Joynagar Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah claimed that people of Bengal have decided to send more than 23 BJP MPs to the Lok Sabha irrespective of whether Banerjee’s government allows them to hold meetings or not.
Shah also dared Banerjee to arrest him for chanting “Jai Shri Ram”, a week after three persons were arrested in the West Midnapore district for allegedly chanting the slogan while her convoy was passing through the area.

“I am supposed to go to three places today. I have come here at Joynagar and the permission for second rally has been cancelled because Mamata didi fears that her nephew would lose his reign if the BJP workers get united.

“People have already decided to defeat Trinammol Congress in the Lok Sabha elections, irrespective of whether you allow us to talk or hold meetings, or deny us to talk or organise rallies,” he said addressing a public meeting in Joynagar.

The people of Bengal have made up their mind to “give more than 23 Lok Sabha seats to the BJP”, he said.

Amit Shah’s scheduled rally in Baruipur on Monday was cancelled as the state government allegedly denied permission for the same.

“Mamata didi often says Jai Shri Ram cannot be chanted. I am chanting Jai Shri Ram from this stage in the Joynagar constituency and going to Kolkata from here. If you have courage, arrest me,” Shah said.

A video circulated on social media on May 4 showed the Chief Minister stepping out off her vehicle in a bid to confront a group of people chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ on her way to a public rally in Ghatal.

On seeing Banerjee’s convoy stop, the people started fleeing but she dared them to come back and alleged some of them were using abusive language against her. Subsequently, three persons were arrested from the area. It was a viral video and the content is not verified.

Mamata acts as speed breaker: Modi

The BJP chief Amit Shah also alleged that people were earlier forced to pay “tax to syndicates”, but now they have been compelled to pay “tax to her nephew”

“Mitron, do you agree with the nephew tax? Tell me, whether this tax should be abolished or not. Mamata didi wants votes of infiltrators so that she does not need to care for votes of others,” Shah said.
