BJP president Amit Shah who has been denied permission to hold a rally in West Bengal today, hit out at Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee saying she was terrified that the BJP was making inroads into the state. “There is a reign of terror in Bengal. Mamata Banerjee is throttling democracy,” said Amit Shah to Media.
Today’s rally from Cooch Behar was the first of three marches which were planned by the BJP to campaign in the state ahead of 2019 general elections.
“We will definitely carry out all ‘yatra‘, nobody can stop us,” Amit Shah quoted.
Calcutta High Court and a division bench agreed to government decision of denying the permission to rally as it will create a communal overhaul.
