News Desk: Addressing a rally in Kolkata on Friday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that the people of Bengal are against Didi because Modi ji brought the CAA law to give citizenship to the millions of refugees who have come to Bengal and she is opposing it. He also promised that the Sonar Bangla Abhiyan will begin from Kolkata.
Shah said “The Sonar Bangla Abhiyan will begin from Kolkata. Kolkata will remain the ‘City of Joy’ and we will also work to transform it into ‘City of Future’. We will make a Rs 22,000 crore Kolkata Development Fund for infrastructural strengthening”
“Several communities from every region of Bengal are supporting the BJP because of the failure of law and order under Mamata Banerjee’s government…The people of Bengal are against Didi because Modi ji brought the CAA law to give citizenship to the millions of refugees who have come to Bengal and she is opposing it. They did not take care of Rajbangshis, Gorkhas and tea/tobacco plantations. We’ve decided to form a North Bengal Development Board for the region….We have come before the people of Bengal with a roadmap of what we will do for the development of Kolkata, North Bengal, for the culture of Bengal and the overall development of Bengal after we form a government in the state” he added.
Shah also talked about the political violence in the state. “The continuing attack on the BJP workers and the party’s state president Dilip Ghosh and the TMC leaders’ silence on the issue show that they are quietly supporting the violence” he said.
“The way Mamata Banerjee has appealed to minority voters to come together and vote for the TMC shows that even the minority votes are drifting away from her. Appeals such as these aren’t good coming from a Chief Minister as well as the head of a party” he added.
