New Delhi: After flagging off ‘Parivartan Yatra’ in Kerala, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday landed in Malda, West Bengal to launch BJP poll campaign in the state.

Being a BJP star campaigner and a firebrand Hindutva leader, Yogi Adityanath adds immense value to party’s campaign. His fiery speeches strike a deep chord with the voters, especially those aggrieved with TMC’s politics of appeasement.

Adityanath’s visit to Bengal comes days after BJP chief JP Nadda launched the ‘Lokkho Sonar Bangla’ (revival of Bengal’s golden days) campaign aimed at ousting the ruling TMC dispensation.

Addressing a rally in Malda, CM Yogi slammed the Mamata government for ill-governance and pinned blame on it for state backwardness despite being in rule for 10 years.

Yogi’s copter was denied permission in 2019 elections

Interestingly, even in the 2019 general elections, Adityanath’s rally in West Bengal was slated to begin from the Malda district. However, the state administration had denied permission for his chopper to land, triggering a massive political row.

Bengal is set to go to polls in 8 phases starting March 27 and ending on April 29. Last week, the Election Commission announced the dates for 8-phase election. The counting of votes will take place on May 2. The contest for the 294-seater Assembly is likely to be a bipolar battle between the BJP and TMC.
