Bharatiya Janata Party national president JP Nadda arrived in Kolkata on Wednesday (December 9) to a rousing welcome. Scores of party workers gathered at the airport here to receive Nadda who is on a two-day visit to the poll-bound state. 

During his stay here, Nadda will review the preparations of the party for the April-May 2021 Assembly elections and launch a door-to-door campaign. He will also participate in various programmes aimed at strengthening the party organisation.

Apart from inaugurating the party's election office, Nadda will open party offices in nine districts during his two-day trip to West Bengal. Nadda will also participate in the party's various community-wise outreach programmes under the 'Aar Noi Anyay' (no more injustice) campaign, which is part of the BJP's strategy to counter the alleged hegemony and gunda raj of the ruling TMC in the state.

Nadda, along with senior party leaders such as national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, and vice-president Mukul Roy, will interact with state leadership at a closed-door meeting at ICCR.

On Thursday (December 10), he will be visiting Diamond Harbour Lok Sabha constituency, which is the bastion of local MP and 
Banerjee's nephew, Abhishek.
