Bengali longs for change, wants to get rid of Bangladeshi infiltration: Amit Shah
The people of West Bengal yearn for change as they want to get rid of Bangladesh’s political violence, corruption, extortion and infiltration, Union Interior Minister Amit Shah said on Sunday, attacking the government of Mamata Banerjee.
Addressing people during a tour in this city associated with Bengali literary and cultural icon Rabindranath Tagore, Shah promised to restore the state to its former glory when it was called “sounding Bangla” (Golden Bengal) if the BJP is elected to the power.
“I have attended and organized several roadshows in my life, but I have never seen one like this. This tour is a reflection of the anger of the people against the government of Mamata Banerjee. This crowd reflects people’s faith in Narendra Modi Ji’s development agenda, ”Shah told the crowded gathering on the tour.
He said the wish was not about changing a political leader, but about “getting rid of the corruption, political violence, extortion and infiltration of Bangladesh.”
