Parivartan: How BJP breached Mamata’s Bengal bastion

New Delhi, May 26 (TIWN): It s an unpretentious little room on Pearabagan Road in Hooghly s Chinsurah, with some chairs, posters and an idol of Bharat Mata . But in the BJP s slow, steady and largely unspotted rise in West Bengal, this room played a role as good as any.

Sitting under a poster with photos of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah and others, Arup Das says the room has been ransacked four times and burnt down twice since the BJP opened its office here in 2011, allegedly by ruling Trinamool Congress workers. I was inside the office when it was set ablaze once. Police took no action, says Das, in-charge of the office and now a BJP ward president.
