Delhi violence cast shadows on Amit Shah’s visit to Kolkata

Ankur Bhattacharya ; Kolkata , 26 February: After receiving the green signal from the city police, the state BJP leaders in West Bengal are making all out efforts to turn the proposed 1 March public rally of Union Home minister Amit Shah and the party All India President J P Nadda a hugely successful even by assembling over one lakh party workers from all over the state in the rally at Shahid Minar Maidan.

Though  the sudden deterioration of law and order and break out of violence in some parts of Delhi has cast some shadow over the proposed visit of the Union Home minister next Sunday (1 March),the state BJP leadership is still very hopeful that both Shah and Nadda would come to address the party workers before the state Municipal and corporation elections, slated for April this year.

‘Yes we are very much aware of the present volatile situation in Delhi  which may require the presence of  the Union Home minister in the capital’,said a senior BJP leader this morning adding that but they were also very much hopeful that the situation in Delhi following the imposition of curfew and  prohibitory orders under 144 CRPC in the trouble torn areas, would improve to enable Shah to come to Kolkata for a day.

During his proposed one day visit to the city both Shah and Nadda apart from addressing a massive public rally at Shahid Minar Maidan, are scheduled to hold a number of important meetings with party functionaries to finalise strategies for contesting the coming Kolkata Corporation and the state Municipal elections.
