    Didi changes tack, prays to contain BJP

    CM Mamata has to tackle a rising BJP in Bengal.

    KOLKATA : Bengal BJP's expanding outreach in rural areas has prompted Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to calibrate her campaign strategy and send out signals that she is a tolerant Hindu.

    This possibly explains why Mamata spent around one hour at KapilMuni's ashram with its chief priest Gyandasji during her Gangasagar visit on December 26, ahead of Makar Sankranti on January 14, when lakhs of pilgrims will be taking a holy dip at the confluence of the Ganga and the Bay of Bengal.

    "I will come to this place again," the CM said, possibly to appear balanced, and counter the perception that she is pro-minority. Indeed, Mamata has been doing this adroitly, treading a course different from Mayawati or Mulayam Singh Yadav.
    The surprise surge in BJP's vote-share in the recent assembly byelections+ , Sabang and Dakshin Kanthi, where the saffron party doesn't have an organisation worth mentioning, is a pointer to a shift in Bengal's political narrative that was broadly built on class intertwined with caste and the minority votebank. In the Sabang assembly bypoll, Trinamool got 1,06,179 votes and the BJP, which had won only 5,610 votes in 2016, jumped to 37,476 this time.
