BJP sources said that the party is planning to hold 1000 virtual rallies here to cover every part of Bengal.
New Delhi| Union Home Minister Amit Shah will hold a virtual rally in West Bengal at 11 am today. BJP sources say that although this rally is part of the BJP’s ‘Self-reliant India’ campaign, Shah may target the Mamata Banerjee government on issues such as coronavirus disaster, Cyclone Amphan, migrant crisis and politics of violence. The rally will be broadcast live on BJP’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Shah had a virtual rally in Bihar on Sunday and Odisha on Monday.
A BJP leader from the state said, “Our party workers and lakhs of people are eagerly waiting to hear his (Shah’s) speech.” This will involve about 1000 workers. More than three lakh people will watch it live. The BJP issued a 9 point chargesheet last week on Mamata’s 9-year tenure. The party has also launched a ‘Ar Noi Mamta’ (Mamta’s rule no more) campaign on social media.
BJP sources said that the party is planning to hold 1000 virtual rallies here to cover every part of Bengal. He said that our workers have been sitting at home for the last two months. This rally will boost their morale and provide energy for the next year’s assembly elections in 294 seats of the state. In the general elections held last year in Bengal, BJP got 18 seats and the ruling Trinamool Congress got 22 seats.
Amit Shah gave a 35-minute speech at a virtual rally in Bihar. Assembly elections are due in Bihar later this year. Amit Shah said at the Odisha rally that the virtual rally that is taking place is an integral part of the BJP’s tradition. Ever since the BJP has entered politics, we have been communicating with the people and communicating the matter to the government. He had said that a distance of two yards cannot distance BJP workers from the public.
