BJP wants political strife, unrest in Hills: Aroop
Darjeeling: "BJP just wants political strife and unrest in the Hills. They want to cash in on this and gather votes," alleged Aroop Biswas, TMC Observer for the Hills. In a run-up to the campaign rally by TMC Supremo Mamata Banerjee in Darjeeling on Thursday, the party held a road show in Kalimpong on Tuesday.
The road show, jointly organised by TMC and Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, started from the Kalimpong Municipality. After passing through the major thoroughfares of the Hill town, the rally culminated at Triangular Park.
"He is a Prime Minister who lies day and night. He is a habitual liar. Everyone knows that he had promised Rs 15 lakh in every bank account and 10 crore new jobs. He had claimed that the dreams of the Gorkhas were his dreams. Mamata Banerjee is the one fighting for the identity of the Gorkhas. She is trying to take them forward. BJP just wants upheaval and political strife in the Hills. People have understood this. They will not get a single vote. They will be driven out," retorted Biswas.
He stated that BJP will not get a single seat. "Bengal will lead India. She has emerged as a national leader. She will lead the country," Biswas said, referring to the party supremo.
Banerjee's meeting will be held at the Darjeeling Motor Stand on April 11. It is expected to draw huge crowds, with GJM, TMC and the frontal organisations of both the parties joining in.
"I would apologise beforehand to the schools and educational institutions as there
are chances of traffic snarls owing to people from all over the Hills converging in Darjeeling for the election rally,"
stated Binay Tamang, president, GJM.
Tamang requested all coming for the meeting from the Hills and plains to arrive by 9 am. Elaborate arrangements have been made.
