In the middle of the Bihar election, the BJP had started planning its next goal Bengal. Among those in the ruling party investing in that state early is union Home Minister Amit Shah. Therefore he visited Bengal and urged the people of the state to give Narendra Modi’s leadership a chance in the 2021 assembly election and they will make ‘Sonar Bangla’ within five years. As their aim is the development of West Bengal.
After electoral victory in Bihar, BJP’s set its next stop in West Bengal where assembly polls are due next year. To take this mission ahead BJP has formed an 11-member core team of mostly central leaders to prepare the ground to mount a high-voltage attack against the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress government in the run-up to the polls.
Since In 2010, West Bengal gave reigns of the state to Mamata Banerjee. Yet 10 years down the line, their words of honour have been demonstrated to be hollow and hopes of people have turned into distress. By taking a dig at the Mamata government over issues like corruption and violence, Amit Shah said the ruling Trinamool party has been looting the funds sent by the Centre; Trinamool didn’t shy away from corruption even during coronavirus and flood relief work. Further, he added, they have made three sets of laws in the state – one for the nephew (of Mamata Banerjee), one for their vote bank, and one for the common Bengali. Even this state leads in the country when it comes to the killing of political workers. In the last one year, 100 BJP workers have been killed subsequently Amit shah asked what action has been taken for this?
As a result, BJP is drastically required for West Bengal development because BJP will bring initiative towards industrialization as it has been systematically destroyed by the Left and the Trinamool. Also, the main would be to generate employment in the state because this will help Bengali youth to remain in the state and the traditional Bengali family system won’t get destroyed due to the separation of parents and children. In addition to these, there will be an improvement in infrastructure in every area of the state, however, for now, the present situation is simply pathetic.
Also, some of the core team members landed in Kolkata to do camping there for a week to chart out a basic list of probable candidates and plan for a focused campaign strategy, with inputs from the state party unit.
Party sources said the state, which has 294 assembly constituencies, will be divided into five zones, each of which will be put under the charge of a central party secretary, who will finalize all decisions under the guidance of the central leadership.
News Agencies reported, as the ‘Battle for Bengal’ still looks a climbing task for the party, therefore BJP chief J P Nadda and home minister Amit Shah have decided to keep the command for the assembly polls under the direct charge of the central leadership rather than the state party unit which is fraught with factional feuds.
The 11-member core team includes party general secretaries Kailash Vijayvargiya and Dushyant Gautam, five-party secretaries — Sunil Deodhar, Vinod Tawade, Vinod Sonkar, Harish Dwivedi, and Arvind Menon — central IT and social media cell chief Amit Malviya and state leaders Amit Chakravarty and Kishore Burman.
While Kailash Vijayvargiya will be the coordinator, IT cell head Amit Malviya and party secretaries Sunil Deodhar and Arvind Menon, Vinod Tawde are part of the team to prepare the ground for the battle.
On Tuesday, six central leaders including Sunil Deodhar, Amit Malviya, and B L Santosh, held a strategy meeting with state leaders in Kolkata, where it was also decided that between November 18 and 20 each of the five zonal -in-charges will meet district-level leaders of their respective areas.
