Elections 2019: Conspiracy to Turn West Bengal into Gujarat?
May 18, 2019
In this episode of Pulse of India, senior journalist Bhasha Singh visited West Bengal’s capital Kolkata. A few days ago, 19th century social reformer Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar’s bust was destroyed allegedly by BJP activists during Amit Shah’s roadshow. This incident has sparked a new type of communal polarisation in the state. The BJP and the RSS under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah are trying to turn West Bengal into another Gujarat.
