“This election is not about my resignation, but it is of yours”: Union Home Minister Amit Shah

News Desk: Addressing a rally in Dooars area of Jalpaiguri district on Tuesday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that the illegal immigrants are the vote bank of the ruling TMC. He also said that this election is not about his resignation, but it is of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s resignation.

Mr Shah said “Am I an outsider? Am I not a citizen of the country? Didi terms the country’s prime minister as an outsider. Her knowledge is very little. Let me tell you Didi who are outsiders. The communists have imported their ideology from China and Russia. The leadership of Congress too is from outside — it has come from Italy. And the Trinamool Congress’ vote bank is from outside — the illegal immigrants. I am born in this country will turn to ashes in this land. So how can I be an outsider? Didi cannot deceive the people of the State for long”

“This election is not about my resignation, but it is of yours” he added.

The Union Minister said that all refugees will be given citizenship by the BJP and alleged that Ms. Banerjee is unwilling to give them the right because she fears that her vote bank will not be happy with that.

“Modi ji has come with 115 schemes for Bengal and Didi has given 115 scams,” Mr. Shah said hitting out at the ruling TMC.
