PM Modi expected to visit Bengal on March 6, address rally: Bengal BJP president

Kolkata/IBNS: Amid the row of Sandeshkhali, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to visit West Bengal on March 6 and address a rally at Barsat in North 24 Parganas', BJP's state unit President Sukanta Majumdar said on Thursday.

Before leaving for Sandeshkhali, Majumdar, who is also the MP from Balurghat in north Bengal, told reporters that they came to know that the Prime Minister would visit the state on March 6 and address a rally at Barasat before leaving the state on that very day.

Majumdar said the BJP is keen to assemble mostly women including the ones from Sandeshkhali in the rally.

"If the mothers and sisters of Sandeshkhali want to meet the Prime Minister, we will arrange for them," the BJP leader said.

A separate report said that Majumdar reached Sandeshkhali and met the people there, especially the women, who had been subjected to torture allegedly by local TMC leaders, including absconding Sahjahan Sheikh.

BJP sources said Majumdar reached Sandeshkhali on his third attempt. The previous two attempts last week failed as the state police stopped him at Basirhat and Taki, also in N 24 Parganas.

In Taki last week he sustained a fall during an alleged scuffle with the police and was admitted to a city hospital for two days.

Majumdar is scheduled to call on the family members of BJP's North 24 Parganas convenor Bikash Singh, who has been arrested by the state police.
