Lucknow: Trinamool Congress (TMC) government did not give permission to Yogi Adityanath to land his helicopter in West Bengal but the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister circumvented the obstacle by taking a road route to Purulia where he addressed a rally on Tuesday.

Adityanath, who seems to not take things lying down, travelled to West Bengal's Purulia district by road from Bokaro in BJP-ruled Jharkhand to address a party rally on Tuesday. "We must save the people of Bengal from this corrupt government,  he said at the rally.


Tearing into the Mamata government, he said, "the chief minister is trying to save a man (Kolkata police chief) accused in the Saradha chit fund scam." He questioned why was Mamata sitting on a protest to protect a corrupt officer.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath went to Ranchi in Jharkhand by flight. He proceeded to Bokaro in a chopper from where he took a road route to Purulia.

On his way to Purulia in a car, Adityanath said the Mamata government was resorting to unconstitutional activities and because of which it was halting rallies of saints like him. " This (West Bengal) government is embroiled in undemocratic and unconstitutional activities and that is the reason why a 'sanyasi' and 'yogi' like me is not being allowed to step on the soil of Bengal," he said.



The BJP had on Monday said Adityanath's proposed rally in Bankura district scheduled for Tuesday was cancelled as the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government was "dilly-dallying" on giving permission for the landing of his helicopter. However, his Purulia rally will take place as per schedule, BJP's West Bengal chief Dilip Ghosh had said.

In an early morning tweet, Adityanath said, "It saddens me that Gurudev Tagore's Karmabhoomi, our Bengal today is suffering from anarchy and misrule of Mamata Banerjee government. Now is the time that West Bengal is freed from this government to protect the Constitution through a strong democratic movement."



In another tweet, he said, "...and that's why I will stand today in Purulia holding the flag of this movement challenging the alliance of corrupts."

Adityanath had to address the rallies in Raigunj and Balurghat over telephone. He lashed out at the "anti-people" TMC government in the state, saying the days of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's rule were "numbered", reported PTI.

The TMC and the BJP have lately been up in arms against each other – one over Adityanath’s rallies while the other over Kolkata Police chief Rajeev Kumar’s alleged involvement in ponzi scams in which the CBI wants to quiz him.
