Amit Shah denied permission to hold Jadavpur rally and land his chopper in Mamata’s West Bengal

In January this year too, in her attempt to restrain the BJP president from carrying through his rally scheduled in West Bengal's Malda district, she had blocked Amit Shah's chopper from landing and had denied permission for the rally.

BJP President Amit Shah’ rally in West Bengal’s Jadavpur area, in the run-up to the last phase of Lok Sabha elections, stood cancelled, as he was denied permission to hold the rally.

Furthermore, Amit Shah was also denied permission to land his chopper in West Bengal.

Mamata Banerjee, jittery of losing her grip on her state has been resorting to such dirty tricks earlier too. In January this year, in her attempt to restrain the BJP president from carrying through his rally scheduled in West Bengal’s Malda district, she had blocked Amit Shah’s chopper landing in the Malda Airport. She turned to a flimsy excuse as the Airport being under construction to bar Amit Shah.

Moreover, the begrudging Trinamool goons who operate freely under Mamata’s protection had on January 29 vandalised several vehicles used for Amit Shah’s rally in East Midnapore.

Public properties, private bikes and buses were in flames as violence enraged. After the incident, BJP blamed the ruling TMC in West Bengal and held the party responsible for the attack.

Soon after Shah left the spot, supporters of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Trinamool Congress (TMC) had clashed with each other. The two sides pelted stones at each other and the Rapid Action Force (RAF) had to be called in to control the situation.

Mamata, wary of her opponents, had earlier denied permission to BJP to carry out their proposed ‘rath yatra’, which the party had planned to flag from Cooch Behar on December 7 2018, citing threats of ‘communal disharmony’ in the state.

In yet another attempt to impede political rallies of Bharatiya Janta Party in West Bengal, Trinamool Congress-led government of the state had denied permission to UP CM Yogi Aditiynath’s rally in February.

Mamata Banerjee’s government had denied permission to BJP leaders Shahnawaz Hussain and Shivraj Singh Chouhan to hold rallies in her state too. Recently, Mamata Banerjee had lied that the PM did not call her after Cyclone Fani. The lie was busted by the PMO when they had revealed that the PMO had tried to get in touch with her twice on behalf of the PM but Mamata had never returned the call. The TMC government had also declined to hold a review meeting with the PM over the relief and reconstruction works after Cyclone Fani.
