Yogi Adityanath had two programs scheduled in West Bengal today.
The Durgapur rally of the prime minister was part of BJP’s ‘Ganatantra Bachao’ (save democracry) programme in the state.
According to news agency ANI, Mritunjay Kumar, the Information Advisor to CM Yogi Adityanath said, “Ye UP CM ki lokpriyata ka hi asar hai ki Mamata Banerjee [West Bengal CM] ne helicopter landing ka permission tak nahi diya [It is because of UP CM Yogi Adityanath’s popularity that Mamata Banerjee even denied his helicopter from landing in West Bengal].”
