West Bengal Polls: PM Modi To Visit Matua Shrine In Bangladesh

Kolkata: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit the neighbouring country and likely to offer respect at the shrine of Harichand Thakur, the founder of the Matua sect, at Orakandi in Gopalganj district on March 27, the day when the state goes to the first of the eight-phase elections.

Modi’s move is said to be a smart one ahead of the Assembly elections to woo the Matua electorates, who are a deciding factor in at least 35 seats in the north and south Bengal.

However, it is yet to be decided whether BJP MP from Bongaon Shantanu Thakur, who is a representative of Matuas, will accompany Modi.

The saffron camp’s high-command is trying hard to retain the support of Matuas, which is an SC community. Due to the Matuas’ support, the BJP could bag 18 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The BJP had promised the followers of the sect, who had migrated from Bangladesh since the Partition, that they would be given citizenship by implementing the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
