New Delhi, December 7: BJP president Amit Shah said on Friday that the party will "definitely" carry out 'yatras' in West Bengal and "nobody can stop it" from doing so. His comments came a day after the Calcutta High Court refused the BJP permission to hold a 'rath yatra' in Coochbehar, following the state government expressing apprehensions of violence.
"We will definitely carry out all 'yatras', nobody can stop us. BJP committed to change in West Bengal. The 'yatras' have not been cancelled, just postponed," Shah said at a press conference.
