It has taken 68-long years for the BJP to establish a political base in its founder Syama Prasad Mookerjee’s home state, West Bengal. Mookerjee had walked out of the Congress and quit Jawaharlal Nehru’s cabinet to launch the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, the BJP’s predecessor, in 1951.

Now that the BJP has won 18 of Bengal’s 42 Lok Sabha seats, party leaders claim there is no looking back. Their eyes are now set on winning the 2021 assembly polls. They have already set a target of 250 seats for the party (they have six MLAs currently) in the 294-member assembly.
