पांच राज्यों का चुनावी शाखनाद

भाजपा को सबसे ज्यादा उम्मीद पश्चिम बंगाल से है। ध्रुवीकरण और सत्ता विरोधी लहर के सहारे भाजपा बंगाल सागर पार करने में जुटी है। उधर, विपक्ष को पता है कि जिस तरह नरेंद्र मोदी की अगुवाई में भाजपा का प्रदर्शन रहा है यदि वैसा ही रहा तो विपक्ष के लिए मुसीबतें और बढ़ जायेंगी। वहीं कांग्रेस और विपक्ष का अपना आकलन है कि वह तमिलनाडु, केरल, असम और पुडुचेरी में सरकार बनाने के रेस में है और अगर ममता भाजपा को बंगाल में रोकने में सफल हो गई तो यह भाजपा के पतन की शुरुआत हो सकती है।
