West Bengal Polls: Amit Shah To Address Rallies In Jhargram And Bankura Today
During his rally at Kharagpur yesterday, Amit Shah expressed confidence of scoring at least 200 out of 294 seats in the upcoming legislative elections
Union Home Minister Amit Shah will address public rallies in Jhargram and Bankura today on the second day of his election campaign in West Bengal. Both the districts have a sizeable tribal population that had supported the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during the Lok Sabha polls. Shah arrived in Kolkata yesterday after which he flew straight to Kharagpur in West Midnapore district in a chopper for a massive event. During his speech, he expressed confidence over the BJP’s victory in the upcoming legislative polls. He announced that his party will win at least 200 of the 294 seats in the Vidhan Sabha. Bengali actor Hironmoy Chattopadhyay will be fielding from Kharagpur this year.
Meanwhile, WB Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee participated in a march in her wheelchair yesterday, from her residence in Kalighat to the Mahatma Gandhi statue at Mayo Road crossing. Accusing the BJP of attacking democracy across the nation, she warned her rivals that a wounded tiger is more dangerous than a dead one. She was injured in Nandigram last week after she was allegedly targeted and beaten on her leg by some unidentified men.
The CM had tweeted earlier that though she is in pain and has been advised rest by her doctors, she will continue to fight for the pain of her followers. She further wrote that she is ready to suffer more, but will not bow down to cowardice.
