The Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Sunday congratulated the mahagathbandhan for their comprehensive win in the Bihar Assembly elections and said that the Bharatiya Janata Party’s arrogance and ‘sickening language’ during campaigning had cost them the elections.
“Whenever the BJP loses, India wins and India is saved. As Mamata di said this morning, this is a victory for tolerance over intolerance. Their arrogance has cost them the polls. We, in the TMC, are particularly happy and Mamata di had made it clear right from the start as to whom she was supporting,” TMC national spokesperson Derek O’Brien told ANI here.
