Ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP’s national president arrived in Kolkata on Monday night. As per sources, they are on a two-day visit to discuss and prepare the party’s roadmap in West Bengal for the Lok Sabha elections.
On Tuesday morning, Shah and Nadda first visited a Gurudwara in North Kolkata’s Jorasanko area. Later, they both visited the famous Kalighat temple. They offered prayers there. In the afternoon, they will preside over an organisational meeting with state leaders of the BJP. Also, later in the evening, they will attend a meeting at the National Library with the social media volunteers.
Sources in the BJP said that this visit is significant. Because both leaders will attend meetings with BJP’s state leaders, in the meetings, the strategy of the party’s state wing will be formulated for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. They will also help to unite the different groups inside the party to fight in the Lok Sabha elections.
Notably, in the last few months, in several districts of West Bengal, BJP workers have staged protests against a section of State Party leaders. Workers made severe allegations of corruption against several MPs. Earlier, BJP’s National Secretary Anupam Hazra also criticised the functioning of the Party in West Bengal.
Shah last visited West Bengal in April this year. He had set a target of winning 35 Lok Sabha Seats from the state. But, this time, the results of the organisational meetings are not known yet. But, state leaders and ordinary workers are happy about this visit.
