Two Rallies in West Bengal, Amit Shan


Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister, is scheduled to hold two rallies in West Bengal on February 12 in support of the three-tier panchayat system. He will be speaking at Suri in the Birbhum district and then at Arambagh. According to state BJP sources, Shah will arrive in Kolkata on the evening of February 11.

“He will be staying at a hotel in Kolkata that night. On February 12 morning, he will be first attending a meeting with senior state BJP leaders in Kolkata. From there, he will first go to Suri in Birbhum district and attend the first rally there at around 11.30 a.m. After that, he will attend the second rally at Arambagh in Hooghly district at around 2.30 p.m. He will fly back to New Delhi that evening only,” said a member of the BJP’s state committee in West Bengal.

Explaining the rationale for selecting Suri, he stated that the incarceration of the Birbhum district president of the Trinamul Congress for his purported involvement in the multi-crore cattle smuggling scandal has led to a decline in the party’s organizational structure in the district.

“At the same time, the internal feud within the ruling party is maximum in Birbhum currently,” the state committee member said.
