In a dramatic turn of events, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Aditynath is all set to reach West Bengal today to address a public rally in Purulia at 3.30 pm. Yesterday, the Bengal government denied permission to Yogi’s chopper to land in Bengal where he was scheduled to address rallies. According to the sources, this time, Yogi Adityanath’s chopper will land in Jharkhand from where the UP CM will be taking roadway to reach Purulia.
Yesterday, the UP chief minister who was scheduled to address the "Ganatantra Bachao Rally" at Balurghat in South Dinajpur district Sunday could not attend the rally after permission was denied for his chopper to land near the venue.
"The TMC government didn't allow me to come and meet you all. That is why I had to resort to Digital India of Modi-ji to address you. This TMC government is anti-people, anti-democratic and have compromised with national security," Adityanath said while addressing the rally via the audio link. The TMC government is afraid of the BJP as it very well knows that its days in Bengal are numbered, he said.
Alleging that the TMC government had tried to stop Durga Puja in West Bengal in order to pursue its appeasement policy, Adityanath urged BJP workers to fight hard in order to ensure that the party forms the next government in the state.
"Mamata Banerjee should remember that she can not misuse the government and its agencies in the state. It is shameful that government officials are acting as TMC cadres in the state," he said.
According to news agency ANI, Mritunjay Kumar, the Information Advisor to CM Yogi Adityanath said, "Ye UP CM ki lokpriyata ka hi asar hai ki Mamata Banerjee [West Bengal CM] ne helicopter landing ka permission tak nahi diya [It is because of UP CM Yogi Adityanath's popularity that Mamata Banerjee even denied his helicopter from landing in West Bengal]."
