Trinamool Congress rank and file in Bally Assembly constituency is upbeat after an opinion poll that forecasts the CPI(M) candidate from the constituency might get more votes.
Baishali Dalmiya, Trinamool Congress candidate from Bally Assembly constituency, said: “I would like to thank for telecasting the opinion poll in which it has been forecast that CPI(M) would get more votes. The reason being it motivated us to work to increase our margin.”
She said: “We are quite confident of our win. People have witnessed the project taken up by the state government in the past five years and I am quite sure that Trinamool Congress will retain the Bally Assembly seat. So there is no question of getting worried with what has been shown in the opinion poll.” Dalmiya on Tuesday held a door-to-door campaign in Ballykhal area. Hundreds of the party supporters attended the rally.
A party worker said that the Oppositions are spreading canard saying that factions of Trinamool Congress are busy fighting among themselves and so they will win. “But believe me there is nothing called faction in Trinamool Congress in Bally. Each and every leader and worker is giving their best not to win the election here but to increase the margin,” the Trinamool Congress leader said.
According to the political analysts, Bally was once known to be the red bastion but with the change of power in the state the picture has completely changed.
