CM Yogi In Malda In Today To Kick Off BJP’s West Bengal Campaign
The UP CM will be in the Malda constituency that has 12 assembly seats, to address a public rally and participate in the BJP’s ongoing Parivartan Rath Yatra
The inflow of heavyweight Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders continues in West Bengal with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visiting the poll-bound state’s Malda district today. He will address a public meeting, following which he is scheduled to participate in one of the Parivartan Rath Yatra roadshows.
There are 12 Vidhan Sabha seats from this constituency, voting for which will take place in the last two phases of the eight-part polling. The saffron party’s star campaigner is expected to talk about various issues raised by the BJP, including the CAA implementation, illegal immigrants and political violence in the Mamata Banerjee ruled state.
The BJP has risen from being an inconsequential party in 2013 to changing the political landscape of Bengal after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, where it gained 18 out of 42 seats in the House. In the upcoming legislative assembly elections, slated to commence from 27 March, the centre-ruling outfit is looking at winning at least 200 of the 294 seats. However, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) is not stepping back either in pulling every string possible to secure its third term. The WB CM declared at a recent event that defeating her is not an easily achievable feat, while adding that she will win 221 seats against her rivals.
