Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah stopped midway in his speech while addressing a rally here as the muezzin’s call for prayers was sounded from a mosque close by and said he didn’t want to give West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee an excuse against him.

“Let me stop for a while. Let it (the muezzin’s call for azan) be completed. We don’t want to give Mamata Banerjee an excuse against us,” Shah said midway of his 30-minute speech as the azan (prayers) started.

When some BJP supporters started shouting slogans while the azan was going on, the party president raised his hands and asked them to remain silent, reiterating, “We should not give any excuse to Mamata’didi.”

Shah’s jibe at Banerjee came in the wake of the uncertainty about conducting Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rally at the city’s Esplanade area with the state administration and civic authorities initially denying permission and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) knocking the doors of the High Court.

    Rahul hi was responsible for BJP's victory in 2014 LS polls. Mumtaz didi will be responsible for BJP's victory in WB embly elections 2016. Go Amit go, patriots are with you.. Bengal is the land of great nationalists like Swami Vivekanand, Rabindranath Tagore, Sri Aurobindo, Netaji Subash Chandra Bose and many more. I am sure Bengalis will not let go this pro nationalist spirit. Mumtaz didi is a terrorist. In her 3.5 years of (mis)rule, she has only completed one task with utter success: Transferring to money earned from Sharda chit fund scam to Jamait-e-Islami Bangladesh to carry out their activities easily. The doors of India are opened to them through West Bengal. Come, kill our people. But days are very less for her. Her ic atude, the intelligence of Shri Amit Shah and most importantly her vote sharing with her sister terrorist group (MIM) is sure to give her a defeat whe has not even dreamed of ever. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "To me an Indian is one who has got a Vedantic brain which probes deep and soars high; an Islamic body that is vibrant and valiant; a Buddhistic heart overflowing with compion and kindness and Christian limbs of service and sacrifice." - Swami Vivekananda ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
