“Today the culture of Bengal is under threat and this is due to the dictatorship of Mamata Banerjee”: J P Nadda

News Desk: Addressing a public rally at Tarapith in Birbhum district, BJP national president Jagat Prakash Nadda claimed that the culture of Bengal is in threat due to the dictatorship of Mamata Banerjee and termed Abhishek Banerjee as ‘Bigdail Beta’.

Nadda said “Today the culture of Bengal is under threat and this is due to the dictatorship of Mamata Banerjee. She doesn’t believe in Ma, Mati and Manus. She only believes in dictatorship and ‘Bhaipo’ is a ‘Bigdail Beta’. He got the post without any struggle. The kind of language they use during public rallies is unfortunate. Recently, ‘Bhaipo’ in a public rally didn’t even spare Suvendu Adhikari’s father. Didi is using adjectives before my names. Is this the culture of Bengal?

Therefore, we are committed to ensure ‘parivartan’ to bring back the lost glory of Bengal. We have always heard that – ‘what Bengal thinks today, India thinks tomorrow’. We have to take inspiration from this and move forward together. We have to work together to make Bengal self-reliant. West Bengal should take a lead by reviving its culture and its manufacturing sector. We will revive the lost glory of Bengal. We have to take the economy out of ‘command and control’ and take it towards ‘plug and play’”

The national president also also hit out at TMC MP Derek O’Brien. He said “Yesterday, when Derek alleged that there is no freedom of speech, our PM wondered whether he was referring to Bengal or the entire country. You must be happy to know that PM Modi has announced several developmental projects in Bengal. On February 7, he dedicated LPG import terminal built by Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited in Haldia and 348-km Dobhi-Durgapur Natural Gas Pipeline section, which is part of the Pradhan Mantri Urja Ganga project in Haldia. Not the least, PM Modi also released funds for the East West Metro corridor, dedicated freight corridor, Rs 1000 crore for tea workers”

Nadda also slammed the TMC over PM Kisan and Ayushman Bharat. He said It is unfortunate that there are people who are misleading the farmers. Mamata Banerjee is blocking the central schemes meant for the poor people. It is unfortunate that when our farmers across the country are getting benefits from the PM Kisan scheme, over 70 lakh farmers of West Bengal are deprived of PM Kisan scheme. I want to ask Mamata ji, why this welfare scheme has not been implemented in West Bengal.

People’s expectation towards TMC has now turned into their anger due to bad governance and poor law and order problem. The BJP under the leadership of PM Modi can only ensure good governance in Bengal. Our target is to ensure good governance and development in West Bengal and on the other side TMC leaders are busy minting money through extortion and cut money.

Mamata didi is not implementing the central schemes including ‘Ayushman Bharat’ in Bengal. Crores of people across India have availed free surgeries under Ayushman Bharat. But I am sorry to say that didi has not implemented the scheme in Bengal. Mamata ji, don’t you think people of Bengal have the right to avail this free and quality treatment? Why are you not implementing it?

I would like to assure the people of Bengal that within minutes of forming the government in 2021, we will implement Ayushman Bharat health scheme in our first cabinet meeting. There will be a parivartan in Bengal under Modi ji’s leadership”
