West Bengal represents the BJP’s final frontier but the party heavyweights are up against a gutsy street fighter in Mamata Banerjee. The elections have become a volatile mix of horse trading and power games and, to paraphrase the TMC slogan, the game is on. The final score will have a major impact on national politics.
Senior Advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for West Bengal, said the matter is in the ambit of the concurrent list, where both the Centre and the State can legislate. The State law cannot be rendered repugnant to the Centre’s law, until and unless it is in conflict with the same.
