KOLKATA: While expanding on BJP’s future course with an eye on 2021 assembly polls, West Bengal President and MP Dilip Ghosh said: “We have decided to enrol 3 crore members under ‘Amar Poribar, BJP Poribar’ programme. In order to achieve this, we are holding virtual meetings in each assembly constituency. Our aim is to organize five activists per booth and train 1,500 activists in each assembly segment.”

Earlier at a programme, BJP president J P Nadda took potshots at the Trinamool government, pointing to the prevalence of “cut-money” at “government levels”. He called on people to recover ‘Sonar Bangla’ that he said was now under the “eclipse” of corruption.

“Bengal has come under eclipse. There has been a steep financial decline, degradation of values with widespread corruption at government levels. The young are not getting educations, jobs. Many welfare schemes undertaken by the Modi government are being denied to people,” Nadda said in his virtual address on Friday while launching the ‘Amar Poribar, BJP Poribar’ campaign. The party aims to enrol 3 crore members in West Bengal.

Nadda’s virtual meeting was followed up by e-meetings in districts, addressed by Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh, party leader Mukul Roy and national secretary Rahul Sinha.
