Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday arrived in West Bengal on a two-day visit to take stock of the BJP’s affairs and preparations in the state ahead of the 2021 Assembly elections.
Shah paid floral tributes to Khudiram Bose at a village in Pashchim Midnapore and also met Bose’s family members.
“Paid floral tributes to Khudiram Bose, an epitome of valour and courage, who at a very young age sacrificed himself for the cause of India’s Independence. His life stands as an inspiration for us to do all that it takes to preserve our freedom and democracy,” Shah tweeted.
Earlier, Shah paid tribute to Swami Vivekanand at Ramakrishna Ashram in Kolkata.
Had the profound fortune of spending time at the Ramakrishna Mission & pay tributes to Swami Vivekananda ji. He was a great son of Mother India who devoted his life to National Resurgence. May his ideals continue to inspire us to transform India into a land of enlightened wisdom.
Shah’s West Bengal visit came days after a convoy of BJP chief JP Nadda was attacked when he was on his way to Diamond Harbour area in West Bengal’s South 24 Parganas.
