‘Fascination’, silent support for BJP in TMC bastion
By Indian Express 24-Apr-2019
Far away from the political corridors of Delhi, in this sleepy ‘land of lal maati (red soil)’ in West Bengal, many a slogan is being overturned.
For one, the BJP’s ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’ promise — that it is still trying to delicately balance with firefighting criticism over fielding terror-accused Pragya Thakur in the polls — has been officially junked by the party in the Bolpur Lok Sabha seat. BJP candidate Ramprasad Das says, “ I am not going to the Muslim areas.” Muslims constitute about 30 per cent of the votes here.
“It’s not about religion. I am concentrating on the 80 per cent of the region where we have support. In the remaining 20 we have no organisation,” he says.
BJP’s war cry of a Congress-mukt Bharat has also hit a wall in Bolpur — that was recognised globally after Rabindranath Tagore established the Visva Bharati University here — in the face of dogged efforts by the Trinamool Congress for a ‘BJP-mukt Bangla’.
