The war of words between TMC and BJP continues

News Desk: Before the upcoming 2021 election in West Bengal the two contenders – TMC and BJP – are in their full mode to defame each other politically. The two have always been in the news for their controversial statements on each other. On Monday state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said that he’ll turn West Bengal into Gujarat for the better. Ghosh said

“Didimoni often says we are trying to turn Bengal into Gujarat. I say we will certainly do so and turn it into a developed State. Our men and women won’t have to go there for work. We will ensure employment opportunities are available here.

The students from West Bengal, who used to dominate the civil services examination, do not feature in the merit list. The Left Front government is responsible for it.

Biman babu and Buddha babu have politicised the people in a way that we now produce migrant workers who move to Gujarat for jobs, and not doctors, engineers or professors.

Attempts are being made to turn Bengal into Kashmir. Every district has turned into bomb manufacturing units. Operatives of al-Queda, Jamaat are setting up their bases here”

Senior TMC leader and state minister Firhad Hakim reacted to this statement of Ghosh. He said

“I urge Dilip Ghosh to leave Bengal and settle down in Gujarat.

Around 2,000 people were killed in the Gujarat riots in 2002. If we turn Bengal into Gujarat then people will fear of dying in encounters. Therefore, we do not want to turn Bengal into Gujarat. This is Rabindranath Tagore’s Bengal, Nazrul’s Bengal. People need to decide whether to retain Bengal’s cultural heritage or inherit riot politics from Gujarat.

Only Adanis and Ambanis have been given priority in Gujarat while others had to shut down their business.

Even Nano factory has been shut there. Communal divide can never help an economy to flourish. The country’s economy has crashed so badly that we are lagging behind Bangladesh in GDP. This is our shame. Dilip Ghosh can leave for Gujarat. People of the state are happy here”

The state BJP chief also threw an open challenge to Jyotipriyo Mullick. He said

“BJP will defeat TMC’s North 24 Parganas district president and state minister Jyotipriya Mullick in next year’s Assembly polls. He has fooled the people of the state and took cut money from them. He is involved in multiple scams including the PDS scam. Enough is enough. I am throwing a open challenge to him that we will defeat him. Ask him to pick any Assembly segment in the state. We will defeat him from wherever he contests the election”

Mullick was quick to hit back at the BJP chief. He said

“The result will be 33-0. The BJP will get a big zero from North 24 Parganas district. Tell Dilip Ghosh to prepare for his party’s biggest defeat in 2021”
