Forming Government In West Bengal Would Be BJP's Ultimate Achievement: Amit Shah

Beware of anti-BJP propaganda on social media spread by the Congress says Amit Shah

Gujarat BJP organises social media workshop in view of upcoming Assembly polls

"The human rights' champions who speak on every incident must also report what is happening in Birbhum and Barasat [in Kolkata]", Shah said.

"There can never be development of the state with such acts of violence", Shah said, reminding that the TMC leadership too had to fight the entrenched violence of the Left earlier in the state.

The BJP chief said development can not take place in the state under such circumstances and urged human rights organisations to report political violence against BJP workers in the state.

Trinamool Congress leader and State's Education Minister Partha Chatterjee was quick to refute the allegations levelled by the BJP president, which touched on non-utilisation of funds, unemployment and under development.

"Even when I joined Congress from BJP last time, I had called my party leaders and with their consent, I joined the Congress", he said.

Claiming that the BJP has successfully ended politics of religion, appeasement and dynasty from the country, Shah claimed Bengal is still an exception with the Trinamool government pampering a particular community. "Our party president is well aware of the present political situation in Bengal", West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh told after a four-hour-long closed door meet here that Shah had with state party leaders.

India Draws Flak from UN Human Rights Chief Over Rohingya Issue
Myanmar is facing mounting criticism over the Rohingya crisis and there have been protests in several Muslim-majority nations. Ali described actions following the attacks on security forces on August 25 as "revenge" by Myanmar troops.

His remarks came on a day Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi said that dynasties were commonplace in India, from politics to business, and asserted that a person's capabilities were more important than pedigree.

While the others have been cross-examined, only the BJP chief's testimony remained.

"I want to ask him when has the BJP brought out a rally for the interest of people of West Bengal", he said. Is this Swami Vivekananda's Bengal? He has said nowhere else does one see so much political violence.

"Amit Shah is being misled by party leaders in Bengal".

Sentu Mondal and Hemen Mondal from Malda district who were allegedly attacked by TMC activists previous year during Durga Puja met Shah.
