I thank people of #BolpurSantiniketan & accept their wish & verdict in all humility. BJP polled nearly 95000, having brought the margin of difference of 2016 down from 50,000 to about 22,000, this push forward, in a month, is in itself satisfying, my gratitude to our karyakartas!
I have been deeply moved by people's affection & support. Decades of struggle in #WestBengal from BJS to BJP, has resulted in the BJP emerging as the principle opposition party in the Legislative Assembly, this is a major step which will define Bengal's politics from now onwards.
My commitment to & faith in PM Modi's vision of #SonarBangla remains undiminished, I shall continue to work for #WestBengal's present & future, remain vigilant & responsive to her needs & aspirations. The party which has won must not prop itself up on fear & intimidation.

Some leftwing & Congress dimwits on SM have been, since morning, trying to "educate" me on #VeerSavarkar. Just for the record, the revolutionary nationalist phase was my special area of research in the past, my great great grandfather Srijukta Upendranath Bandyopadhay
one of the leading revolutionaries of the early phase-Agniyug- was a close colleague of Sri Aurobindo, was arrested along with him in the then famous Alipore Bomb Case.He stood trial for a year & was sentenced to deportation to the #CellularJail in Andamans with Barin Ghose et al
Upendranath spent a decade in 'Kala Pani' at the same time as #VeerSavarkar. His memoirs of life as an exile-Nirbasiter Atmakatha-eventually became a classic in Bengali literature. #VeerSavarkar immortalized it & Upendranath by quoting from his book in his own magnum opus
