Shah is on a two-day visit to West Bengal beginning Saturday to boost BJP workers' morale and take stock of preparations ahead of the crucial assembly polls next year. He reached Kolkata late on Friday night. Yesterday, he addressed a rally in Midnapore where he went all guns blazing against Mamata Banerjee and the ruling TMC. He said that by the time the election comes, the Chief Minister would be left all alone in her party.
"By the time elections come, you will be left all alone...Why are so many people leaving Trinamool Congress now? Because of the misrule, corruption and nepotism of Mamata Banerjee," Shah said at his mega rally. "You gave three decades to Congress, three decades to Communists and 10 years to Mamata 'Didi'. Give just 5 years to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), we will transform Bengal into 'Sonar Bangla'," he added.
