Siliguri, West Bengal: The scheduled visit of J.P. Nadda, the national president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), to Siliguri has been unexpectedly canceled, leaving party supporters and local leaders disheartened. Nadda was slated to attend the renowned radio program “Mann Ki Baat” at Bagdogra before proceeding to Sikkim on Sunday. However, without an official explanation, the sudden alteration in plans has sparked speculation and curiosity.
Earlier today, prominent BJP leaders, including Darjeeling MP Raju Bista and Matigara-Naxalbari MLA Anandamoy Barman, gathered at Bagdogra for the anticipated event. A large number of enthusiastic BJP supporters had also gathered, eager to express their allegiance to the party.
The cancellation prompted a significant deployment of police forces at Bihar More in Bagdogra, as security measures were intensified to ensure the area’s safety following the unexpected change in Nadda’s itinerary.
Avinash Singh Arya, a BJP leader, confirmed the news of the visit’s cancellation, but the specific reasons behind the decision remain undisclosed. The party has not yet released an official statement, leaving uncertainty regarding any potential rescheduling of the event or whether this was an isolated alteration.
The abrupt cancellation of such a high-profile visit has undoubtedly disappointed BJP supporters in Siliguri and the surrounding areas, who were eagerly awaiting the opportunity to hear from their national president and demonstrate their support.
This development comes at a time when political activities in West Bengal are gaining momentum, with various parties vying to strengthen their presence in the state. The unexpected change in plans may have significant implications for the BJP’s political strategies and future endeavors in the region.
As further details emerge, the motives behind J.P. Nadda’s canceled visit to Siliguri will be closely examined, and its potential impact on the local political landscape will be assessed.
