'BJP needs communal riots, fake patriotism & lies to survive'
Batanagar: Coming down heavily on BJP, Trinamool Youth Congress president Abhishek Banerjee said the party needs communal riots, fake patriotism and constant lies for survival. He was addressing a rally here on Sunday afternoon.
Banerjee said the saffron party has tried to create confusion throughout the country by circulating lies. "BJP gives false data and figures to create confusion among people. But their leaders have understood that they cannot confuse people in Bengal by spreading lies. They are scared of Mamata Banerjee because she raises her voice against the BJP for telling lies constantly," he said.
He said that after failing to counter him politically, BJP has tried to harass him on one pretext or the other. "But they have failed because I have protested against their attempts to malign me," he said. In the history of India, no political party has spread hate politics more violently than the BJP, Banerjee said. "They try to weaken the society by dividing people and by spreading hate politics. They incite one group against the other for their gain. We should work together to oust them in the ensuing election," he added. Addressing party workers, he said: "We are grateful to Mamata Banerjee for she has given us the opportunity to work for the people. We can express our gratitude by working for the people tirelessly."
He said more development will be carried out in Diamond Harbour and it will be upgraded into an important tourist centre. "In terms of expenditure of MPLAD funds, Diamond Harbour constituency stands first and it will maintain this trend in future also," he added.
Banerjee said he will stay in Diamond Harbour from May 11 to 17 and will visit every booth in the area. "We will have to work in a united way to oust BJP from power," he told party workers and leaders.
