Kolkata: After Mamata Banerjee’s grand anti-BJP rally in the city, Bharatiya Janata Party is planning to hold consecutive rallies across Bengal from Jan 22 to Feb 8. This rally is expected to be hosted by BJP superiors including PM Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah.

While addressing media, State BJP president Dilip Ghosh said, “Amit ji’s first rally will be held on January 22 at Malda district. On January 23, he will address two rallies in Jhargram and in Suri in Birbhum district. On January 24, we will request a union minister (probably Smriti Irani because Amit ji is not well) to address public meetings at Krishnanagar in Nadia district and Joynagar in South 24 Parganas district.”

He also said that there was a plan to hold PM Modi’s public meeting at Kolkata’s Brigade Parade Ground, but a lot of time was needed to organize such a grand rally. Therefore, the party decided to organize three separate rallies at Siliguri, Thakuraganj and Asansol on January 28, January 31 and on February 8.

Meanwhile BJP alleged that the Bengal government has denied permission to land Amit Shah’s helicopter at the Malda airstrip on January 22.

Malda administration (on January 18) claimed that due to the upgradation of the airstrip Amit Shah's chopper cannot land there. They made alternative arrangements afterwards.

Responding to the BJP’s allegations, CM Mamata Banerjee said, that permission was not given at the Malda airstrip due to security reasons. The police gave permission to land the chopper at another place (in Malda). She accused BJP of misleading people.
