West Bengal: Amit Shah visits tribal's house, has lunch
Siliguri (WB), Apr 25: BJP president Amit Shah on Tuesday had lunch at the house of a tribal in Darjeeling district.
Shah sat on the floor of Raju Mahali's house at Dakkhin Katiajote village in Naxalbari area and had rice, moong dal, 'potol' fry, squash curry, salad and 'papad', served on a banana leaf.
BJP West Bengal unit president Dilip Ghosh accompanied Shah. The BJP president is on a three-day tour of West Bengal.
Shah plans to spend three days each in the TMC-ruled West Bengal, Odisha, Gujarat, Telangana and Lakshadweep in an attempt to strengthen his party's prospects in elections.
The BJP is buoyed by the by-election result earlier this month for the South Kanthi Assembly seat. The Trinamool won the seat as expected, but the BJP was a strong second with 31 per cent votes, pushing main opposition party the CPM to a poor third.
