General secretary of Trinamool Congress (TMC) Partha Chatterje on Wednesday made a scathing attack on the BJP for causing an economic barrier depriving the needy and said that people would give a befitting reply in democratic manner.
He was replying a volley of criticism made against the party and the state government by Siddharth nath Singh, general secretary in charge of West Bengal.
Chatterjee said Singh had alleged that the state government had misused public exchequer by giving advertisement in newspapers on its achievements. “Singh should think of the money wasted over the Prime Minister’s foreign trips before making such allegations,” he said adding “ the acche din” promised by BJP has turned into “bure din” due to the inefficiency of the Centre.
He said the Centre had not released the money for flood victims as it wanted to malign the state government vis a vis the party before the public. “But the people in the state are aware of what is happening and will not forgive the BJP for this deprivation.”
He alleged that the Centre had curtailed funds of various projects arbitrarily and had not given any explanation.
He said that it was taking Rs 28,000 crore as loan repayment. “BJP is visibly perturbed by the success of the state government and is finding out ways and means to malign it,” he maintained.
Chatterje said the party that could not fight in the college elections properly was not trying to capture power in the state.
“The party that supports communalism and intolerance has no role to play in West Bengal and the people know it very well,” he said.
He advised Singh to look after his party’s organization and stop criticising the state government.
