While attending the program, Shah invoked the legacy of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, claiming that the great freedom fighter is still loved by compatriots as much as he was during the freedom struggle.
The Union Home Minister attended the “Shauryanjali Program” and paid tribute to the Bengal icons at the National Library and motivated the young people to read about the life of Netaji.

The BJP, which has proven to be the main challenger to the Trinamool Congress led by Mamata Banerjee in the upcoming West Bengal elections, is sparing no effort to turn the situation around. From the vehement attack on Banerjee and his nephew Abhishek Banerjee to the deployment of senior leaders, including trade union ministers in Bengal, the BJP has stepped up its election campaign to capture the state it has never ruled.
Shah, who launched his visit on February 18, has vowed to uproot the “union raj” from the ruling TMC. The BJP leader on Thursday announced the final stop of his party’s Poribrton yatra ‘, addressed a mega campaign rally in Kakdwip in southern Parganas, visited the home of a migrant family and had lunch with d ‘other party leaders. He then visited Gangasagar and Aurobindo Bhawan in Kolkata and paid homage to Aurobindo Ghosh.
Interestingly, this was the first time that Shah and the Trinamool supremo addressed rallies in the South 24 Parganas district on the same day. Banerjee was with his nephew Abhishek in Pailan in the south of 24 Parganas.
Shah called on people to vote for the BJP and “uproot the Raj union from the TMC” to pave the way for Sonar Bangla (prosperous Bengal) after the next elections, scheduled for April-May.
Signaling the “Parivartan Yatra” of Kakdwip’s saffron party, Shah said, “Our goal is not simply to inaugurate a BJP government after defeating the Mamata Banerjee regime. This is the fight of the BJP to make the Bengal Sonar Bangla. This fight is between our workers stand and the TMC union – it is a fight to end the raj union.
“You (the people) vote for the BJP. Leave the illegal immigrants alone, not even a bird across the border will be allowed into the state.”
