Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday announced a new ‘Narayani Sena Battalion’ in the paramilitary forces. He said that the training centre will be named after ‘veer’ Chila Roy (the Prince and younger brother of King Nara Narayan of Koch Dynasty). Narayani Sena is linked with Rajbonshi community.
While addressing a ‘Porivartan Yatra’ in Rash Mela Ground in Cooch Behar, Shah said, “Today, I feel honoured to address you from Cooch Behar which is known for the bravery of Narayani Sena. Once Narayani Sena courageously fought with the Mughals and chased them away. Now once again infiltrators are entering India illegally. We will dedicate a Narayani Sena battalion in the paramilitary forces soon. Not the least the training centre for Narayani Sena will be known as Chila Roy.” He also pledged to fulfill the dream of ‘Sonar Bangla’ in West Bengal in five years and requested the masses to vote for the BJP under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. With more than 30 percent vote share, Rajbonshi are undeniably a deciding factor to turn the tables for any political party in North Bengal. It was Rajbonshi which helped the BJP to gain massive inroads in the region in the last Lok Sabha polls.
