Amit Shah asserted that India has now joined the league of countries like the US and Israel in carrying out surgical strikes.

Earlier in the day, Shah, who arrived at the Kolkata airport was greeted by the West Bengal BJP leadership, led by state party president Dilip Ghosh.

Hundreds of protesters of the Left Front and Congress, holding black flags and anti-CAA posters, demonstrated outside gate number 1 of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport.

Police had put up a barricade to prevent them from crossing over to the entrance of the airport.

Shah is scheduled to address a rally at the Shaheed Minar Ground, where the state BJP will felicitate him for the passage of the amended citizenship law in Parliament.
