'Why was Ganguly's six famous?': Rajnath Singh's poll pitch in Bengal

Defence minister Rajnath Singh campaigned in West Bengal ahead of the Assembly elections.

Singh used a cricket analogy to predict a BJP victory in the state.

Ruling TMC is facing a double challenge from BJP and Cong-left.

"Whenever Sourav Ganguly crossed the crease, it was sure that he would hit a six.

Likewise, with your support in Lok Sabha, we have crossed the crease and surely we will hit a six in Assembly polls and form BJP government here," said Singh.

Elections to the 294-member West Bengal assembly will be held in eight phases starting from March 27 with the final round of voting taking place on April 29.

The counting of votes will take place on May 2.
