Bracing the upcoming assembly elections in the state of West Bengal, Union Home Minister and Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Amit Shah launched the fifth ‘Poribortan Yatra’ (rally for change) in in Kakdwip of South 24 Parganas district.

Shah said that if it comes to power, BJP will provide more than 33 per cent reservation to the women in West Bengal.

“It is not our aim to only bring BJP government after removing Mamata Banerjee's government. Our goal is to ensure that there is a change in the situation in West Bengal, a change in the situation of the poor of the state, a change in situation of women of the state,” said Shah.

“This is BJP's fight to make Bengal 'Sonar Bangla'. This fight is between our booth workers and the syndicate of TMC,” he added.

“This is not a change in power, this is about bringing respect to Gangasagar, about bringing a change in the fishermen of the region. Can law and order situation be fine in West Bengal as long as there is Mamata Banerjee's govt here? Can Bengal walk on the path to progress?” he asked.

The home minister also paid a visit to Gangasagar's Kapil Muni Ashram to offer prayers today.
