West Bengal Congress president, Pradip Bhattacharya was quoted as saying, "It is clear that BJP is keeping open the chances of a post-poll alliance with Mamata Banerjee."
"One wonders why the BJP prime ministerial candidate refrained from attacking Trinamool. He was silent on attacks on BJP workers in the state, which the state leadership claims everyday," he added.

Meanwhile, CPI(M) central committee member -- Md Selim said, "This was predictable. Modi and Mamata are complimentary to each other. Modi and other BJP leaders are aware that they will join hands after the polls."
The Gujarat CM held a huge rally in Kolkata on Wednesday, Feb 5. Surprisingly, he did not criticise his counterpart in the state as he generally does in other states wherever he holds any rally.
Modi, during his speech at the rally, said, "Support the Trinamool Congress in the state. But the BJP for the Centre. You will have ladoos in both hands."
The BJP PM candidate also added, "If you elect me at the Centre, you will have triple benefit. Mamatadi will bring you change here. I will bring you development from Delhi. And then you have Pranabda as President."
