Mamata Didi is operating a new crime industry in Bengal: Amit Shah

| Published on:

Hon’ble Union Home Minister & Minister of Cooperation and Senior BJP leader Shri Amit Shah addressed a public meeting in Durgapur, West Bengal on Monday and criticized the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government for fostering an atmosphere of anarchy in the state and emphasized the developmental initiatives spearheaded by PM Shri Narendra Modi. Earlier, Shri Shah hold a grand roadshow from Sadar Hospital Mor to AV High School Mor in Krishnanagar for the Rajmata of Rajbari and BJP candidate Smt Amrita Roy. During the meeting, Union Minister Shri Arjun Ram Meghwal, BJP Lok Sabha candidate for Durgapur Shri Dilip Ghosh and other leaders were present on the stage. 

Shri Shah commenced his address by paying homage to BJP Karyakartas Shri Sunil Mandal and Shri Sandip Ghosh, who lost their lives in political violence in West Bengal.  Shri Amit Shah appealed to the people to press the ‘Lotus’ symbol and each vote on the ‘Lotus’ symbol will elect Shri Narendra Modi as Prime Minister for the third time. BJP’s Lok Sabha candidate for Durgapur Shri Dilip Ghosh, previously served as the president of the BJP in Bengal. Electing Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for the third time implies establishing India’s economy as the world’s third-largest, eliminating terrorism and naxalism within the country, and empowering three crore women through the Lakhpati Didi Yojana. Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has brightened the lives of lakhs of impoverished individuals over the past decade. While Congress and TMC stalled the construction of the Ram Mandir for 70 years, the Pran Pratishtha’ of Bhagwan Shri Ram took place on January 22, 2024, when Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi assumed office for the second time. Mamata Banerjee and her nephew declined the invitation for the pran pratishtha of Bhagwan Shri Ram due to the fear of losing their vote bank, which primarily comprises infiltrators. Those who rejected Bhagwan Shri Ram out of fear for their vote bank will not receive votes from the people of Durgapur.

Hon’ble Union Home Minister & Minister of Cooperation highlighted INC President Mallikarjun Kharge’s assertion that other states have no stake in Kashmir, contrasting it with the reality that every child in Durgapur and across West Bengal is ready to sacrifice for Kashmir. The communists, TMC and Congress jointly maintained Article 370 for 70 years and fostered terrorism across the nation. However, Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, in his second term, permanently revoked Article 370 on August 5, 2019. INC leader Rahul Gandhi opposed the bill in Parliament, warning that its removal would result in bloodshed across India. Yet, even after five years, there has been no significant unrest in the valley. During the UPA government, terrorists from Pakistan and Bangladesh used to attack the country daily, and due to the fear of losing vote banks, the UPA government couldn’t take any action. However Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi conducted surgical and air strikes within just 10 days, giving Pakistan a befitting response by entering their territory after the Uri and Pulwama attacks.

Shri Shah emphasized that over 80 crore people have received free ration nationwide, with 12 crore toilets constructed, 4 crore houses built, 10 crore gas connections allocated, and 14 crore people gaining access to tap water. Shri Shah criticized Mamata Didi’s government for destroying the industrial environment in Bardhaman-Durgapur but guaranteed that with Shri Dilip Ghosh’s victory, the shut industries would restart under the BJP government. He contrasted TMC’s plan to shut down the steel plant with BJP’s promise to expand both the steel and urea plants through new investments. Under PM Shri Modi’s leadership, India has become the second-largest steel manufacturer. TMC dominates the labor unions here, with their goons collecting the wages of poor laborers and diverting them to their relatives. Once Shri Dilip Ghosh wins from here, we will address these issues. Mamata Didi has been campaigning for the last 15 days to win Durgapur, but she won’t succeed even in 5 years. Mamata Banerjee has fostered a new industry of crime in Durgapur, with the INDI alliance mired in scams totaling ₹12 lakh crore. Recently, ₹50 lakh in cash was discovered in the possession of one of Mamata Banerjee’s ministers, while another INC Jharkhand MP’s residence yielded ₹350 crore, and just yesterday, ₹30 crore was found with another Jharkhand minister affiliated with the INDI alliance. In stark contrast stands PM Shri Modi, who has served as both PM and CM for a combined 23 years without a single corruption charge against him.

Hon’ble Union Home Minister & Minister of Cooperation condemned Mamata Banerjee for encouraging infiltration to bolster her vote bank in border states. He criticized her opposition to the CAA, highlighting that BJP will continue granting citizenship to Hindus and others fleeing neighboring countries. Shri Shah also accused Abhishek Banerjee’s associates of cow smuggling, prompting Mamata Banerjee’s outcry when faced with repercussions. Corruption and election-related violence have become prevalent in West Bengal, with Mamata Banerjee resorting to tactics like bomb blasts to intimidate voters. However, with the Election Commission deploying central forces in the state, Shri Shah assured the public of their safety from Mamata Banerjee’s henchmen.

Shri Shah criticized Mamata Banerjee for failing to arrest Shahjahan Sheikh, who allegedly tortured hundreds of women in Sandeshkhali based on religion. Despite a High Court order, the West Bengal government did not adequately investigate the case. Shri Shah expressed dismay at Mamata Banerjee’s inaction as a woman Chief Minister while such atrocities occurred under her watch. The BJP government is committed to identifying and punishing every criminal involved in the Sandeshkhali incident. With West Bengal contributing 18 seats to BJP previously, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has ensured the country’s safety, prompting BJP to aim for 30 seats in the upcoming elections. Shri Shah urged the people to elect BJP candidates to form the Modi government once again, aiming for victory in over 400 seats.
