Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh to hold BJP rallies separately in Darjeeling


Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh are scheduled to hold BJP rallies

separately in West Bengal’s Darjeeling and elsewhere in northern

districts of the state on Sunday.

Darjeeling, along with Balurghat and Raiganj in South Dinajpur and

North Dinajpur go to the second phase election on April 26.

Shah, the deputy of BJP’s campaign face, is expected to canvas for sitting Darjeeling MP Raju Bista, whilst his Union Cabinet colleague would address separately for Bista later on Sunday.

Darjeeling segment, comprising many communities of

Mongoloid origins and aboriginal adivasis, has been a bastion for the saffron brigade since 2009.

The majority of the voters are Gorkhas, the brave sons of India.

Shah held his last election rally on March 10 at Balurghat for

party candidates and sitting MP Sukanta Majumdar, also the state

president, and new nominee Kartik Pal for Raiganj.

Rajnath Singh is expected to hold rallies for two other

constituencies – Malda Uttar and Murshidabad.

Both these constituencies are scheduled for voting in the third phase.

In the first phase poll on April 19, Bengal witnessed 81.91 per cent

turnout among the 5.6 million voters for three Lok Sabha seats –

Cooch Behar, Alipurduar (ST) and Jalpaiguri (SC) in the northernmost districts of the state.
