Just days after opposition leaders hailing from 23 parties assembled at Kolkata’s Brigade Parade ground under the leadership of TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, BJP President Amit Shah hit back at the opponents from West Bengal’s Malda.
Amit Shah called the people of Bengal to uproot the government of Mamata Banerjee, while reiterating the aim of his party’s to win more than 50% Loksabha seats from the state in upcoming general elections. From Bengal’s infiltration problem to cow smuggling to syndicate, there were hardly any issues that the BJP President did not touch in his almost an hour long speech.
Amit Shah slammed Mamata Benerjee and Tdinamool Congress for opposing both the NRC and Citizenship Amendment Bill. He assured that no Bangladeshi, who belongs to marginalised communities like Hindu, Sikh or Buddhist, will be pushed back, instead they would be given citizenship to legally reside in India. He hit out at the TMC Government for allegedly misusing the funds granted by the Central government, for West Bengal’s development.
While reading out various welfare schemes that have been initiated by the Narendra Modi led government at centre, he accused that TMC regime is blocking them from reaching out to the poor and needy of Bengal. He also slammed Mamata Banerjee government for blocking durga idol immersion and Saraswati puja at certain government schools.
Taking a dig at the Kolkata’s opposition mega meeting, Shah said that there were 9 Prime Ministers on the stage. He said that the opposition desires a weak and hapless governments, so that doing corruptions becomes easy, but the NDA has one and only leader, that is Narendra Modi. Amit Shah said that only Narendra Modi is capable of providing a strong and effective government to the nation.
