Our one-point agenda is to defeat the BJP: Mamata Banerjee at Raina
Trinamool Chairperson addressed a public meeting at Raina today
Here are some points from her speech:
In the last few days, many people have been affected by thunderstorm. We try our best to help the affected people. Farmers who have been affected will receive due compensation
More than 12,000 farmers have committed suicide all over the country whereas in Bengal the income of farmers has tripled. The Centre is still talking of doubling farmers’ income by 2022
We have waived off khajna tax and mutation fees on agricultural land. The State Government has also waived off tax on inherited land.
We bear the full cost of premium for the crop insurance scheme for farmers at a cost of Rs 900 crore
Farmers will receive Rs 5,000 per acre of land annually under Krishak Bandhu scheme. We also give a compensation of Rs 2 lakh to the next of kin in case of death of a farmer between 18-60 years of age
We have started a new scheme for flood prevention and irrigation in the Lower Damodar basin
We are constructing a new bridge to connect Kalna and Shantipur
New multi super speciality hospitals, ITIs, polytechnic colleges, agricultural university, Mati Tirtha in this district
New industries are coming up. More employment opportunities will be created
The Deocha-Pachami coal block, second largest in the world, will generate new employment opportunities
Andal airport has already started functioning. New airports are coming up at Malda and Balurghat
Nearly 70 lakh girls have been empowered under Kanyashree scheme
More than 60 lakh SC/ST students have received Sikshashree scholarship
We have started the Swami Vivekananda scholarship for higher education
We have distributed one crore cycles under Sabooj Sathi scheme
We will be issuing Swasthya Sathi smart cards in the name of women. They run the families as well as the society. More than 7.5 crore people will be eligible under the health insurance scheme
This election is for election a government at Centre, not electing Bengal Government
The Left leaders have surrendered themselves to the BJP. We have not forgotten the torturous Left regime of 34 years
Those who were CPI(M) harmads have become BJP’s ustad today
Our one-point agenda is to defeat the BJP
Hinduism is an ancient religion. We believe in Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda. But the BJP has imported a new religion.
Who has made the BJP the owner of Hindu religion?
A mother never discriminates between her children. We can never say that we will support Hindus but not Muslims, or that we will support the Adivasis not the SC/STs
They must give an account of the work done in the last five years before asking for an account of the work done in Bengal
The Left ruined Bengal for 34 years. They should feel ashamed to ask for votes now
They promised Rs 15 lakh will be deposited in every bank account when they bring back black money. Have you received it?
They promised to create 10 crore jobs in 5 years. Instead, 2 crore jobs were lost in 2017-18
He carried out demonetisation and declared notes invalid overnight. People will declare his government invalid
They say Durga Puja is not held in Bengal. People will decide what fate these liars must meet
Use your vote to send these liars and propagandists away
We believe in Sarva Dharma Samannay. I perform Chandi Path at Durga Puja. I participate in Eid, Christmas, Guru Parab as well as festivals of other religions
The goons of BJP are wearing fettis on head, roaming the streets with arms in hand and are dreaming of winning in Bengal
These seasonal birds can only be seen during elections
Before 2014 elections, he called himself a chaiwallah. For four and a half years, he toured the world. And now he has become a chowkidar. The chowkidar has failed to guard the nation
He wants ‘Dilli ka laddoo’ but people are saying ‘enough is enough’.
It is time for a people’s government at Centre
Trinamool, along with other parties, will form United India Government at Centre. Bengal will play a significant role in government formation
