Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is scheduled to hold a rally in Malda district in the poll-bound state of West Bengal today. The area will be a significant epicentre for the polls as BJP has been continuously raising the issue of illegal cow smuggling, infiltrations and lawlessness during the elections.
Reports suggest that Yogi Adityanath will be holding at least a dozen rallies in West Bengal before the elections. After the announcement of the dates of the State Assembly polls, Adityanath is the first among the BJP big names to campaign in Bengal, even before JP Nadda and Amit Shah. Both Shah and Nadda have been campaigning heavily in the poll-bound state determined to uproot the 10-years reign of the Trinamool Congress.
UP CM Yogi Adityanath is expected to give a speech while highlighting the achievements of the Bharatiya Janata Party and what the party has done in Uttar Pradesh as well as the Centre. According to reports, he might also bring up the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya and try to woo Hindu voters of the state, especially from minority-dominated areas. Issues like corruption, love jihad and migrant workers are also expected to be raised.
Previously, during the 2019 general elections, Adityanath’s rally in Bengal was also slated to begin from the Malda district. Unfortunately, the West Benga administration didn’t give the permit to Yogi’s chopper for landing.
West Bengal Polls will be held in 8 phases and begin on March 27. The results will be declared on May 2. Bengal will see a high-tension and intensifying battle for power between BJP and Mamata Banerjee’s TMC/ However, the CPI(M) team up with ISF and Congress.
