Home minister Amit Shah
, who recently recovered after testing Covid-19 positive, is all set to resume political activities with a visit to
later this month to address BJP workers in the state, which goes to polls next year. During a meeting with senior BJP members from the state, Shah hinted about his visit to the state before the
Durga Puja festivities
to interact with party workers.
Shah and party president J P Nadda held long deliberation with its West Bengal unit members over the party’s strategy for the state assembly polls, which are expected in the first half of 2021. The home minister will most probably visit the state before Durga Puja, which begins from October 22, to speak to party members and guide them for the election campaign, state BJP president Dilip Ghosh said after the meeting.
He said the state party unit also requested Nadda to visit the state. Another state functionary, Rahul Sinha, who had expressed his disappointment after being dropped as a national secretary recently, also attended the meeting. Party sources said the state leadership was asked to highlight the benefits of three farm reform bills, against which TMC chief and CM
has launched a campaign, and also take on the state government for not implementing a number of the Centre’s welfare measures.
