After Bihar, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will address virtual rally for West Bengal on Tuesday .
Social media platforms will stream the live broadcast as Amit Shah addresses Bengal virtually for the first time from the BJP headquarters in Delhi.
Arrangements have been made with screens set up at booth levels to reach out to party workers. The BJP expects to reach out to 65,000 booths via live streaming.
The target is to reach out to more than 1 crore karyakartas, BJP sources said.
As he addresses virtual rally for Bengal, Amit Shah is likely to raise the TMC government’s alleged mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic and the migrant labour crisis in the state, BJP sources said.
During Covid-19 times, virtual rallies have become popular with parties keeping the momentum going and improve the morale of partyworkers on the ground. “For the last two months, our cadres are sitting idle at homes. Amit Shah Ji’s rally would be very crucial to boost the morale of our cadres and will help them to re-energise ahead of the next year’s assembly polls,” the BJP leader said.
Shah’s virtual rally for Bengal comes days after he had exuded confidence of BJP winning a majority in next year’s assembly polls.
The saffron camp, which last week released a “nine-point chargesheet” against Mamata Banerjee’s rule over the past nine years, recently floated a social media drive christened ‘Aar Noi Mamata’ (no longer Mamata’s rule).
According to state BJP sources, the party is planning to conduct more than 1,000 virtual rallies, covering every nook and corner of the state.
