West Bengal elections have been a roller coaster ride so far.

On the other side, BJP had exercised all their might by having rallies by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. For BJP, other notable campaigners were Mithun Chakraborty who joined BJP just before elections, current MP and ex-cricketer Gautam Gambhir, UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath and many more.
