Union Home Minister Amit Shah will arrive on a three-day visit to Bengal on May 5, in an apparent bid to boost the morale of the party leaders, and put a check on the internal squabbles of the state BJP.
Home Minister Amit Shah will embark on a three-day visit to West Bengal from May 5 to formulate strategies for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and put a check on the internal squabbles of the state BJP.
This will be the Home Minister’s first visit to the state after the state elections took place last year.
Amit Shah will reach Kolkata on the night of May 5. He will first go to Hingalganj in the North 24 Parganas district to attend a function organised by the BSF. He will also take stock of the preparations by BSF on the India-Bangladesh border.
The Home Minister will reach Siliguri in the afternoon where he will address a public rally. Later he will hold a meeting with party workers.
On May 6, Amit Shah will attend the program of BSF at the Three Bigha Corridor in Cooch Behar. In the afternoon, the Home Minister will reach Kolkata and hold a meeting with party MLAs and top state BJP leaders.
According to BJP sources, after winning the Assembly elections in four states, including Uttar Pradesh, the morale of the party workers in Bengal has increased. However, it needs to be strengthened further.
Lok Sabha elections are scheduled to be held in two years. In the last Lok Sabha elections, the BJP had won an unexpected 18 seats in Bengal, but Mamata Banerjee‘s bumper victory in the Assembly elections a year ago has given a jolt to the BJP. (india today)
