With the state BJP going through troubled times following the exit of several leaders from the party’s WhatsApp groups, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP national president JP Nadda are likely to visit West Bengal in January to streamline the state unit.
According to party sources, both the leaders will hold meetings with state leadership and discuss issues that are plaguing the party after back-to-back poll debacles in the state.
While Nadda is likely to visit the state for a two-day trip staring January 9, Shah is scheduled to come to the state in the last week of January. The dates, however, have not been finalised yet.
Sources said Nadda’s visit assumes significance ahead of civic polls in four municipal corporations. “It is likely that the party’s national president will set the strategy for the upcoming civic polls. The road map of the party in West Bengal will also be decided during the visit. However, the dates have not been finalised,” said a party leader.
