Union home minister Amit Shah on Friday urged the people of West Bengal to fulfil their responsibilities to restore the pride of the state which was once the centre of spirit and non secular awakening.
“West Bengal is the land of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Thakur Ramakrishna Paramhans, Vivekananda. Appeasement politics has hurt the state’s tradition. I urge people to fulfil their responsibilities to restore the pride of the state which was once the centre of spiritual and non secular awakening,” Shah said while on his two-day visit to Bengal.
Shah also held a review assembly with the senior officers of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Bankura.
He had met a tribal circle of relatives in Chaturthi village, Bankura, and had food with them on Thursday.
Right through his two-day visit, Shah met senior BJP leaders from the state, reviewed the upcoming meeting ballot preparations and looked into organisational affairs.
Earlier this year, Shah had addressed a virtual rally in the state. This is his first visit to West Bengal after the Covid-19-induced lockdown. He had final visited the state on March 1 amid the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests.
