Amit Shah to launch BJP’s campaign for West Bengal municipal elections in Kolkata

Union Home Minister Amit Shah is expected to visit Kolkata today to kick off the BJP’s campaign for the municipal elections in April across West Bengal keeping in mind the Assembly polls in 2021.

At the BJP rally to be held at Shahid Minar grounds, Amit Shah will launch the BJP’s campaign song that attacks Trinamool Congress’s rule in the state.

The title of the song is “Aar Noy Onnyaye” meaning “No More Injustice”.

Interestingly, Shah has not spoken on the Delhi violence which triggered this week over the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) leaving more than 40 dead and the eyes would be on him during the rally in Kolkata.

Neither he nor the Prime Minister Narendra Modi have spoken about the violence in their public programmes so far respectively at Bhubaneswar and Prayagraj over the last two days.

Left and Congress students will hold protests against Amit Shah across the city.

The Left-backed Students’ Federation of India (SFI) will hold protests near the airport and outside a mall in south Kolkata while Congress’ Chatra Parishad will protest at Swami Vivekananda’s statue on College Street.

The opposition parties of West Bengal, the CPM and Congress, have criticized chief minister Mamata Banerjee for allowing the BJP rally at a time when political activities are restricted because of the ongoing board exams.
