Union Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah reached Kolkata at around 1 am on Saturday for his two-day visit to the state.
He was welcomed at Kolkata airport by several BJP leaders including Kailash Vijayvargiya and Dilip Ghosh.
“Reached Kolkata! I bow to this revered land of greats like Gurudev Tagore, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar & Syama Prasad Mookerjee,” Shah wrote on Twitter.
His visit comes at a time when several MLAs from the ruling Trinamool Congress have resigned from the state Assembly.
Amit Shah’s visit is expected to strength the Bharatiya Janata Party’s organisational support in the rural outskirts before the high-voltage 2021 Assembly polls.
