Comparing Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s regime to German dictator Adolf Hitler’s, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday said she has been dreaming that her nephew Abhishek Banerjee will become Bengal CM but the next chief minister will be from the BJP.
Shah reached Andal airport in Paschim Bardhaman at around 12:40 and addressed a public meeting in Birbhum in the afternoon.
The BJP leader said Mamata is dreaming that her nephew Abhishek Banerjee will become Bengal CM but the next chief minister will be from the BJP and its trailer will be shown in the 2024 general elections.
“I am giving you a guarantee that BJP will not let Mamata Didi’s Hitler rule in Bengal. Mamata didi, you might be dreaming that your nephew will become the CM after you. From here in Birbhum, I say that the next CM is going to be from BJP. The trailer has to be shown in 2024 (general elections),” he said.

Give Us 35 Plus LS Seats from Bengal in 2024: Shah
Shah appealed to the people to ensure the BJP’s victory in 35 seats out of the 42 in West Bengal in the next Lok Sabha polls.
“In Bengal, you have to give BJP 35 seats and make Modi prime minister again. Tell me if Mamata can give a befitting reply to Pakistan and stop terrorism in Kashmir. Only Modi ji can do it, no one else,” he added.
He also said the Mamata Banerjee government won’t survive beyond 2025.
In 2019, the BJP won 18 out of 42 parliamentary seats in West Bengal.
Shah arrived in West Bengal on Friday on a two-day visit to the state. During the visit, he will take stock of the organisational strength of the BJP in the state.
Shah is visiting the state ahead of the rural polls due next month, and the party seeks to strengthen its organisational machinery. Later in the evening, he will meet with the state party leaders and take stock of the organisational situation at a city hotel.
Shah’s programme in Bengal is part of BJP’s ‘Pravas’ campaign to strengthen its organisation in 144 Lok Sabha seats in the country that it had lost by slender margins in the 2019 general election.
