Bengal BJP wants Amit Shah to contest from state
winning 22 seats from the state (West Bengal has 42 Lok Sabha seats). After the rath yatra planned for Bengal concludes on 23 January, it will be clearer as to where Shah will contest the election from. But it is desired that Shah will contest from West Bengal,” a senior BJP functionary said.
BJP’s West Bengal general secretary, Sayantan Basu told The Sunday Guardian, “We will be happy if Amit Shah contests the Lok Sabha elections from West Bengal. This will act as a morale boost for the cadre to take on the Mamata Banerjee government.”
