The poor people are yet to come out of the shock of note ban. Thousands of people have lost their jobs. Twelve thousand farmers have committed suicide. The hasty implementation of GST has affected traders and small businessmen badly. Modi has not said a single word on the issue and is instead making false promises before the elections.” The Trinamool Youth Congress president said BJP workers and leaders can only be seen before the elections, whereas Trinamool workers and leaders stay beside people throughout the year. “People know that Trinamool leaders and workers will always stand beside them during distress. BJP leaders are like seasonal birds, they go when the season is over,” he said. Banerjee said Trinamool candidate Arpita Ghosh, who is the sitting MP from Balurghat, will win the election by 2 lakh votes. “I can feel the pulse of the people and can assure you that Ghosh will win by 2 lakh votes,” he said, requesting voters to go to the polling stations early in the day to exercise their franchise. Balurghat will go to polls on April 23.
