata Banerjee is going aggressive with the perseverance to ascend the Chief Minister’s pedestal for the third time. She Know, This time the main competition will be with the BJP. Now all the major leaders of the Trinamool join BJP. But the struggle is not new to Mamata. No matter how many people go, she is a brave woman who can sway with one hand.
