Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a women’s rally at Barasat in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district on March 6, said BJP West Bengal unit President Sukanta Majumdar on Thursday. The Balurghat MP also said the party will help the sexual assault victims of Sandeshkhali meet the prime minister. Incidentally, Sandeshkhali is located in the Basirhat subdivision of the North 24 Parganas.

Speaking to media persons, Majumdar said, “We came to know today (Thursday) that the prime minister will be visiting the state on March 6. If the mothers and sisters of Sandeshkhali want to meet PM Modi, we will definitely arrange it.”

PM Modi’s visit to Bengal and the decision to address a women’s rally assume significance in the backdrop of several Sandeshkhali women levelling charges of sexual harassment against Trinamool Congress leaders.

While accused Uttam Sardar and Shiba Prasad Hazra have been arrested, TMC strongman Sheikh Shahjahan has remained absconding since January 5, when a mob attacked Enforcement Directorate officials who had gone to search his premises in connection with a ration scam.
