State Health Minister Anil Vij said, “Chahe Yogi Adityanath ji ki rally ho, chahe Amit Shah ji yatra nikaalna chahte ho usmein rukawat daalti hai. Kabhi kisi ka helicopter rokti hai, isliye poori tarah se Mamata Banerjee wahi kar rahi hai jo Taadka kiya karti thi. (Be it the rally of Yogi Adityanath or the yatra of Amit Shahji, she puts obstacles in the way. She behaves like Taadka used to when saints performed yajna, as we see in Ram Leela).”

Vij had tweeted the same as well. In his tweet, he said, “बचपन में जब राम लीला देखने जाया करते थे उसमे एक सीन आता था कि जब ऋषि मुनि यज्ञ किया करते थे तो ताड़का उसमे व्यवधान डाल दिया करती थी ठीक वही काम ममता जी कर रही है कभी #अमितशाह जी की रथ यात्रा पर प्रतिबंध लगा कर, कभी जहाज उतरने की इजाजत न देकर ।”

He went on to attack Banerjee with “Bengal isn’t someone’s property. The country has democracy so everyone is free to go there. Every political party has the freedom to be active there.”

Without any prior notice, the West Bengal government had, on Sunday, denied permission to land Yogi’s chopper at Balurghat. South Dinajpur BJP leaders and supporters then gheraoed the District Magistrate outside his bungalow in Balurghat. The BJP claimed that the DM was neither cooperating nor stating a reason for the decision.
