NEW DELHI: After spearheading the campaign in the virtual world, the BJP leaders converged at Raj Ghat in the national capital to launch the "Save Bengal" campaign against the Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress government in the state following Basirhat communal tension.

"The Save Bengal campaign will be held in all parts of the country against the Jihadi anarchists who have subverted in the state at a time when soil (Maati) is red with the blood of Man (Manush)," said Union Minister Smriti Irani, while invoking the "Ma, Maati, Manush" slogan of Banerjee against the Left government in the state.

The Raj Ghat launch of the campaign was also attended by the Lok Sabha MP Meenakshi Lekhi who along with Parliamentarian Satyapal Singh was sent by the party chief Amit Shah on a fact finding mission to the state.

The BJP in charge of West Bengal Kailash Vijavargoya slammed the TMC government in the state, accusing Banerjee of indulging in Minority appeasement for electoral gains.
