The Bengal BJP has chosen West Bengal as its next target and has decided that the party’s national president Amit Shah will again visit the state close on the hill of the Prime Minister’s visit on 16 July.
The thrust of the Mr Shah’s campaign will be the Central funds projects which do not get due publicity from the state government.
BJP state secretary Sayanta Basu said that Mr Shah will join a youth wing’s movement that will be launched in August to protest against the alleged malpractices for recruitment in several departments of the state government, running of the extortion racket during college admission and the alleged murder of the dalit youth activists.
Earlier, five Union ministers came and campaigned for Cent ral assisted schemes; those were launched for the benefit of the common people, but were highlighted as the state sponsored project by the state ministers.
“West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and her ministers are all giving hoax to the people of the West Bengal that there is no Central assisted projects and most of the schemes are launched by the state,” said Mr Basu.
BJP’s SC morcha also launched a sit and demonstration programme. The state BJP executive member and state SC morcha president Arun Halder said that BJP demands the resignation of the chief minister for failing to implement the schemes for the SC people.
“The present government had failed to keep the dignity of the SC people in the state. There has been numerous attacks made to the SC people,” said Mr Halder.
Mr Halder also said that after the state panchayat election, chief minister Mamta Banerjee’s government got to know by the survey reports that the majority of votes were given to BJP by SC/ST people.
“Those who were mostly involved in supporting the BJP had been attacked and some of them later murdered by the TMC-backed goons,” he said.
Districts like Jhargram, Purulia, East and West Midnapore, North and South Dinajpur, North 24 Parganas were highly affected. The houses of the people were put to flame. Around 100 families were shifted to Goshaba (Sundarbans).
The TMC workers have ransacked their home,” alleged the BJP’s SC morcha state president. BJP member Joydeep Banerjee said that BJP does not discriminate between any cast and creed, and the saffron party is totally against the violence to the SC people.
“Earlier, citizens of Jungle Mahal were against the Bharatiya Janata Party but now Maoist sympathisers are becoming BJP supporters. This has eventually irked the Trinamul leaders, who are now indiscriminately attacking the BJP supporters in the Junglemahal areas,” he said.
