As a confident-looking Union home minister Amit Shah held a rally in Kharagpur, a vindicated and emboldened BJP says Mamata’s drama has flopped
Bengaluru: With just days left for the all-important Bengal elections, Union home minister Amit Shah arrived in Bengal for a two-day visit.
He held a roadshow in Kharagpur.
As peer an Outlook report, the road show, which commenced at the local BJP office, ''Premhari Bhavan'', and concluded at Malancha petrol pump in the town, covered a distance of nearly one kilometre.
The website adds that Shah was accompanied by BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya and party state president Dilip Ghosh.
Thousands of supporters took part in the rally, which began after sundown, as residents stood on balconies and rooftops to witness the show.
An enthusiastic Amit Shah did not miss out on an opportunity to wave at the supporters who had lined up in thousands.
He was flanked by party candidate for Kharagpur Sadar constituency Hiran Chatterjee, who is also a film star.
As he held a roadshow, Shah exuded confidence that the BJP would storm to power with more than 200 seats.
He said, “With over 200 seats, BJP is going to form the government in West Bengal under PM Modi's leadership. Indeed, people of West Bengal want a change”.
EC says no evidence over Mamata’s attack:
Earlier today, the Election Commission dismissed theories that chief minister Mamata Banerjee was attacked in Nandigram, hours after filing her nominations.
The EC, based its decisions, based on reports filed by poll observers. It held that the evidence was sketchy and nothing beyond an unfortunate accident.
The BJP, which had held the accident claims, to be nothing beyond drams now feels vindicated.
Quite naturally, a vindicated and emboldened BJP added that her drama has flopped.
"Her drama will not go on for long. People know what she did for the last 10 tears and what she is doing now. The drama that she was doing for sympathy has flopped now. Time will tell what will happen to Mamata in future," Vijayvargiya told news agency ANI.
