Trinamool Congress secretary general, Partha Chatterjee on Tuesday urged people not to get
carried away by the communal card that is being played by the Centre.
He was speaking at the Sanghati Divas programme organised by the party at Gandhi statue on Tuesday afternoon.
“There are people in the Centre who are playing communal cards by spreading fake rumours. People should put up a united resistance against them,” he said.
He maintained that communal harmony should be preserved. “Bengal is a land of communal harmony and peace and all effort to disturb this harmony will be thwarted,” he said.
Firhad Hakim, state Urban development minister said “Narendra Modi belongs to India just as Firhad Hakim. From time immemorial India is a seat of communal harmony and peace
and the society does not tolerate hatred.”
He also said any attempt to destroy the social fabric of peace and harmony will be dealt with seriously.
Referring to demonetisation, Hakim said that the Centre was trying to help the multinational
companies in the name of demonetisation.
“Poor farmers will become poorer and will be forced to give up farming. They will have to surrender before the multinationals who will oppress them.
In the name of introducing plastic money, the Centre is actually helping the multinationals who will run the shopping malls. It is a dangerous move and will not benefit the country,” he maintained.
