Kolkata, Aug 7 (IANS) The West Bengal unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday launched a membership drive in the state to woo more number of supporters ahead of the high-voltage Assembly elections in the state scheduled in 2021.
The membership campaign titled “Amar Poribar, BJP Poribar” (My Family, BJP family) was launched by the party’s state unit President Dilip Ghosh. The BJP introduced a toll-free mobile number, as a part of its membership campaign in the state.
“The state’s ruling Trinamool Congress has called the BJP a party of outsiders. Such allegations are completely baseless. I want to ask them is Syama Prasad Mukherjee an outsider,” Ghosh said.
He said the Trinamool Congress is playing the tricks deliberately to divert attention from its sins, but the tactics won’t save them from sinking.
The BJP state President said that hundreds of Trinamool supporters have already joined the BJP in Bengal to put up a strong fight against the Mamata Banerjee-led state government.
Meanwhile, BJP’s national President J.P. Nadda also urged the people of West Bengal to join the saffron camp and help it overthrow the ‘anti-people’ Trinamool dispensation. In a video message, Nadda also accused the state government of mishandling the Covid-19 situation in Bengal.
