Kolkata. Political agitation has also intensified over Durga Puja in West Bengal. BJP President JP Nadda is scheduled to visit Siliguri, the largest city in North Bengal, on 19 October (Monday). He has several programs from where he will directly attack Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. This Bengal tour of the BJP national president is considered very important through Durga Puja. He is also visiting North Bengal, which remains the new stronghold of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
In fact, in the Lok Sabha elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party has won all the seats of North Bengal with a spectacular majority. Now municipal elections are to be held in the entire state in the month of December and after that the assembly elections will be held by the end of May next year. This time the Bharatiya Janata Party is moving ahead with the goal of regaining state power and Mamata Banerjee is well aware that the Bharatiya Janata Party will get a large number of votes from North Bengal. Therefore, CM has visited North Bengal thrice and has directed to speed up development works there. The CM has openly appealed to the local residents that the leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party are outsiders and they are coming only to take votes. Overall, after the humiliating defeat in the Lok Sabha elections, Mamata Banerjee is trying to break her party once again in North Bengal. In such a situation, Nadda’s visit to North Bengal becomes very important.
It is learned that JP Nadda will not only meet there during his visit on Monday but will also meet representatives of the Gorkha community, the main tribe of Siliguri region. This community is against Mamata Banerjee and there has been agitation here for centuries on the demand of separate Gorkhaland. Apart from this, Nadda’s meeting with representatives of Namasudra and other tribes is also proposed. Therefore, it is certain that the BJP president’s Siliguri tour is not only important for the organizational strength of the party, but will also prove to be a milestone to make the path of the upcoming assembly elections more smooth. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a puja pandal in Kolkata on 22 October. During this time he will also inaugurate the pandal of Durga Puja. In view of this, this visit to Nadda before the Prime Minister’s virtual rally is definitely important.
However, when Nadda attacks Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, there will also be a retaliation from the Trinamool and after that the Prime Minister’s virtual program of Pooja Pandal will definitely increase political agitation in Bengal. The festival of Durga Puja seems to be an election arena ahead of next year’s assembly elections in West Bengal. Mamta Banerjee has already inaugurated hundreds of Durga Puja pandals online in all districts. She is also going to inaugurate Pandals online and offline. Meanwhile, BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya has alleged that Mamata Banerjee is calling a shooter from Bangladesh. They are getting BJP workers killed. Vijayvargiya said that he has evidence that Mamta Banerjee has called for a shooter from Bangladesh to assassinate party workers. The BJP claims that more than 130 of its activists have been killed. Meanwhile, all eyes are on Nadda’s Bengal tour.
