Kolkata, 15 January: The Bharatiya Janta Partyโ€™s West Bengal unit president Dilip Ghosh, national vice president Mukul Roy and Bengal in-charge and national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya have been summoned to Delhi by the central leadership to formulate a strategy regarding WB upcoming assembly elections.

Actually, the assembly elections in West Bengal may be a little earlier this time. Central Election Deputy Commissioner Sudeep Jain has already held a meeting with all the administrative officials of the state a day earlier and has indicated that this time the notification of assembly elections will be issued in the middle of February and the entire counting process will be completed by the end of April. That is, a new government can be formed before May.

After the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP has been steadily growing in the state, with the goal of forming a government this time. The leaders, ministers, MLAs, MPs of Mamta Banerjee’s party are constantly holding on to the BJP, which is an indication that change may happen this time.

Realizing this, the central leadership of the BJP has summoned the top leaders of the state BJP to Delhi to chalk out an infallible strategy to gain power in the state.

BJP sources have said that Union Home Minister Amit Shah or BJP President JP Nadda can hold an organizational meeting with these leaders. It will discuss about the current state of the party in Bengal and possible flaws.

13 central leaders report also discussed

The special thing is that on the direction of Amit Shah, 13 central leaders in West Bengal have been appointed as observers to conduct a ground survey and ensure the organization’s strength in Bengal. It also includes Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya.

The central leaders who have been given charge in Bengal are all from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) background. That is, they are not only meeting with BJP workers in Bengal but are also working with the Sangh and other allied organizations to ensure the party’s acceptance among the people of Bengal on the ground.

However, the ground reality of Bengal is that even though the Trinamool Congress is in government, organizations like Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Hindu Jagran Manch are associated not only with the Trinamool but also with the Congress and the CPI (M). It is obvious that if the script of the change is written this time, the Sangh’s role in it will be bigger. Therefore, the current situation will also be discussed in detail in Delhi.


A strategy will be made on the implementation of the Citizenship Act

BJP sources have told that Thakurnagar of Nadia district will hold a public meeting among the refugee “Matua” community of Bangladesh on the next 30th. BJP MP from here, Shantanu Thakur, had been angry for a few days because the community has not yet got citizenship despite the passage of the Citizenship Act.

The Matua community, second largest Scheduled Caste population in WB, has political dominance in 65 to 70 assembly seats with the population of 3 crore in the state. The people of Matua community vote but are not permanent citizens.

Shantanu Thakur’s displeasure was overcome on the condition that Amit Shah would announce the citizenship of the community during his visit.

It is reported that a meeting with Vijayvargiya, Dilip and Mukul Roy in Delhi will also be strategized as to how to take proactive steps to implement the Citizenship Act in Bengal and grant citizenship to this community.
