On a two-day visit to the state Amit Shah said people are unhappy with Trinamool Congress government
Eastern Times: November 5, 2020, New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah kickstarted his two-day West Bengal visit with a scathing attack on the Mamata Banerjee government. Shah had reached Kolkata late Wednesday evening.
On Thursday at around 11 am he took a chopper ride to Bankura. There he said: “The end of Trinamool Congress government is imminent. West Bengal is a very important state. We will build it into “sonar Bangla” again. Give BJP a chance.”
Amit Shah on Thursday garlanded the statue of freedom fighter Birsa Munda at Bankura’s Puyabagan More. At the function he said, “With this [garlanding the statue] I start my two-day programme in Bengal. I reached Bengal yesterday. Wherever I’ve gone I’ve received love from the people. I’ve noticed the anger against Mamata Banerjee’s government and the faith over Modiji.”
The Union home minister claimed, “People in West Bengal are not getting the full benefits of the schemes launched by the Modi government. Farmers are deprived, people are not getting the benefits of health schemes. Mamata Banerjee is afraid that if the central schemes reach the people her government will lose.”
Amit Shah warned that the death knell of Mamata’s government has been sounded.
He later attended a BJP organisational meeting at Rabindra Bhavan. BJP leaders from Bankura, Purulia, Birbhum, Jhargram, Purba and Paschim Medinipur, and Purba and Paschim Bardhaman were present.
Amit Shah also had lunch with an Adivasi family in Chaturdihi. The lunch was supervised by BJP’s Bishnupur MP Soumitra Khan.
