I am not an outsider; have come here to campaign for BJP: Amit Shah

I am not an outsider; have come here to campaign for BJP: Amit Shah

KOLKATA: BJP national president Amit Shah has rebutted Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s charge that he is an “outsider” in West Bengal and said he has come to the state to campaign for his party. Shah wondered if he is called an outsider for coming to West Bengal, “which is very much a part of India”, then why not Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee be labelled as an “outsider” when she visits New Delhi?

The BJP leader was addressing a meet of intellectuals in the city on Tuesday.
“I am president of a national party and I am here to campaign for my party.

“I am being called an outsider for coming to West Bengal. What kind of statement is this? If a person from West Bengal goes to Mumbai or Bengaluru, will he be called an outsider? When Mamata didi goes to Delhi will she be called an outsider?” Shah asked.
Shah’s remarks came following Banerjee’s repeated allegations about Shah being an “outsider” who comes to the state to “create division” among the people.

“If the BJP wins the assembly polls in West Bengal, a Bengali will be the chief minister. Neither I nor Kailash Vijayvargia will be the CM,” Shah said.
Vijayvargiya, who hails from Madhya Pradesh, is the BJP’s national general secretary, who is in charge of the saffron party in West Bengal.
Shah also criticized a section of the media for blaming BJP workers for Tuesday’s violence during his roadshow in north Kolkata.

“A section of media is presenting it in such a way as if we started the clash. The news should be that TMC goons attacked the convoy. But a section of news organisations are trying to paint it in a different way,” Shah said.
BJP and TMC supporters Tuesday fought pitched battles on the streets of Kolkata during a massive roadshow by Shah, who escaped unhurt but was forced to cut short the jamboree and had to be escorted to safety by police. PTI
