A war of words erupted between the TMC and the BJP on Sunday, just hours before Narendra Modi is set to be sworn in as Prime Minister for his third term.

Kolkata mayor and TMC leader Firhad Hakim predicted that the NDA coalition government would not last, while BJP's Arjun Singh suggested Hakim should focus more on his political future. Singh, defeated by TMC in West Bengal's Barrackpore, confirmed his invitation to attend Modi's swearing-in ceremony.

Echoing CM Mamata Banerjee's stance, Hakim labelled the NDA swearing-in as ''temporary.'' Banerjee stated that the INDIA bloc may not have made a claim to form the government now but might do so in the future. Post a meeting with TMC MPs and leaders, Banerjee expressed a 'wait and watch' policy, hoping the ''weak and unstable'' BJP-led NDA government would be ousted.
