He further alleged that the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal was only interested in appeasing minorities. Shah had also accused the Opposition of treating illegal immigrants as a vote bank and doing 'Ilu Ilu' with terrorists, an apparent reference to a popular Bollywood love song from the nineties.
In April, Shah criticised the grand old party for completely ignoring the Assam's development in its last 70 years in power. At a rally which he was addressing in the state, he said that Narendra Modi-led government can evict all illegal immigrants from Assam.
