Many leaders in his party had become self-satisfied says Suvendu Adhikari. BJP leader said that many of their leaders beacme overconfident that their party will at least secure 170-180 seats in the elections,but they did not do the spadework.
KOLKATA: Due to overconfidence of several leaders BJP lost the election they thought their party would get over 170 seats said by The Leader of Opposition in the Bengal Assembly and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Suvendu Adhikari on Sunday
At a party meeting in Chandipur area of Purba Medinipur district, Mr Adhikari said this antisocialism and overconfidence led to lack of understanding of the emerging ground situation.
“As we did well in the first two poll phases in these parts of assembly segments, many of our leaders became smug and overconfident. They started believing that the BJP will secure 170-180 seats in the elections, but they did not do the groundwork. This cost us dearly,” the Trinamool turncoat said.
He said continuing work at the ground level was equally important as setting up targets, which was realistic but needed hard work.
“The BJP lived in a paradise of fools, as many of their leaders assume that the saffron camp will cross 200 seats. Why he is detecting fault in others? Didn’t Suvendu also crow repeatedly that his party will get at least 180 seats ?
Mr Ghosh, the state general secretary of the Trinamool, said that they actually don’t know the pulse of Bengal, but trinamool knows.
