The West Bengal BJP will conduct a protest march to Nabanna, the State Secretariat against the alleged worsening of law and order situation and unemployment under the TMC government rule in the state.
The “Nabanna Abhiyan” has been convened by the BJP Yuva Morcha, the youth wing of the party.
The protest will be in form of four rallies from different parts of Kolkata and Howrah district.
Four major rallies – two from Kolkata, one from Howrah Maidan and one from Santragachi will finally culminate at the state secretariat in Nabanna in Howrah district overlooking the Vidyasagar Setu.
Saumitra Khan, MP and West Bengal president of BJP Janata Yuva Morcha (BJPYM) said, “The dreams of Bengal youth have been destroyed by the government. The youth is a demanding job. BJP workers have been murdered on a regular basis. We are going to hold a march on October 8 called “Nabanna Abhiyan”.”
BJP claims it is expecting a lakhs of peoeple in this rally. “I request all the members of the BJP youth wing in Bengal to join the march. I am expecting at least 2-4 lakh youth in the rally,” the president of BJPYM added.
On the other hand, TMC said that the BJP is trying to distract people. Modi government itself fails to improve the unemployment rate in the country.
Baiswanor Chatterjee, TMC Leader said, “The unemployment rate of India is the lowest under the rule of PM Modi in comparison to last 45 years. BJP is trying to change the topic that is why they are holding a march to Nabanna. They need to understand that we are not here by doing riots. We fought for 35 years with CPI (M). BJP wants to create a riot in Bengal and wants to destroy the peace of the state. The employment rate of Bengal is higher than in the whole country. They are doing this march for their own political benefit. BJP is a failure in the employment sector.”
BJP plans to reach out to the grass-root level with its youth brigade.
