Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah arrived in Kolkata on Saturday morning to a musical welcome and noisy protests ahead of a public meeting to boost the saffron party’s footprint in West Bengal in the run-up to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The Kolkata airport became a scene of competition for both the saffron workers and ruling Trinamool Congress supporters laid out their own style of welcome. BJP workers staged a ‘kirtan’, complete with khol and kartals in traditional style, to welcome their leader. Some were also seen playing the ektara, a one-stringed instrument typically used by bauls of wondering minstrels of Bengal.
