Stressing the need to restore the “lost glory” of West Bengal, Union Home Secretary Amit Shah said today that the state’s current “appeasement policy” had hurt its centuries-old tradition of maintaining the spiritual conscience of the nation.
While claiming that Bengal is the land of luminaries such as Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda, Amit Shah said that the state was once the center of spiritual awakening across the country.
“However, the policy of ‘tustikaran’ (appeasement) has hurt this glorious tradition of Bengal. I hereby call on the people of Bengal to wake up and fulfill their responsibilities to bring back the glory of the state. “
The main BJP leader, who visited the Dakshineswar temple on the second day of his two-day visit to the state, was taken to the centuries-old shrine sanctum sanctum, where he offered the puja to the goddess.
“I prayed for the welfare of the entire state, the country and its people. We prayed that the country will maintain its position of glory in the world under the leadership of (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi. “
Amit Shah was greeted at the temple by members of the BJP State Mohila Morcha, including its president Agnimitra Paul, who blew out conch shells and put a “tilak” on his forehead.
The Union Home Minister, after offering prayers, made his way to prominent singer Pandit Ajoy Chakraborty music school, Shrutinandan, where he met his students and family members .
