The party also intends to launch similar yatras from Coochbehar, Kakdwip in South 24 Parganas, Jhargram and Tarapith in Birbhum between February 6 and 11.
Meanwhile, TMC will also take out a 2-day bike rally across Nadia district today afternoon, around the same time Nadda will launch his campaign in the district. The TMC campaign named ‘JansamarthanYatra’ is a 2-day event; will be flagged off at Chapra on Saturday. The TMC rally moves through Krishnanagar and end at Palashi.
In his address at Malda, Nadda slams the ruling government, taking a dig at Chief Minister Nadda said "What Mamata di did with farmers of Bengal by depriving them of PM Kisan Scheme benefits was an injustice. She did not allow the implementation of the welfare programme in the state to satisfy her ego. Nadda added that Chief Minister of West Bengal is Anti-farmer as she not launched the central government scheme earlier in Bengal and deprived the farmers of their benefits and rights. Nadda, attending the final round of the month-long "Krishak Suraksha Abhiyan" of the party, said people of the state have made up their mind to bid "namaste and tata" to Banerjee and her party after the assembly polls.
"Now after realising that the farmers themselves have allowed the scheme she has said she would implement it. The 70 lakh farmers for the last two years have been deprived of annual aid of Rs 6, 000," Nadda said. The BJP chief also had lunch with the farmers on the open ground as part of the "Krishak Suraksha Saha-Bhoj" at Sahapur village in Malda. He had 'kichdi' and 'sabji' on the menu.
"When I was coming here I was greeted with Jai Shri Ram slogans. But I don't understand why Mamata didi gets angry after hearing it," Nadda said while he was referring to the January 23 incident at Victoria Memorial Hall in Kolkata.
