“BJP will come to power in 2021 polls with more than 200 seats”: J P Nadda

News Desk: BJP President J P Nadda arrived on a two-day visit at West Bengal. On his arrival at Kolkata’s BJP office he was shown black flags by TMC activists who voiced slogans against Farm Bills. He accused the ruling TMC party of ‘minority appeasement’ and criticised them for their ‘dynastic politics’. He also claimed that the saffron party will come to power in 2021 polls with more than 200 seats ousting the TMC “lock, stock and barrel”.

Nadda after inaugurating nine party offices across various districts of the state said “Today, I want to recollect what Shyama Prasad Mukherjee had said about discipline and tolerance…it is very pertinent in the present situation in Bengal. For West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee….thy name is intolerance” 

Nadda added “One activist died even today. I have performed tarpan of over 100 BJP activists who have died due to political violence. 

We need to take Bengal in the path of progress and development. The BJP will come to power in 2021 polls with more than 200 seats ousting the TMC lock stock and barrel”

Nadda also criticized the Mamata government on grounds of religion. He said “When the entire country was watching the ‘Bhoomi Pujan’, Mamata Banerjee imposed a lockdown in West Bengal on August 5 to prevent people from being part of the occasion at the local level. 

In sharp contrast, the lockdown was withdrawn for Bakr-Eid, on July 31. This shows that the state government’s policies are driven by appeasement politics” 

BJP organised a ‘Samajik Samuha Meeting’ with people from the slum communities in Kolkata. Nadda went out for a door-to-door campaign in Kalighat locality, close to Banerjee’s home, as a part of the massive public outreach, the party has planned in the run-up to the state assembly election.

He will visit residences on the Girish Mukherjee Road, considered Ms. Banerjee’s backyard in Kalighat, during the ”Griha Sampark Abhiyan” as part of the BJP’s ”Aar Noi Annay” campaign.

At Kalighat Temple he chaired a closed-door meeting of state BJP leaders National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya and Vice President Mukul Roy to chalk out the poll strategies.
