Amit Shah starts countdown in Bengal

Addressing a massive public rally in Burdwan, West Bengal, BJP national president Amit Shah listed numerous achievements of the Narendra Modi Government at the Centre, clearly sending signals that his party is going to form the next Government in West Bengal.

He said, “For 10 years, the UPA Government couldn’t control inflation. The BJP Government did it in seven months,” crediting Prime Minister Narendra Modi with ending a “policy paralysis” at the Centre.

Shah addressed a public rally in Burdwan, keeping his promise that he will frequent West Bengal in the run-up to municipal elections later this year and the Assembly elections in 2016.

“Now there are elections in Delhi. After that there is Bihar and Bengal and we’re going to form a Government in Bengal too,” Shah said, asking crowds to cheer louder because “Mamata must hear.”

Amit Shah landed in West Bengal this afternoon amid buzz that four Ministers in the Mamata Banerjee’s Government, may join the BJP. Rachpal Singh, Rabi Ranjan Chatterjee, Krishnendu Choudhury and Sadhan Pande of the Trinamool Congress are said to be in talks to join the BJP. The names of some others are also doing the rounds. One, Manjul Krishna Thakur, had joined the BJP last week.

Dinesh Trivedi, a Trinamool MP and former Railway Minister is also reportedly said to join the BJP. “I won’t predict anything but I want to change the DNA of Indian politics – and for that, I will do whatever it takes,” Trivedi told TV channel, while praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The BJP had so far been a small player in the State, but has made it clear that the party is seriously building its base in the State after posting its best performance yet in the General Elections last year.
