Posters Asking BJP to Leave Bengal at Amit Shah's Rally Venue
"This shows that the TMC is afraid of our rally tomorrow. The days of TMC are numbered in Bengal. The people of the state are waiting for good governance of the BJP," West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh said.
Bengal is not TMC's "personal property", the party has no right to make such demands, said another senior BJP leader.
"The people of the state will decide in the coming days who will stay and who will leave," he added.
The route that Shah would take to reach the venue tomorrow, however, was seen dotted with cutouts of party supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said the TMC had put up similar posters during Shah's visit to Purulia in June and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally in West Midnapore last month.
"They have done this (display of TMC hoardings) in the past too. Maybe it is their way of welcoming people to the state," Vijayvargiya said.
Chatterjee, on his part, said there was nothing wrong in putting up posters and placards of their party supremo.
