In a bid to deal with the infighting in the West Bengal unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Union Home Affairs Minister and former party president Amit Shah is likely to take the direct charge of the party in the State which is set to undergo assembly elections next year, The Sunday Guardian.
It is expected that Shah will be undertaking multiple visits to the State and holding meetings with the party’s state unit’s leadership after the culmination of the assembly elections in Bihar.
This comes as Shah and the incumbent party president JP Nadda are said to be directly looking at the infighting. State observers of the party Kailash Vijayvargiya and Arvind Menon have also been directed by the central leadership to ensure that the differences are contained.
It should be noted that recently, Nadda had also visited North Bengal. During the visit, Nadda had held multiple meetings with the State leadership. Later, Shah was also expected to visit the State between 16-19 October. However, Shah’s visit was cancelled as he was still recuperating from COVID-19 disease.
The assembly elections hold significance for the BJP, which has made major headway in its reach and positioning in the State, emerging into the principal opposition party in the State. This comes even as the party had little or no presence just four years back.
