Union Home Minister Amit Shah Thursday launched a scathing attack on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her nephew Abhishek Banerjee saying that the BJP’s ‘Parivartan Yatra’ in the state was aimed at ending corruption by ‘Bua-Bhatija’.
Launching the fourth phase of the “Poriborton Yatra” from Rash Mela Ground in Cooch Behar, Shah said the rally was not organised to change the CM, MLAs or ministers, but to transform West Bengal. He said the yatra is intended to free the state from infiltration, unemployment, bomb blasts, and bring a change in the state of farmers.
“This ‘Poriborton Yatra’ is a journey towards building Sonar Bangla,” he said to a roaring crowd of BJP supporters.
Further attacking the Mamata government, Amit Shah asserted that “TMC goons cannot stall BJP’s march to power in West Bengal”.
Stating that the TMC government has created an atmosphere where chanting Jai Shri Ram slogans has become a crime, Shah asked, “Mamata Didi, if slogans of Jai Shri Ram are not raised here, will it be raised in Pakistan?”
He added that by the time the election ends, Mamata will also chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’. “Mamata Banerjee gets angry at ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogan, but she will herself will begin chanting it by the time the assembly polls are over.”
Laying out post-poll promises, Shah said the BJP, after forming government in the state, will spend Rs 500 crore and build a Rajbanshi Cultural Centre in this region…
