BJP President and Union Home Minister Amit Shah will address a citizens convention in Kolkata on 1 October in his first trip to West Bengal after joining the union cabinet, a senior party leader said.

Shah would also attend a few party meetings during his visit, his first after the Lok Sabha polls where the BJP came up with an impressive performance in the state.

Shah is also likely to inaugurate a Durga puja marquee before leaving the city on 2 October.

"He will arrive on 1 October. We are still finalising the details of the visit. He would speak at a citizens convention on the National Register for Citizens (NRC). Some internal party meetings are also being lined up during his trip," BJP national secretary Rahul Sinha told IANS.

He said the venue of the citizens' convention and the particular puja marquee he would inaugurate were yet to be decided.
