They also got into a tussle with the police on the issue. Only then did it come to know that Shah's arrival is uncertain." "Local people say that the rally time was at 11 am. But till then the crowd did not gather in the ground, then the BJP leaders accused the police of stopping the supporters.BJP leaders alleged that vehicles taking supporters were stopped five kilometers away. People are facing a lot of trouble due to this.
However, BJP's Bengal in-charge Kailash Vijayvargiya had said in the morning, "Some technical problem has arisen in the helicopter. It is being considered to take Shah to the rally site by road. This is why the rally is delayed. But shortly after that the local leaders announced that Shah would give a speech in a virtual way instead of reaching the rally in a physical manner. "Shah later addressed the rally of Ranibandh. There he said that a technical glitch in the helicopter delayed him from reaching there.Even on this occasion, he targeted the ruling TMC and said that he would not accuse him of any conspiracy about the mess in the helicopter.
After allegations by TMC and Congress, Home Minister Amit Shah tweeted pictures of the rally at Jhargram, saying that he could not attend the rally but thanked everyone for reaching such a large number of people.
