Chief minister Mamata Banerjee is making false promises of giving employment to the youth of the state by projecting the just concluded so called business summit as a grand success, said state BJP president Dilip Ghosh today.
He also challenged Trinamul Congress (TMC) supremo to hold free and fair bypoll in Uluberia Parliamentary and Noapara Assembly constituency where he feels the BJP will win hands down.
“I challenge the chief minister to ensure that there is free and fair election at Noapara Assembly constituency where people can exercise their votes freely. When the BJP comes to power after the poll verdict, the ruling party will get a clue that people have lost their confidence on the Trinamul Congress.”
“We would have never demanded for Central Armed Police Force if the CM ensured that there would be free and fair election. But, it is certain that the Trinamul Congress-backed miscreants will use arms to create fear among voters, abstaining them from exercising their voting rights,” he said.
The chief minister must prove her honesty by ensuring that TMC-backed hooligans do not snatch Voter Id cards a day before the polls, party president said reacting to chief minister’s ‘honest’ remark.
The state president also criticised the huge expenditure on Bangla Global Business Summit (BGBS). “The state has organised a two-day annual picnic in the name of organising BGBS. Every year it brings same investors, same leaders and ultimately BGBS produces a big zero. Miss Banerjee visited Germany, Holland, France, England and other countries she must tell us how many investors came here to invest and how many industries have been set up,” he said.
Mr Ghosh said that youths are here in the pathetic state finding no ways to get a job and nowhere any industry is grown except syndicate business, which is being organized by Trinamul leaders.
“Educated youth are being exploited here as TMC government is keen to encourage syndicate business rather than set up industry,” he said.
Earlier BJP’s national secretary and West Bengal observer Kailash Vijayvargiya demanded publishing of a white paper with data on actual investment in the state.
He said the state government claimed more than Rs 10 lakh crore MoUs were signed but none of those were not implemented. “We have information that only Rs 1 lakh cr investment came to the state in the five years term of TMC rule,” he said.
This year no Central minister came to participate in the BGBS though union finance minister Arun Jaitley, union minister of road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari and union commerce and industry minister Suresh Prabhu were invited to join the business summit. BJP sources said the state BJP urged the central leadership not to cooperate with the state as TMC men mercilessly attacked BJP motorbike rally participants.
