Kolkata: Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited Shantiniketan in the Birbhum district of West Bengal on Sunday morning as part his campaign for the BJP in the run up to next year’s assembly elections.
He paid his tribute to Nobel prize winner Rabindranath Tagore during his vist to Shantiniketan.
On Saturday, Amit Shah had addressed a massive rally in the neighbouring Paschim Medinipur district during which former Trinamool Congress (TMC) minister Suvendu Adhikari and nine MLAs joined the BJP. Five of these MLAs left the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) to join the BJP.
Suvendu Adhikari vowed to defeat the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government led by West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee in the next assembly polls.
Slamming the “politics of appeasement” being practiced by Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Mamata Banerjee, Amit Shah asserted that the BJP will win more than 200 seats and form the next government in West Bengal.
