A day after Union home minister Amit Shah said BJP’s chief ministerial candidate for West Bengal will not be an outsider, the Trinamool Congress on Saturday released its new slogan for the upcoming Assembly elections in the state, which underlines the ‘insider-outsider’ debate. ‘Bangla Nijer Meyekei Chaye’ (Bengal wants its own daughter) — the new slogan portrays West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as the daughter of Bengal.
According to the reports, senior party leaders Derek O’Brien, Subrata Bakshi, Partha Chatterjee, and Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar were present at the unveiling of the slogan. The hoardings for the poll will once again be launched at district level events.
Polls to the 294-member West Bengal Assembly is expected to be held sometime in April-May this year. Though the Election Commission is yet to announce the dates, the polling body has begun the training of over 20,000 polling officers in the state.
