‘Did you call Indira Gandhi, outsiders from Pranab Mukherjee?’ Amit Shah asks Mamata
Launching a searing attack on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Union Interior Minister Amit Shah said on Sunday that the way TMC workers attacked BJP National Chairman JP Nadda during his tour of Bengal, demonstrates the situation of law and order in the state. “The BJP condemns it and I also condemn it personally. BJP believes that in a democracy everyone should have the right to express their opinions, ”said Shah.
Revealing that the CM candidate of BJP in West Bengal for the 2021 Assembly elections will be someone from Bengal, not an ‘outsider’ as what Mamata generally refers to as central BJP leaders when they visit the state, Amit Shah said: “ Do you want a country where people from one state will not visit another? Did you call Indira Gandhi, Pranab Mukherjee, Narasimha Rao outsiders when they used to come to West Bengal? But don’t worry, someone from Bengal will be the next CM in the state. “
Commenting on TMC’s support for the ongoing farmers’ protest, Amit Shah said: “West Bengal is not giving 6,000 rupees to its farmers. Mamata didi is not releasing those funds but is supporting farmers’ protests. First, release that money. Give him that money just for your nephew’s birthday. “
