BJP National President Amit Shah rejected Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's allegation that she is 'outsider' to West Bengal and said that she would come to the state to campaign for her party. Shah surprised that he would be called externally to come to West Bengal, which is a "part of India", then when Mamata Banerjee comes to Delhi then why should not she be called 'outsider'? The BJP leader was addressing the meeting of intellectuals in the city on Tuesday. Shah said, "I am the president of a national party and have come here to spread my party."
He said, "I am being called externally to come to West Bengal. What kind of statement is this? If a person from West Bengal goes to Mumbai or Bengaluru then will he be called an outsider? When Mamata didi go to Delhi, should she say externally? "It is important that Banerjee repeatedly alleged that Shah is an outsider who comes to create 'division' among the people in the state. After this Shah has made this comment.
Shah said, "If the BJP wins assembly elections in West Bengal, then a Bengali will be the chief minister. Neither I nor Kailash will be the Vijayvargiya chief. "Vijayvargiy is a resident of Madhya Pradesh and is the party's national general secretary. He is in charge of party matters in Bengal. Shah also criticized a section of the media responsible for the BJP workers responsible for the violence during Tuesday's roadshow in north Kolkata.
The BJP chief said, "A section of the media is presenting it in a way that as we started the struggle. The news should be that TMC goons attacked the convoy. But a section of news organizations is trying to portray it differently. "During the road show of Shah on Tuesday, the workers of the BJP and Trinamool Congress clashed with each other.
