Kolkata, Sep 6, 2017: It seems like West Bengal has banned the entry of BJP and its ally RSS as first the state had denied to give permission to Mohan Bhagwat and this time the event which was scheduled to attend by Amit Shah doesn’t get the green signal.
BJP president Shah was supposed to inaugurate a party programme in Netaji Indoor Stadium, RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat was to do the honours at Mahajati Sadan to mark Sister Nivedita’s 150th birth anniversary.
But, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government ruined their plans by refusing persmission to hold the events as the state Public Works Department (PWD) informed BJP’s state unit that the statium space would not be available for the programme due to PWD work scheduled there and mentioned same for Mahajati Sadan as well.
The BJP president is visiting West Bengal between September 11 and 13. Party leaders had sought to book the stadium, which can hold 12,000 people, on September 10 or 13. On August 28, they were given a booking, and asked to come back with an NOC from Kolkata police.
Meanwhile, a section of BJP leaders said that if state PWD department was supposed to conduct repair work, they should have informed the party at the time the venues were being booked. According to them, this is just a conspiracy to not allow the BJP to conduct any political programmes.
