Union Home Minister and top BJP leader Amit Shah arrived in Kolkata Wednesday night on a two-day visit to take stock of the party’s organization ahead of the 2021 assembly polls in West Bengal, party sources said.

This is Shah’s first visit to the state since the COVID-19 outbreak. He had last visited the state on March 1.

Today, he will be visiting the Bankura District which is a part of the Jangalmahal area. On November 6, he will be visiting the Dakhineshwar Kali Temple in the morning, followed by his scheduled visit at the residence of classical singer Ajoy Chakroborty.

In the 2019 General Election, the saffron party could only bag 18 seats out of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal.

With the increasing strength of BJP in the state of West Bengal since the last few years, the BJP leaders are in anticipating of ending the 10-year-long-ruling streak of the Trinamool Congress.
