Shah accuses CM of supporting anti-national activities in state
With the Assembly elections a few months away, BJP all India president Amit Shah on Monday accused Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of supporting anti-national activities because of her narrow vote bank politics.
“West Bengal is now the gateway to illegal arms and counterfeit notes,” Shah said while addressing a rally at Dumurjala stadium in Howrah.
Without showing any proof, he alleged that Trinamool Congress supporters were behind every bomb explosion.
“Be it Khagragarh bomb blast that took place on October 2, 2014 or the recent incident in Birbhum in which two people were killed, Trinanool Congress had links.”
Interestingly, after making such a strong accusation, Shah did not say a single word on the arrest of Mamata Banerjee which should have been a natural fall out.
He maintained that if the BJP comes to power in 2016 Assembly elections, then “anti-nationals” will be thrown out of the country. The Centre will start border fencing soon to stop infiltration.
Shah said the morale of police had gone down and people were attacking police station. The Chief Minister has totally failed to give protection to people, he remarked.
Shah said under Mamata Banerjee rule, the financial condition of the state had gone from bad to worse. He said the only industry that had flourished in West Bengal was chit fund and companies like Saradha and Rose Valley had received patronage from the Trinamool.
“The people of West Bengal know who have purchased Mamata didi’s paintings,” he said.
Shah remarked that no development had taken place in West Bengal. From law and order situation to education, West Bengal has presented a gloomy picture.
Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s grand nephew Chandra Bose also joined state BJP on Monday.
