Over 100 security personnel of Gujarat Police have been flown in from their state to take charge of BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s security when he arrives in West Bengal for his rally on February 5.
Claiming that his party “does not have full faith in the state police,” West Bengal BJP president Rahul Sinha said the party has “decided to take control of Modi’s security.”
Sinha also referred to the recent police intervention at the Calcutta Book Fair where party workers “were illegally stopped” from distributing handbills in favour of Modi.
“The police’s action was politically motivated. We are sure that they were instructed to do so by the top bosses of the state government. We have put our legal cell into action and may soon take action against the police officers who had prohibited us from distributing leaflets,” Sinha said.
Modi will arrive in Kolkata on February 5 to hold a rally at the Brigade Parade Ground, which will also be witness to the CPM’s rally on February 9. The ruling party, Trinamool Congress, has already conducted a rally on January 30, which Sinha dubbed as a “show of strength”

He said CPM’s rally would be a proof of its existence, “while ours is for building a new government and nation.”
The party state president further informed that a document detailing issues that matter for the state has been sent to Modi.
“Among the issues raised in the four-page document are putting documents pertaining to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose in public domain; giving citizenship to the refugees of Bangladesh who had come to India following the unrest there; the failure of the state government in maintaining law and order situation here; corruption in the Teachers’ Eligibility Test; installation of trident lights; and the Saradha Group debacle,” Sinha said.
Modi, who would be accompanied by party national president Rajnath Singh, will leave for Delhi.
