The BJP launched the ‘Lokkho Sonar Bangla’ campaign to unseat the ruling Trinamool Congress government from power in the state.State BJP chief Dilip Ghosh and the party’s National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya were also present on the occasion.
“We’ll accept over 2 crore suggestions from people. We’ll make available approx 30,000 suggestion boxes across WB. Around 100 boxes will be kept in 294 assembly constituencies. Our workers will go from door to door with 50 boxes and 50 will be placed at strategic locations,” the BJP chief said.
The ‘Sonar Bangla’ campaign in Bengal will be conducted from March 3 till March 20, the BJP chief said. BJP leader JP Nadda added that LED raths will be launched for constituencies for digital feedback. “We’re making efforts to work towards making ‘Sonar Bangla’, with the inclusion of contributions of Swami Vivekananda, Rabindranath Tagore, Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Syama Prasad Mukherjee, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar in prestigious history of WB,” the BJP chief.

Targeting the Mamata Banerjee government in Bengal, JP Nadda said 11 crore toilets have been made in India and only 1.5 crore in Bengal. “Shows empowerment of women,” the BJP chief said.
“Dengue had spread here [Bengal]. The state govt wasn’t providing us reports on dengue. People were dying here and as the then Health Minister I used to ask Mamataji to give me reporting of dengue. She used to threaten the doctors that no reporting has to be done,” JP Nadda alleged.
JP Nadda reached West Bengal on Wednesday night and launched the “Lokkho Sonar Bangla Manifesto Crowdsourcing” programme on Thursday morning. This campaign is in line with BJP’s poll promise of rebuilding the state as ‘Sonar Bangla’.
