BJP president Amit Shah slammed the Mamata Banerjee-led government on Sunday, targeting the chief minister on the Saradha scam and infiltration issues.
Shah called upon the people to vote for BJP in the upcoming bypolls and the crucial assembly polls in 2016 to be a part of national development by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Shah added that reverse countdown had started for Trinamool Congress.
“Didi is only interested in politics. During TMC rule, infiltration has risen five-folds. I call upon all to start from assembly by polls, then Kolkata Corporation poll and ultimately 2016 Assembly polls,” he said.
He quipped that in Nandigram and Singur, where 200 farmers were about to lose their land, Banerjee sat on a hunger strike.
“Seventeen lakh people of Bengal have lost their deposits in Saradha scam. Why is she not protesting or sitting for a hunger strike? This is because her men, associates and followers are involved in it,” he said.
Shah urged the Bengal CM to put a stop to infiltration, rising crime graph and reign in her cronies.
“If not, allow us. Our governments in Gujarat and Rajasthan have shown what development is,” he said.
“You have seen CPI(M), you have seen TMC and Congress. Now vote for us and give us a chance to make you a part of nationwide development initiated by Narendra Modi,” Shah said.
The BJP chief said that the party was not afraid of anyone involved in Saradha scam.
“We will do the work of arresting anyone involved in scams.”
Earlier, Shah was present in the last day of a two-day meeting of the party state committee in Kolkata and presented the future roadmap for the party in Bengal.
