'Durga Puja curbed, forced cow slaughter on Eid': Yogi's poll pitch in Bengal

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath campaigned for the Bharatiya Janata Party in West Bengal's Malda on March 2.

One of the main themes of his speech was the claim that the Hindu religion is under threat in the state.

He claimed that Durga Puja is being restricted, while forced cow slaughter is carried out during Eid in Bengal.

The state will vote in 8 phases between March 27 and April 29, with results being declared on May 2.
