Soumik Karmakar, Kolkata: Leaders in West Bengal are struggling to meet a mass outreach target set by party chief Amit Shah ahead of the panchayat elections even as the party grapples with infighting and lack of coordination among the state BJP members.
A section of the BJP’s central leadership believes that the party is making steady inroads into the Trinamool Congress-ruled Bengal, once a bastion of the Left Front, but owing to several reasons its state unit has not been able to capitalise on the wave fully.
According to BJP sources, Central BJP leaders are actually waiting for the right time. So, curiosity has touched the sky among the political think-tanks.
The sources also asserted that Central BJP leaders wanted to bring it public with a press-meet. Central committee also scuffled the state BJP brigade and gave some important role to some top leaders of the Bengal BJP.
