"Mamata didi says you cannot chant 'Jai Shree Ram' in Bengal. Mamata Didi, I chant 'Jai Shri Ram' from the dais of Joynagar seat. I will go Kolkata, arrest me if you have guts," Shah said at a campaign rally.
"People do not get permission for Durga worship in Mamata Didi's rule. Her goons create ruckus at Saraswati 'puja' venues. You cannot chant 'Jai Shri Ram' because she wants votes of infiltrators," Shah remarked.
Appealing to people to vote for his party, he said, "You vote against Mamata on May 19. I guarantee you, the BJP government and Narendra Modi will create an environment where 'puja' can once again be performed in a glorious manner."
"Didi is so frustrated these days that she doesn't even want to talk about God. The situation is such that Didi is arresting and jailing those who are chanting 'Jai Sri Ram'," Modi had said at a rally in Tumluk on May 6.
Shah also reiterated his party's promise of deporting illegal immigrants living in the state.
