Top Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah will arrive in West Bengal for two days starting Thursday, his first since the state assembly polls last year, and hold organisational meetings, address a public rally, besides visiting forward areas along the India-Bangladesh border.

Shah on Thursday will inaugurate BSF's floating border outposts at Hingalganj and lay the foundation stone of Maitri' museum at Haridaspur, official sources said.

He will address a public meeting in Siliguri in the evening.

On Friday, he will visit the India-Bangladesh border area of Teen Bigha, where he is scheduled to interact with BSF personnel.

The Union minister, after attending a programme at Victoria Memorial Hall in Kolkata later on Friday, will hold a meeting with office-bearers at state BJP headquarters.

His visit to West Bengal comes at a time when the BJP looks to tone up its organisational machinery in the state, which has been plagued by internal squabbles and defections since the 2021 assembly poll results.

The state BJP unit has carefully crafted his political engagements, with multiple programmes slotted for North Bengal, where it made deep inroads both in the 2019 Lok Sabha and the 2021 assembly polls, party sources said.
