State BJP president Rahul Sinha inaugurated a NaMo tea stall beside Howrah Railway Station Tuesday where he sold tea for Rs 2. The stall has a flex printed with BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s pictures on it.
Many such tea stalls would be opened across the state. “We want to send across the message that Modi, who used to sell tea, is now set to become prime minister. This proves that in a democracy like India, people can rise by the dint of their sheer qualities. These stalls would be used to invite people to Brigade Parade Ground on February 5, where Modi and BJP national president Rajnath Singh would be addressing a rally,” he said.
About 50,000 tea sellers would be invited to attend the rally. “Besides, there would be labourers, farmers, IT officials and college students at the rally,” he said, adding around 2,000 people had registered online for the rally.
Sinha on Tuesday also inaugurated the sports cell of the party.
He also said the party will fight all 42 seats in the state.
