KOLKATA: BJP national president Amit Shah on Tuesday warned West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool Congress supremo that unless she stopped torturing BJP workers in the state, the masses would throw her party in to the Ganga.

Addressing a public meeting at Burdwan, he thundered, “Mamata didi, you cannot suppress the BJP workers with your torture. The more you torture, more lotuses will blossom. The masses will sweep your party into the Ganga Sagar and you will vanish.”

We will banish the TMC from Bengal for the state’s development. Till the TMC Government is ousted from Bengal, our workers will be beside the people,” he told the large gathering comprising tribals and also Muslims who came from neighbouring Birbhum district.

The state BJP had chosen Burdwan as a venue for Shah’s meeting because of the October 2 Khagragarh blast in the district last year in which Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh terrorists were involved and the TMC Government was against the NIA probe.

Shah accused Mamata of harbouring infiltrators from Bangladesh for her “vote bank politics at the cost of national

security” and alleged, “the bomb that happened last year here was an accident. A year ago before this blast in 2014 on Gandhi Jayanti, a blast had taken place in Kolkata. But your (Mamata’s) Government never investigated it. That blast in Kolkata had taken place in the house of Shakil Ahmed Gazi, the terrorist who died in the blast here. When the NIA started probing they became worried.

“The TMC Government is not bothered about the national security, development and problems of unemployment. The Chief Minister always screams about conspiracy whereas her party MPs, minister and leaders are involved in the Saradha scam in which 18 lakhs people were affected,” he further alleged.

Lambasting the Left parties and the TMC for taking “Bengal backwards”, he said, “Do all villages here have schools and electricity? Do you get ambulance services within 11 minutes of a call? All BJP governed states have these facilities.

“Instead, within the last two years major industries have either closed down or left Bengal,” he lamented.
