BJP general secretary and state BJP central in-charge Kailash Vijayvargiya has indicated that the BJP will contest the 2021 assembly elections in West Bengal without any face and win the election by a two-thirds majority.

Mr. Vijayvargiya questioned the question of journalists in Indore that BJP's defeat in Delhi Assembly elections is also being linked to the fact that it did not declare the face of the Chief Minister's post against Kejriwal. On this, the BJP general secretary said: It is all a matter of discussion. We have also formed our governments in the states where the Chief Minister's post was not announced during the assembly elections. We have formed our governments in Haryana and Tripura.

Commenting on the proposed assembly elections in 2021, Mr. Vijayvargiya claimed: We will form our government in West Bengal elections without a face (of the Chief Minister's post) and will form a government with a majority of two-thirds. BJP General Secretary said: Whether or not we have any face declared for the post of Chief Minister in the Assembly elections, it is a different matter, but we will definitely brainstorm how to strengthen the BJP organization in Delhi.

Taking a dig at the declared free schemes of the Shri Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party government after the BJP's debacle in the Delhi Assembly elections, Mr. Vijayvargiya said: (In the Delhi Assembly elections) the issue was free (schemes). Only Kejriwal will tell that from where did the development issue come in the elections? The announcements of free schemes in Delhi, especially during the last six months, have had an impact on these elections. He said that BJP has performed very well this time as compared to the previous Assembly elections in Delhi, while the Congress has been wiped out.
