In a meeting on Wednesday (November 18), West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said Union Home Minister Amit Shah and party national president J P Nadda will visit the state every month till the end of assembly polls.

Dilip Ghosh said, “Amit Shah is likely to visit the state for two consecutive days a month and JP Nadda for three days. The dates are yet to be finalised. Their regular visits will energise the party workers.”

With an eye on the elections, the BJP on Tuesday (November 17) divided the state into five organisational zones and put central leaders in charge of them.

According to party sources, 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.

Dilip Ghosh also said, “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.”

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.
