Bengal state BJP chief inaugurates 21 Durga Pujas, thanks to party's changing stars

WB BJP chief inaugurates 21 Durga Pujas
Kolkata, Sept 29: The BJP was not a big force in West Bengal even during last year's Durga Puja. But this year, thanks to the rise in the Lok sabha vote-share by over three per cent, victory in two parliament seats and an assembly poll, the saffron party has getting more recognition.

According to a report published in Bengali daily Ei Samay, state BJP president Rahul Sinha, who was not there at the inauguration ceremony of a single Durga Puja last year, has inaugurated 21 Pujas already and turned down three times the offer. What is even more striking is that Sinha was invited to inaugurate a Puja, the chief patron of which is a Trinamool Congress minister.

The party had a tough time in finalising the Pujas that Sinha would inaugurate.

The Bjp leadership in the state is elated over the development and is trying to increase links with the grassroots through this.
