Home Minister points Mamata’s government ‘a failure’; calls for corruption-free West Bengal

The Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday called the Mamata Banerjee government ‘a failure’ and alleged ‘flourishing political violence’ in the state. The Minister made the statement during a virtual rally, organized for party workers and top BJP Bengal leaders and was relayed live at 78,000 booths across the state. 

He accused the government of indulging in corruption, extortion, infiltration, and politics of appeasement and dynasty politics. Shah also accused the government of not bringing back the state’s migrant workers. 
He said, “Bengal has accepted only 236 trains carrying three lakh people and called the Shramik Special trains as Corona Express. This is an outright insult to the migrant workers. They will surely avenge it.”
Further on, the Minister asserted that the BJP wanted the state to get rid of the ‘environment of terror’ and it was time Bengal chose Modi-led BJP government in the state. 
He said, “Only BJP can change Bengal. I appeal to crores of people to give Modiji a chance for corruption and violence free Bengal.”
Further quoting examples, he said, “Bihar, from being a Beemaru state, is on the path of development since an NDA government took charge. Uttar Pradesh is moving ahead in just three years. If you want these, give Modi-ji the right to take the steps.”
Of late, the Union Minister has been holding virtual rallies in the country – the recent ones being in Bihar and Odisha.
