“People want jobs. They want entrepreneurship to flourish. They look forward to the day when they can live in peace and amity. They want development of all and appeasement of none. They look for strong steps against ghuspetiyas (infiltrators) and want citizenship for refugees, “said Shah, who ended his roadshow at Mamata’s starting point.
Mamata took potshots at her aide-turned-poll rival Suvendu adhikari by declaring that even Mukul Roy, who had jumped ship four years ago, was not “as bad as him”. She then addressed Shah as the architect of trouble in the BJP ranks, considering that 15 disgruntled functionaries of the saffron party had approached her for TMC tickets.
Asked what would be BJP’s strategy on polling day in Nandigram on April 1, Shah told reporters later, “There is no need for a strategy. The huge gathering today speaks of the public support we have. We are going to win by a huge margin . ”
