In one of the fiercest poll speech, BJP president Amit Shah took down West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee during a much-anticipated public rally in Malda district on Tuesday. Addressing a huge public gathering, Shah tore into Banerjee over issues ranging from ‘syndicate tax’ to intruders. Shah exhorted the public to uproot the “corrupt Trinamool Congress government.” He alleged that the Trinamool government was murdering democracy in Bengal.
The rally, marred by controversies after his helicopter was denied landing, is considered as the BJP's official launch of campaigning in West Bengal for the coming Lok Sabha polls. The BJP is making all-out efforts to make inroads into West Bengal, which is the stronghold of Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress (TMC).
Earlier, the rally of the BJP president in Malda was scheduled to be held on January 20. However, due to his illness, it was deferred by two days to January 22. On Monday, a controversy erupted after the BJP accused the West Bengal government of now allowing to land a helicopter carrying Shah at an airstrip in Malda.
Here are the highlights of the rally:
