    While state BJP workers believe that Shah's proposed visit to Bengal would boost the morale of the party's grassroots workers, senior Trinamool Congress leader and the party's Lok Sabha MP Sougata Roy said: "Amit Shah is coming to Bengal to iron out internal feud amongst various factions. We all know that many BJP leaders are not in good terms with their party's state president Dilip Ghosh. I believe Shah is coming to address that before the next year's assembly elections."
