KOLKATA: Launching a strong attack on
West Bengal chief minister
Mamata Banerjee, Union home minister
Amit Shah said the BJP would form the next government in West Bengal after the 2021 assembly elections and a son of the soil would be the CM, unlike the Trinamool’s “family succession” plan.

Shah also said the Centre would not be deterred from implementing the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and accused the opposition of instigating violence.

Addressing a public meeting here on Sunday, he said
CAA did not take away anyone’s Indian citizenship. “But our crores of brothers, who have come to India in the face of persecution and torture, who have lost their everything, whose women faced dishonour and whose temples and gurdwaras were broken, and faced forcible conversion… they do not have citizenship,” he said.

Shah also mentioned the Ram Mandir in
Ayodhya and received a loud cheer.

Amit Shah attacks TMC on ‘dynastic rule’
Modiji focused on vikas during his five-year tenure. For the next five years — with more than 300 MPs, of whom 18 are from Bengal — Modiji is working on the country’s security. He could deliver what Syama Prasad Mookerjee had yearned for: to make Kashmir an integral part of India. The next issue was constructing the temple. Modiji has already laid a hand on temple construction,” he said.

The home minister accused West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee of supporting CAA’s objectives while in opposition and adopting “appeasement” policies when in office, and said Trinamool’s stance had led to violence and destruction of railway property in the state. He expressed confidence that BJP would form the next government in Bengal and a son of the soil would be the CM unlike a “family succession plan” in Trinamool.

Ahead of the state-wide civic polls scheduled in April, Shah launched a campaign, ‘Aar Noi Anyay (No More Wrongs)’, in a rally in central Kolkata, in an attempt to counter TMC’s ‘Didi Ke Bolo’ initiative.

“We will form the next government in Bengal with a two-thirds majority,” he told the crowd, reminding them that BJP had got 2.3 crore votes in the state in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, up from 87 lakh in 2014.

Shah also took potshots at TMC by charging the ruling party with propagating “dynastic rule” — so far used against Congress — although he named neither Mamata Banerjee nor her nephew Abhishek Banerjee who has emerged as the No.2 in Trinamool.
