Addressing the press conference on the last day of West Bengal visit, the Union Home Minister slam the Trimanool Congress government and said that the Bharatiya Janata Party strongly condemned the manner in which Trinamool Congress workers attacked our National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda ji during his visit to West Bengal a few days ago. And personally I also strongly condemn it. Bharatiya Janata Party believes in democracy, and we also endorse the fact that everyone should have the right to raise their voice democracy. Those who are in government have the responsibility to ensure that all political parties are able to convey their point of view to the public without any fear. I believe that the attack on the National President of India’s largest political party is not just an attack on the President of the Bharatiya Janata Party, but it is an attack on the democratic system. And I want to tell the Trinamool Congress that you should not remain under any misconception that such an attack will stop the momentum of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
The Union Home Minister said that corruption is also at its peak in the state. Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi ji, sent 8 months free ration for the poor of West Bengal in the Corona period, but the entire sacks of it were disappeared, the poor remained hungry. Whose responsibility is it? Why does the High Court have to intervene in this case and order for a special audit of the CAG? Why is the Trinamool Congress government afraid of the CAG audit which has now gone to the Supreme Court against it? If it is not stolen, then they should say that they welcome the order of CAG audit. But, running away from it because corruption has happened and their loved ones have done corruption, Trinamool Congress neither has anything to say nor dare to apprehend its own.
When India became independent, at that time one-third of the country’s GDP came from West Bengal and today it has gone down drastically. This graph continued to fall during the nearly three decades of Communist rule and one decade of Trinamool Congress rule. Whose responsibility is it?
At the time of independence, West Bengal’s contribution to industrial production was 30% which has reduced to 3.5% today. I want to ask Mamta Didi and the Communist Party who is responsible for this? In 1960, West Bengal’s determination ratio in employment was previously 27%, which has come down to 4%. Who is responsible for this decline?
In 1960, the per capita income in West Bengal was 105% higher than the per capita income of Maharashtra i.e. nearly twice the per capita income of Maharashtra but today the per capita income in West Bengal is not even half of Maharashtra. In the list of per capita income of 32 states of the country in 2018-19, West Bengal was ranked 22nd .Who is responsible for this?
Continuing the attack on the Mamta government, the Union Home Minister said that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given direct financial assistance of ₹ 95,000 crore to about 10 crore farmers in the country in the last one and a half years, but Mamta Didi has not listed the farmers of the state. I am repeatedly raising this topic because at least before the elections Mamta didi, give the money to poor farmers. About 23 lakh farmers from West Bengal have applied online for Kisan Samman Nidhi, all you have to do is certify it. You are supporting the Kisan movement but farmers in your own state are not getting the benefit of Kisan Samman Nidhi.
Shah said that the Trinamool Congress has become a family party. Instead of worrying about the 10 crore people of West Bengal, Mamta Didi dreams to make her nephew the chief minister of the state.
The Union Home Minister said many leaders from Trinamool Congress, Congress and Communist Party have taken membership of Bharatiya Janata Party. Shri. Suvendu Adhikari has also joined the Bharatiya Janata Party. I heartily welcome Shri Adhikari to the BJP. We believe that all good activists of political life who want to join the Bharatiya Janata Party to raise their voice against the injustice, all of them should come to BJP.
