Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a rally in West Bengal’s Midnapore today. During this time, he will also give information to the people about the decision of the center to increase the minimum support price of Kharif crops recently. Midnapore is the stronghold of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. From here today, PM Modi will launch ‘Mission Bengal’ in the wake of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Before his rally, a controversial tweet has been posted by BJP Karnataka Leader Shobha Karandlaje said, Welcome to the Islamic Republic of West Bengal. Shovan Mandal didn’t know that saying ‘Jai Sri Ram’ among his friends would get him beaten badly by his headmaster. Not only this, was also warned him not to wear sacred thread and tilak. Heights of arrogance!!!

Shobha is a Senior BJP leader from Karnataka and this comment is not suited on her personality. She also tweeted When Smt Sonal Mansingh refused to dance during the emergency, Indira Gandhi had her thrown out of every media house & forced them to stop funding her. Now she is nominated into Rajyasabha in front of the same Congress for the accomplishment in Bharatha Natyam”.
This rally of PM is being held in Midnapore, just 15 days after the BJP president Amit Shah’s June 28 public meeting in Purulia district. BJP state president Dilip Ghosh said that a rally of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Midnapore reveals that Bengal is one of our top priority states for the Lok Sabha elections. He said that we want to honor PM Modi Ji to increase the minimum support price. BJP has recently strengthened its position in various districts of West Bengal and has emerged as the main opposition party in the state and has emerged as strong in the recent Panchayat elections and by-elections in the state. The central cabinet has recently approved the increase in the MSP of all 14 notified Kharif crops including paddy.
