BJP Govt Failed to Tackle Maoists: Mamata Banerjeeby Opinion Express November 28, 2018 0 comments
Continuing her attack on the BJP-led government, Mamata Banerjee accused it for failing miserably on different fronts.
Picking up from where she left at Jhargram on Monday, the Chief Minister told an audience in Purulia how the saffron outfit’s tall claims of acche din (good days) had ended up in a “big cipher.”
Mamata who on Monday attacked the BJP for selling Rama for electoral gains, on Tuesday said how “they (BJP) have failed to tackle Maoist problem in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand whereas we have been able to eradicate the problem completely from Jangalmahal areas of Bengal which was once a hotbed of Maoists.”
Wondering what brought the saffron workers to Purulia and other Jangalmahal areas in the time of peace Mamata said “there was a time when the whole area was scared of Maoists as there was bloodshed everywhere. At that time none had the courage to come to this area. Only I came to these areas repeatedly. But now they (BJP) are trying to create disturbance by bringing in people from Jharkhand.”
Attacking the Centre for ruining Indian economy by imposing demonetisation and GST Mamata said “Notebandi has literally ruined the Indian businessmen. The whole industry has fallen flat on its face” adding GST only added salt to injury by “sucking out whatever was left within the moribund economy.”
This Government does no work save intimidating the people Mamata said. “This is a Government which has no work except intimidating the businessmen who do not fall in line with them. Today you raise a question and tomorrow they will send Enforcement Directorate, Central Bureau of Investigation and Income Tax to your house. Today the entire industry is afraid of them,” she said.
The Chief Minister who was touring south Bengal districts to take stock of the developmental works said how the Centre only made false slogans of Beti Bachao Beti Padhao “but in reality they do nothing,” whereas her Government with limited means had been implemented schemes for women, girl children and poor that had been hailed all over the world.
Speaking to people in an area bordering Jharkhand Mamata said the neighbouring State had everything that a rich State should possess “but due to the lack of intellect and planning of their leaders they have failed to raise the level of their economy.”
Meanwhile, in an unrelated development the opposition Left and the Congress on Tuesday staged a walkout from the Bengal Assembly after their demand for a no-trust motion was turned down by Speaker Biman Banerjee.
