Accusing the Mamata Banerjee government of misusing the administration, Babul said that if Mamata Banerjee is in power, it is all because of the politicisation and misuse of police and administration.

The two senior BJP leaders will visit the state separately every month to take stock of the party organisation ahead of the elections, state BJP president Dilip Ghosh said. “Amit Shah and J P Nadda will visit the state separately every month till the assembly elections are over.
The dates are yet to be finalised. Their regular visits will energise the party workers,” Ghosh told reporters. Shah is likely to visit the state for two consecutive days a month and Nadda for three days, party sources said.
After catapulting the NDA to power following a stupendous performance by the BJP, the saffron party has made it clear that mission Bengal tops their next target. Shah, who missed campaigning in Bihar, made a two-day trip to Bengal starting November 5 to oversee BJPs preparedness for the state polls.
BJP president J P Nadda was scheduled to accompany Shah to Bengal, but his visit was canceled the night before. During the visit Shah met the family members of a BJP worker Madan Ghorai allegedly killed in judicial custody last month in Patashpur in Purba Medinipur district and hit out at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over alleged minority appeasement and deteriorating law and order,
He had also demanded a white paper on political killings in the state. The Bengal BJP chief also lashed out at the Congress-CPI (M) alliance, saying both the parties have been rejected by the people of the state long back.
“The people of West Bengal have given chances to the Congress, the CPI(M) and the TMC. All the three parties have failed to live up to the expectations of the masses, which will now be fulfilled by the BJP,” he said.
