“I am president of a national party and I am here to campaign for my party.
“I am being called an outsider for coming to West Bengal. What sort of statement is this? In the event that an individual from West Bengal goes to Mumbai or Bengaluru, will he be called an outsider? At the point when Mamata didi goes to Delhi will she be called an outsider?” Shah asked
