"I actually wanted this kind of response to my roadshow and this indicates that people have been turning towards us and they have hit the streets as they are politically conscious," he said.

Bhattacharjee, who gave autographs, received bouquets, shook hands with voters and waved at the crowd, denied reports that he had been "forced" to remain confined to his own constituency.
