Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president, JP Nadda on January 09 said that ruling government in West Bengal has "criminal instinct". He said, "The ruling political party is working with criminal instinct. Corruption has been institutionalised. The point-blank attack on a protectee like me is a testament to the state of law and order to which a regular citizen is subject." He further said, "I visited four houses today; I took food grain from them and pledged that as soon as we come to the power (in West Bengal), farmers will be felicitated with 'Kisan Samman Nidhi' and make all efforts to bring them to fore in mainstream. We will also resolve their issues. I assure you that 'Ayushman Bharat' will be implemented here in letter and spirit as soon as we come to the power here. In the time to come, BJP will register their victory (in WB Assembly polls) by winning more than 200 seats."

A laser light show at Victoria Memorial portrayed the life of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose during the celebrations of his 125th birth anniversary. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar witnessed the spectacle. PM Modi is in Kolkata to celebrate 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's grandnephew and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Chandra Kumar Bose condemned West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's behaviour after she refused to speak when 'Jai Shree Ram' slogans were raised during the celebrations of 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at Victoria Memorial in Kolkata on January 23. He said, "Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose stood for unity. He had people of all communities in Azad Hind Fauj. Whether you say 'Jai Hind' or 'Jai Sri Ram', I don't find difference. 'Jai Sri Ram' isn't a statement where one should react in allergic manner. So, I think the honourable Chief Minister (Mamata Banerjee) need not have reacted adversely to a slogan whether it's 'Jai Hind' or 'Jai Shree Ram'. This is not the day to do any politics. It is a day to celebrate, it is a day to pay homage to the soldiers and martyrs of Indian National Army."
