Kolkata: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday targeted the West Bengal government saying that when democracy has strengthened in the entire country, West Bengal remains the only state in the country that propagates political violence.
“While democracy has strengthened its roots and has been consolidated in the entire country, West Bengal remains the only state where political violence is propagated,” Amit Shah said at the ‘West Bengal Jan-Samvad Rally’, held via video conference.
Attacking the West Bengal government further, Shah said, “People across the country are availing benefits of Ayushman Bharat Yojana, even Arvind Kejriwal accepted it in the end but Mamata didi, why are you not letting this scheme be implemented in West Bengal. I and the people of Bengal want to ask you this.”
Pointing out on Banerjee’s opposition to the CAA, Shah said, ” “Mamata Ji needs to come clean on why she is opposing the CAA. What is your problem if Namshudras and other such communities live respectfully in the country?”
“Since 2014, over 100 BJP workers lost their lives in political battle here in West Bengal. I pay my respect to their families as they’ve contributed to the development of Sonar Bangla,” the Union Home Minister said.
Shah also paid tributes to people who lost their lives due to COVID-19 and Cyclone Amphan in the state.
