Trinamool was suffocating, BJP is better: Arjun Singh
"If my party makes me the candidate from Barrackpore, then I am very much hopeful of victory. (Trinamool candidate and sitting MP) Dinesh Tribedi is going to lose," he said, as his fans shouted "Arjun Singh zindabad", "Jai Siyaram" and frantically captured his photo and video on their mobile phones.
The four-time legislator was mobbed at the airport, and his close associates had a trying time in getting him into his car.
"My followers are my biggest resources," said a smiling Singh, who crossed over to the BJP on March 14 after Trinamool ignored him and decided to persist with former Railway Minister Trivedi as its candidate from Barrackpore.
