Amit Shah on 2-day hurricane tour of Kolkata


 Union home minister Amit Shah is scheduled to make a two-day hurricane tour of West Bengal to hold the BJP’s organisational meetings, aiming to boost the karyakartas ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, party sources said here on Monday.

According to a temporary itinerary, Shah would also visit the Kalighat temple and a Gurudwara in the central part of this city on Tuesday to offer prayers, sources added.

‘Shah is expected to land at the city airport in Dumdum on Monday night and stay in a hotel in New Town.

On Tuesday, the union minister would first visit the Gurudwara around 10 am to 11 am and then go to the Kalighat temple in south Kolkata and offer prayers before returning to the hotel in New Town.

He is expected to address the BJP leadership for a couple of hours in the hotel before meeting the other party members at the National Library near the Zoo in Alipur, ‘ sources added.

The BJP’s central leadership is aiming to win at least 35 seats out of 42 in West Bengal.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha poll, the saffron brigade won 18 seats, a record in the election history of Bengal, and the ruling TMC headed by Mamata Banerjee won the lion share of 22.

Congress had only two, and the Left parties drew blank.
