Indian Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah is coming to West Bengal on a two-day visit on Thursday. During his state visit, he is also scheduled to hold organizational meetings with BJP leaders in the state.
Amit Shah is scheduled to leave Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport for Kolkata on Thursday morning. On the first day of the visit, he will visit the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) South Bengal border. As part of this, Amit Shah will inaugurate six floating BOPs (Border Out Post) and boat ambulances in the Sundarbans waters at Hingalganj, a statement said. He will then inaugurate the Maitri Museum at Haridaspur.
Amit Shah will hold a meeting with state BJP leaders and party MPs and MLAs at a hotel in Kolkata on Friday, the BJP said.
Analysts say that in this meeting, Amit Shah will point out the way to prevent the split of the party by focusing on the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. There may be changes in the organizational position if necessary. Then he will return to Delhi.
After the West Bengal state assembly elections held in March-April 2021, Amit Shah did not return to Kolkata. Like him, the party’s all-India president JP Nadda and Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not visit here. After Amit Shah, they are also expected to come to West Bengal.
JP Naddar is scheduled to visit West Bengal in June and Narendra Modi in July to boost the BJP. Earlier, the state BJP leaders went to Delhi and appealed to Amit Shah to strengthen the party. From now on, the central leaders will have to come to West Bengal.
In the infighting, the number of BJP MLAs in the West Bengal Assembly has come down from 8 to 60. And out of 16 seats in the Lok Sabha, one has been reduced to 16.
