Amit Shah sounded the Lok Sabha poll bugle for the BJP in Bengal on Tuesday at a rally in Malda, dubbing the Brigade Parade rally of the Opposition as one of “greed and lust with many prime ministerial aspirants”. “Out of the 23 (leaders) who addressed the Brigade rally, nine are potential prime ministerial candidates. The rock, Narendra Modi,” the BJP chief told the audience of 1.5 lakh, less than a week after the Brigade meet convened by Bengal chief minister Mamata drew several lakhs. Mamata has said that every BJP rally in Bengal should be followed by a Trinamul event at the same place soon. Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said Shah would not attend a rally at Jhargram as planned on Wednesday because doctors had advised rest.
