“BJP is keeping a hawk's eye in those wards where the BJP couldn’t do well in the Assembly election for which it is decided that door-to-door campaigns will be made at red light areas and agents will be given in the booths in minority areas. Two agents will be kept in every booth so that if one is threatened another person can continue. Sufficient banners are being published so that the TMC cannot tear the posters,” said the party sources.
Notably, BJP leader Sajal Ghosh who was forcibly arrested after the police broke open his house is made the election agent of BJP candidate Priyanka Tibrewal.
