BJP national president JP Nadda reached Kolkata on Friday to join the Rath Yatra.
The BJP, which is pushing for the assembly elections in West Bengal, will start rath yatras from Saturday. The party’s national president JP Nadda reached Kolkata on Friday night for this. He will begin the first rath yatra from Navadwip in Nadia district.
The BJP will conduct 5 such rath yatras across the state. BJP has named this campaign as Parivartan Yatra. Navdwip has been chosen for its launch. It is the birthplace of 15th century saint Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Two visits may also include Home Minister Amit Shah.
Police said – public meeting is allowed, not rath yatra
The suspense for the rath yatra remained suspicious until Friday evening. The BJP has claimed approval for the march. At the same time, a senior police officer said that we have approved the public rally of JP Nadda. No permission is allowed for an event such as Rath Yatra.
Ghosh said – Rath Yatras will be game changer in Bengal
Earlier this week, the West Bengal BJP sought permission from the state government for the month-long event. There is a program of many big leaders of the party coming in it. The state government has asked the local district administration to get permission for this.
BJP state president Dilip Ghosh said that these rath yatras will prove to be game changers in West Bengal politics. This will create a wave in support of the BJP and will become the last nail in the coffin of the TMC government. This is why TMC is delaying the grant of permission.
