Union home minister Amit Shah and BJP’s national president JP Nadda will visit West Bengal every month till the Assembly elections scheduled in the state next year comes to an end. This information was revealed by West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh.
Notably, the election for the 294-seat Bengal Assembly is likely to be held in April-May.
Amit Shah, JP Nadda’s visits will strengthen Bengal BJP
Amit Shah and JP Nadda will visit West Bengal separately to strengthen the saffron party’s presence in the eastern state. They will also review the functioning of the BJP’s Bengal unit that is all charged up for the Assembly polls.
Dilip Ghosh told reporters that: “Amit Shah and J P Nadda will visit the state separately every month till the assembly elections are over. The dates are yet to be finalised. Their regular visits will energise the party workers.” Sources claimed that Nadda will visit Bengal for three consecutive days every month, whereas Shah will visit the state for two consecutive days every month.
BJP criticises Congress-CPI(M) alliance
Ghosh also took pot-shots on the Congress-CPI(M) alliance, saying that the people of Bengal have rejected both the parties.
“The people of West Bengal have given chances to the Congress, the CPI(M) and the TMC. All the three parties have failed to live up to the expectations of the masses, which will now be fulfilled by the BJP,” he said.
In a bid to attain success in Assembly polls, the BJP has divided Bengal into five organisational zones and central leaders of the party have been made the in-charges.
Senior BJP leaders Sunil Deodhar, Vinod Tawde, Dushyant Gautam, Harish Dwivedi and Vinod Sonkar have been handpicked by the party top brass to head the North Bengal, Rarh Banga (south-western districts), Nabadwip, Midnapore and Kolkata organisational zones, they said.
BJP national general secretary Dushyant Gautam, who has been given charge of the Kolkata zone, exuded confidence after arriving in the city that the saffron party will come to power in the state in the Assembly elections.
After having a limited presence in the politically polarised state for decades, the BJP has emerged as the main rival of the ruling Trinamool Congress by winning 18 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal in the 2019 general elections.
