Krishnanagar, Jan. 13: The state BJP leadership is overwhelmed after receiving 26 nomination requests from prospective candidates for the ensuing lok sabha by poll for Bangao lok sabha constituency in North 24 parganas slated for February 13. The party, which has also so far received 8 such nomination requests for Nadia’s Krishnaganj assembly seat, have decided announce the name of the candidates on January 20 only after getting the final nod from party’s National president Amit Shah who would be arrive Calcutta on January 19 evening on a three day visit.

State BJP president Rahul Sinha on Tuesday told in Krishnanagar: “We are overwhelmed about the response among the people about BJP. This indicates that the BJP is approaching in right direction”.

“Eta ek adbhut unmadona BJP key niye, ja amader kachey ek barti paona”, he said.

Sinha said: “The 26 nomination request for Bangaon has made our task tough to select the right candidate. It is a immense response. The interested candidates who appealed for nomination include party activists and eminent outsiders as well. Similar can be said about Krishnaganj assembly by poll in Nadia, where so far we have received about 8 requests. We are hopeful to announce the name of the candidates for these two constituencies on January 20”.

Sinha claimed that ‘excitement’ (unmadona) about the BJP is due to recent ‘erosion’ of Trinamul’s credibility for the ongoing Sardha probe.

“We are hopeful for a good show in these by poll. The continuous erosion in Trinamul’s support base is an indication. Moreover, the BJP has earned credibility for its stand about Matua and the Bangladeshi refugees. People have able to understand that we are against mixing up Bangladeshi infiltrator and refugees. We have always extended our support to the refugees and demanded their status as citizen. All these have helped the party a credibility among people and so such excitement and interest about the party is not unusual”

The BJP leadership, meanwhile, have decided to meet the state election officer on Tuesday to demand deployment of the central Para military force for all the polling stations for Bangaon and Krishnaganj constituencies.

“We would demand that the state police not to be allowed to access with the 200 yards of the polling stations. We would demand for CPF for all the polling stations for free and fair poll”, he said.

Sinha said: “Party’s National president Amit Shah would arrive in Calcutta on February 19 evening. He would visit Burdwan on the next day where he would speak in a public meeting at 3 PM and prior to that he would held a meeting with state secretaries, state leaders and district presidents in Burdwan. On February 21 he would speak to media persons in Calcutta
