AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi has created a situation of snake-snatch for Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is preparing a strategy of fighting from BJP and Left-Congress front in West Bengal. Owaisi has proposed to contest the elections together, which will increase Mamata's difficulty both accepting and not accepting. That is why there is silence in Trinamool over Owaisi's proposal.
Owaisi wants to fight elections with Mamata to defeat BJP
Owaisi had just thrown the dice in front of the Trinamool, prompting victory in five of the Bihar assembly seats adjacent to West Bengal. He had said that he wants to contest elections with Mamata to defeat the BJP. It can be called a dice because before any announcement there, Owaisi wants to lay the groundwork for himself.
Minority influence over four dozen seats in West Bengal
Keep in mind that there are more than four dozen seats in the 294-seat West Bengal assembly where minority Muslim voters are dominant. Although Mamata has been accused of doing minority politics, but due to increasing political pressure from BJP, she has moved towards soft Hindutva in the last few years, while Owaisi is a minority leader with a hard line. This was a major reason for his victory in Bihar. This is why Owaisi's party had a large number of votes in some seats in Bihar, despite the Mahagathbandhan being the only alliance against the NDA.
If Mamta goes with Owaisi, BJP will attack, if not then Owaisi will get a chance
In such a situation, the problem for Mamata is that if she goes with Owaisi, who is a fanatic politician, then the BJP will get a bigger chance to attack. If the hands falter, Owaisi will get a chance to play freely on the ground.
Owaisi is eyeing North Bengal
It should also be noted that Owaisi's focus is mainly on North Bengal and this is the area where the BJP performed very well in the Lok Sabha as well. It is said that this is the reason why there is still silence in the Trinamool Congress, which has been denouncing Owaisi as an outsider and confusing leader till a few days ago.
It is difficult for Mamta to have a stake with any party
Anyway, it has been very difficult for Mamata to have a stake with any party, having ruled the West Bengal unilaterally for a decade.
Mamta will be more troubled by Left-Congress front
This problem will increase further because the front of Left-Congress will also be ready in which every class has its leader. While many Trinamool veterans have left together and many are standing in line.
