Kolkata: Before 21st July, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to address a rally in West Bengal’s Midnapore on July 16 to underscore his message to farmers after the Centre raised the crop support prices on Wednesday.
According to sources, state BJP party already sent proposal to the centre. Modi’s visit comes just over a fortnight after the Bengal trip of BJP chief Amit Shah, who set state leaders the target of winning at least 22 of Bengal’s 42 Lok Sabha seats next year.
Sources also added that Modi will campaign about the Centre’s move to increase minimum support prices for agriculture produce. The state BJP continued that Midnapore was chosen as a venue in the wake of the party’s advances in the Panchayat polls.
Earlier speaking at a meeting in Purulia, the BJP chief Amit Shah launched an all-out attack on the two-time Chief Minister’s government and said that handle Bengal properly at first then try for Delhi.
