Political analysts' opinions on the growing political violence in West Bengal during the election phase and the contest between the Trinamool Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party here are very clear. BJP will perform well in the eyes of analysts.

As the assembly elections in West Bengal are getting closer, the political enthusiasts have got up there. The incidents of violence and attacks in the state before the elections are pointing to the fact that the road to elections there is not easy. 

However, when it comes to political analysts, they consider the political motive behind these incidents of violence. Let us tell you that the incidents of attack on local level to national level leaders in West Bengal have come out. The convoy of BJP National President JP Nadda was attacked during the Kolkata round in December last year. Several leaders were injured in this, including party general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya. 

After this, a few days ago, the Minister of State was attacked with a bomb. After this, the President of BJP was also attacked two days ago in West Bengal. On Monday, PM Narendra Modi himself is going to West Bengal.

Political analysts are of the opinion that there is a direct and tough contest between the BJP and the ruling Trinamool Congress party in the West Bengal elections. These experts also say that the electoral history here is very long. 

This time too it seems quite difficult to have elections in a peaceful manner. However, they also say that this time elections will see less violence than before. Senior journalist and political analyst Pradeep Singh, who keeps an eye on the politics of West Bengal, believes that the BJP has entered this election with full force. 

The BJP has moved forward on the issue of nationalism here. Also, the front which the party has opened against the politics of appeasement of Mamta government in the state will definitely benefit.

On trying to intimidate the voters of the opposition parties in the election, Pradeep Singh says that now people are tired of this kind of politics. Now they will exit. BJP will benefit from this. At the same time, the Shivaji government also believes that the ruling parties in West Bengal have won the elections by threatening their opponents in a similar way. 

This time people are watching it very closely. In Shivaji's opinion, the kind of language that Mamta uses, the educated people there do not consider it right. The BJP is very aggressive on Mamta in this election and at the same time her presence is more visible than ever, which can benefit her.

Pradeep Singh also says that the BJP appears to be very successful in telling people that Mamta does not think of Hindus. At the same time, the incident of Mamta opposing the slogan of Jai Shri Ram has served to prove it somewhere. 

After this, here it has become a slogan of opposition to Mamta. As far as Mamata's manner is concerned in this election, it is the same as before but the BJP is in a role to answer her. The party can also get the benefit of having a government at the center. He also says that the way the Left and TMC used to do electoral violence earlier this time will not happen. 

It has started in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. This time the state police will be of little use in the assembly elections. Therefore TMC will not be able to take advantage of violence this time for its victory. However, they also believe that this election is not going to be free of violence.

Both Shivaji and Pradeep maintain a consensus that removing Mamata from power is not easy for the BJP. But it is too early to say anything about this. It will decide on how people vote in elections. At the same time, the distribution of Muslim votes will depend a lot on this too. In the eyes of both the experts,

Mamta not only holds great stature in politics but is also a grounded leader. Despite this, ten years of strong voice against the government and allegations of corruption on them are still fresh in the minds of the people. BJP can benefit from this.
