Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, slammed West Bengal’s ruling TMC, alleging that its representatives swindled whatever central assistance was provided to the state, from “funds to ration supplies.” The senior BJP leader also said that his Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee has deprived the state of the Centre’s development schemes while speaking at an election rally in Mal assembly constituency in Jalpaiguri district.
“She has ignored West Bengal for the past ten years, and Mamata has deprived the state its fair share of benefits by refusing to participate in many central welfare schemes.” TMC leaders swindled whatever assistance the Centre offered to Bengal, from funds to ration supplies.
Each paisa will be recovered and spent on development projects once the BJP takes power in the state,” he said. Adityanath accused Mamata Banerjee’s government of underpaying and neglecting tea garden workers.
“Workers in other tea-growing states earn Rs 350 per day and have land rights, while in West Bengal, the daily wage is barely Rs 200. The BJP is dedicated to the well-being of the workers and the Gorkha community in the region “he said The UP chief minister also questioned why Banerjee gets irritated when she hears ‘Jai Sri Ram’ slogans. “Those who spoke out against Lord Ram met with disaster. A similar fate awaits her as well “Adityanath went on to say.
He reported that “goons” from the Trinamool Congress had murdered 130 saffron party members in West Bengal. “When we take control here, these thugs will be dealt with according to the constitution,” he said.
