Keeping Mamata’s ‘Who is Amit Shah’ jibe behind, Shah to address Kolkata NRC meet

Agency News

New Delhi, Sep 30: About 12 days after Mamata Banerjee and Amit Shah had a crucial one-on-one and closed door meeting in New Delhi, BJP chief and Union Home Minister will be making one day visit to Kolkata on Tuesday to address a meeting on the much-talked about National Register of Citizens (NRC).

According to a senior BJP leader, the meeting has been billed as 'a public awakening programme on NRC' and will be held in the spacious Netaji Indoor Stadium.

Among other agenda, Shah will meet party MPs, MLAs and state office-bearers and will also visit a Durga Puja pandal at city's posh and intellectual hub Salt Lake locality.

Shah's visit also comes close on the heels of yet another high drama on Jadavpur University campus where Union Minister Babul Suprioyo was 'gheraoed' by left wing students and ultimately Governor Jagdeep Dhankar had to rescue him.

Shah, who has always faced a hostile state administration during and prior to his visits will be arriving in less than a fortnight time since his meeting with the Chief Minister - who has in the past questioned him and used phrases like 'Who is Amit Shah?' (UNI)
