Union Home Minister Amit Shah will hold organisational meeting with the West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders during his two-day visit to the state on November 5 and 6. The meetings will be held in Kolkata and Bankura, senior leaders of the party said.
Other than the top leaders, BJP leaders who are working at the grassroots level will also be present in these meetings. Shah’s visit will boost their enthusiasm and his pep talk will also help them, say BJP leaders in the state. Earlier, BJP chief JP Nadda was scheduled to be in Bengal, but his visit was cancelled, and Shah’s visit was organised in its place.
Shah will be at Andal airport – which is in West Burdwan district – on November 4. He will visit Bankura the next day (November 5) and hold an organisational meeting there with leaders of West Midnapore, East Midnapore, Birbhum, Bankura and Purulia.
He will be in Kolkata on November 6 and hold a meeting with the state leaders. It is also possible that Shah will hold a press conference in Kolkata. BJP leaders in Bengal said they will raise the issue of “worsening law and order situation in the state” before Amit Shah.
