UP CM finally reaces Mamata’s home turf, addresses rally. He storms into Mamata’s home turf, calls Kolkata top cop ‘corrupt’
The BJP said Adityanath’s proposed rally in Bankura was cancelled as TMC govt was “dilly-dallying” on giving permission for the landing of his helicopter
Adityanath had to address the rallies in Raigunj and Balurgh over telephone.
However, his Purulia rally will take place as per schedule, BJP’s West Bengal chief Dilip Ghosh had said
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath finally reaches Purulia to address a Bharatiya Janata Party rally in Mamata Banerjee’s home turf West Bengal. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s administration denied landing permissions to Yogi Adityanath and a number of other BJP leaders including Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Shahnawaz Hussain.
Earlier, Adityanath addressed a ‘Gantantra Bachao’ rally in South Dinajpur through an audio link. “Mamata ji must accept that one should not misuse the administration in a democracy. The manner in which the administration in West Bengal is functioning should not be acceptable at all,” Adityanath said.
The Tuesday rally comes on the backdrop of a massive political showdown between Mamata Banerjee and CBI. Banerjee sat on a ‘Save the Constitution’ dharna after the CBI attempted to arrest Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar in the Saradha chit fund case. The attempt was foiled by the state police. In a setback to Banerjee, the Supreme Court, on Tuesday, said that Kumar must make himself available to the central investigation agency.
