“Yeh @BJP4Bengal hai. Yeh unki jansabha hai. Aur yahaan inki pawri ho rahi hai! (This is Bengal BJP. This is their public meeting. And they have a party going on.)” the All India Trinamool Congress tweeted sharing a picture of empty chairs at a BJP event.
Yeh @BJP4Bengal hai.

Since being shared on the Twitter, the post has received over 5,000 likes and has been retweeted over thousand times.
The jibe at the rivalry party came a day after BJP on Saturday released a music video on the tunes of the popular Italian protest folk song ‘Bella Ciao’, converting it to say “Pishi Jao” which means “Go Away Aunty.”
BJP’s take was in reference with the poll slogan launched by the TMC. Portraying chief minister Mamata Banerjee as the daughter of Bengal,TMC launched the poll slogan – Bangla Nijer Meyekei Chaye’, which translates to ‘Bengal wants its own daughter’.
The slogan was accompanied with Banerjee’s photo on the hoardings which were officially launched by the state’s ruling party across Kolkata.
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.
Meanwhile, the major political parties which mainly include TMC, BJP and Indian National Congress, are running their poll campaign in the state in full swing. The Mamata led-TMC is already engaged in a political spat with the saffron party led by Amit Shah-JP Nadda.
