• Congratulations to the people. I salute them. This is a miracle result.

• Our vote has increased. In May, we had won by a margin of 1,47,000 votes. As of now our margin is 1,72,000 votes.
• Section of the media launched a smear campaign against us. Despite the propaganda, people have spoken.
• One has to work in the grassroots for people, instead of just big talk on TV studios.
• Trinamool Congress is intact and strong party. We are together. We are a united family… They have bowled all the controversies out.
