Kolkata: Ahead of the much awaited Amit Shah’s address as the Yuva Swabhiman
Samavesh rally at Mayo Road on Saturday, the TMC has launched a poster war against
the saffron party. They are protesting against the ongoing NRC issue in Assam.
The TMC party has put up posters with ‘Anti-Bengal BJP Go Bacak’ written on them. These posters are all over in Mayo road where Shah is scheduled to address.
The Trinamool Congress has declared a state-wide protest against the National Register of Citizens in Assam, except in Kolkata. The BJP has labelled the protest an attempt to sabotage Mr Shah’s rally.
Earlier, some reports emerged that the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government had denied permission to the BJP to hold Mr Shah’s rally, but later Kolkata Police granted the permissions.
Mr Shah had earlier said that he would not only go to Kolkata but is even prepared to get arrested. Mr Shah had said, “It does not matter whether I get permission or not, I will definitely go to Kolkata. If the state government wants, it can arrest me.”
