It further stated that the Prime Minister, who had addressed Bengal farmers during his previous visit on February 7, this time, will deliver a message on the investment issue in the state from a place from where Tata Motors were driven out by the ruling Trinamool Congress.
‘’It was Mamata Banerjee who had spearheaded a movement against alleged forcible land acquisition in Singur, Hooghly and driven out Tata Motors. Since then, Bengal has not any witnessed any investment in the state. Now our party functionaries both national and state-level are promising investment in West Bengal if our party comes to power. The Prime Minister’s Hooghly visit will not only send a message that the BJP is equally focused on farmers’ interest and investment in Bengal issues,’’ said a senior BJP leader.
The saffron camp’s state functionaries have decided to find a venue on the bank of the Hooghly, as the district’s factories are located along the riverside and most of them are closed.
‘’We have identified two places. One is adjoining to Chinsurah court and the other is near the closed Dunlop factory on the outskirts of the district headquarters. ‘’Both the venues are on the bank of the Hooghly. We want the Prime Minister to address the rally from the venue near Dunlop factory. It will send a message highlighting the sorry condition investment in Bengal,’’ said another party leader
