Its seats will reduce in also", Banerjee said at a public meeting here in support of Trinamool candidate

Urging voters not to vote for the saffron party, she said "We do not want BJP. Show the door to the party through votes. In Bengal, Trinamool should win all the 42 seats which will help it to have some control in the formation of the new government at the Centre".
