In a bid to corner the ruling Trinamool Congress this poll season, the West Bengal unit of BJP has shared a video claiming to feature TMC MP Nusrat Jahan.
Nusrat appears to be agitated in the video. In the video – shared through West Bengal BJP Twitter handle – a woman can be heard saying: “I have been at the rally for over an hour. I don’t do this even for the Chief Minister. Are you kidding?”
“TMC MP Nusrat Jahan ” I can’t do rally for more than 1 hour, I don’t even do it for CM” #MamataLosingNandigram,” tweeted BJP Bengal.
