Kolkata: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday took a dig at the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government over issues like illegal infiltration into West Bengal.
He said that if people give a mandate to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to rule in the state, then illegal migrants from Bangladesh will not be allowed into West Bengal.
Amit Shah was referring to infiltration on the West Bengal-Bangladesh border.
“Should not infiltration be stopped? Does it not take away the jobs of our youth?” Union Home Minister Amit Shah said in Alipurduar district of West Bengal.
Taking a dig at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee after voting in Nandigram on Thursday, she said that the Trinamool Congress supremo was losing ground in her stronghold and would be ousted soon.
‘Didi will be out of power on 2 May’
“Didi has lost Nandigram. The scene you saw yesterday suggests that she is losing in Nandigram. May 2, 11 am BJP will lead the state and by 2 pm Didi will be out of power in Bengal. Under the leadership of PM Modi, we will solve all the problems for the people of North Bengal. The BJP is winning 50 seats after two phases of voting covering 60 seats. We know that in North Bengal we will win all 50 seats in this region,” Amit Shah said.
He challenged Mamata Banerjee and said that BJP is not afraid of playing her game and every BJP worker is ready to fight the TMC challenge.
“Those who are corrupt and who killed BJP workers will be jailed after May 2. Whether it is coal mafia, sand mafia, water tanker mafia, or people involved in cow slaughter. We will set up an SIT to investigate them,” Amit Shah said.
