We travelled through 6 assembly constituencies to find out how voters are doing to make their decision in #WestBengalElections2021.

The idea was to figure out which govt schemes have been effective & have reached the voters.

Here is what we found.
#Thread
West Bengal State Government’s schemes for women are effective.

The most popular schemes are all directed at women & they are responding positively. Women certainly have a good opinion about Mamata Banerjee.

But, there's a catch.
The general opinion seems to be, "Didi is fine, not her party workers."

We found multiple instances where local party workers have taken commissions on the side for people to get benefits from govt schemes.

People aren't amused. At all.

Caught a little of the #BengalClub Annual Panel Discussion on FB. Political posturing apart - irony dies a thousand deaths when the @CPIM_WESTBENGAL panellist @BikashranjanBh4 calls #AbbasSiddiqui “secular” and says the youth of #WestBengal are again turning towards the left 2/n
2/n which world do they live in and what do they think Bengali youth smoke these days. @DrAMSinghvi was, of course most balanced (with @INCIndia having no stakes in #WestBengal anymore - @adhirrcinc pls note) except for his carping on ED, CBI and farm laws but impressed by 3/n
3/n the @AITMC panellist @SantanuSenMP talking with utter conviction about the development of #WestBengal across all sectors by #TrinamoolCongress. The ever suave @DinTri repeated #NarendraModi’s reference to #SyamaPrasadMukherjee as the founder of Jan Sangh (by default BJP) 4/n

Early prediction for #WestBengalElections2021: Unless @BJP4India makes any major mistakes in cadidate selection & election is fair; #BJP hs distinct edge. Poor ground level organisation in South Bengal & complacency among boothlevel leaders are only weaknesses. @SandipGhose 1/n
Near zero resentment in BJP over 1st list of candidates. Very few late inductees found place. Only 4 candidates of Shuvendu. Almost all r free from major charges of extortion, corruption. Only 1 filmstar. #BJP shud follow example in future lists. #WestBengalElections2021 2/n

I thank the national party leadership for the responsibility given to me. I will work to make lotus bloom in Nandigram and across West Bengal. She (Mamata Banerjee) is going to lose this election (in Nandigram) by over 50,000 votes: BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari
She (Mamata Banerjee) ran away from Bhawanipore. In 2019 elections, BJP won her own booth. Bhawanipore seat will be won by BJP: BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari
