As the BJP shifts focus to Bengal ahead of panchayat elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and BJP chief JP Nadda will campaign there.
CNN-News18 reported that the party would hold 40 big rallies across Bengal. Nadda will launch the campaign in East Medinipur, the bastion of Suvendu Adhikari. Nandigram is also located in East Medinipur, and political experts say it is significant that the BJP president will meet here.
According to the sources, Shah and PM Modi will meet in Bengal after Nadda’s visit.
It is believed by party insiders that the BJP did well in the 2019 elections due to its aggressive campaign since the 2018 panchayat elections. Bengal BJP plans to bring high-profile campaigners from January onwards to not only help with the panchayat elections, but also lay the foundation for the Lok Sabha elections of 2024.
