Launching the ruling BJP's campaign in Bengal for the national election due by May, Amit Shah today mocked the mega opposition rally organised by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday. There were 23 parties and nine prime minister aspirants at that gathering at Kolkata's Brigade Ground, the BJP president said at a rally in Malda.
Amit Shah's rally almost didn't happen. The BJP claimed the Malda administration had refused to permission to let his helicopter land at the state-run airstrip. But land he did. Of two options -- the BSF helipad and that at a private resort, he chose the latter.
