BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday expressed confidence that the BJP would clinch a "spectacular" victory in the upcoming West Bengal Assembly polls and come to power in that state as people there have now risen against the "misgovernance" of the Mamata Banerjee-led dispensation.

He also said that he will take part in the Parivartan Yatra in West Bengal on Sunday.

Talking to reporters here, Chouhan said, "I will reach Kolkata tonight to take part in the Parivartan rally tomorrow. I will address three public meetings there as part of it."

"The assembly poll bugle has been sounded in West Bengal. A BJP wave is prevailing there. Mamata didi is frightened and furious too," he said.

"That is why Parivartan rallies are being attacked and BJP workers have been killed. But their sacrifice won't go in vain. West Bengal has risen against Mamata didi's misgovernance, and also against goodaism, corruption and loot," Chouhan said.

The BJP is going to get spectacular success in West Bengal and form a government there, he said.
