Jai Shri Ram: Amit Shah dares WB CM Mamata Banerjee to arrest him
Kolkata : Hours after his rally in West Bengal's Jadavpur was cancelled, Amit Shah held another public meeting where he said, “I am chanting Jai Shri Ram here today. If you have guts, Mamata didi, arrest me.”
During the public meeting, he explained why his public rally was cancelled by the West Bengal government at the last moment. "I was to visit three places today, but Mamata’s ji’s nephew is contesting from one of the seats so she is scared her nephew will lose, and that’s why she cancelled the permission for our rally," Amit Shah alleged.
He strengthened his attack on the Trinamool Congress chief when he said, “If we have to restore Bengal’s glory, we need to oust TMC government, which is sheltering infiltrators…”
On Monday, the BJP had attacked Mamata Banerjee by claiming that she has replaced the democracy in the state with her “dictatorship”.
The state administration denied permission for Shah’s rally last night and also withdrew its nod to the landing of Shah’s chopper in the constituency, Union minister Prakash Javadekar said.
The Bharatiya Janata Party also accused the Election Commission of being a ‘mute spectator’ to the Trinamool Congress’s alleged undemocratic means to target the saffron party.
