The Kolkata Police on Wednesday gave permission for BJP president Amit Shah’s rally on August 11, hours after he dared the Mamata Banerjee government to arrest him.
“It does not matter whether I get permission or not, I will definitely go to Kolkata. If the state government wants, it can arrest me,” Shah was quoted by news agency saying. The rally will be held at Mayo Road.
 Shah and Banerjee on Tuesday attacked each other over Assam’s National Register of Citizens (NRC), questioning each other’s commitment to national security. 
“It (NRC) will be implemented to the last full stop and comma,” said Shah in Delhi at a press conference. The BJP chief, who has handed his party a target of 50 per cent Lok Sabha seats in Bengal, plans to visit Kolkata on August 11 
Banerjee accused the BJP of trying to divide people. “The situation cannot be tolerated. There will be a civil war, bloodbath in the country,” she said. 
Four years ago, Kolkata's civic body had refused permission for a rally of Amit Shah. The rally was finally held after t he BJP got a go ahead from the Calcutta High Court.
 The face -off had fuelled the animosity between the BJP and Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress. Bengal is one of the few non-BJP, non-Con gress states and ranks high on the target list of Mr Shah along with Kerala.
