Bengal will not tolerate divisive politics: Abhishek Banerjee
Trinamool Youth Congress President and MP Abhishek Banerjee held a curtain raiser meeting at Panchla in Howrah yesterday to raise awareness regarding the mammoth sized Ekushe July Saheed Divas rally. He has been holding such meetings all over the state from North Bengal to South Bengal.
At the meeting in Panchla, the Trinamool Youth Congress President mentioned that the BJP president keeps visiting the State time and again. The irony being that he is making an effort to consolidate a stronghold in West Bengal without even being aware of the mind frame of the people here.
The BJP have some farfetched desire to remove Mamata Banerjee as the Chief Minister of the State, the Trinamool Youth Congress President said. However, they have hardly any comprehension of the people who thrive on the soil of Bengal or their needs. The people of Bengal favour the Trinamool Congress because the party’s leadership has an intricate understanding of their needs and delivers promises.
The BJP have actively chosen to blur the lines between religion and politics. The people of our State will not support this sort of propaganda, Abhishek Banerjee said. We have a rich legacy of communal harmony and more than a working understanding of ethical politics, he said. Our government will take rigid steps to weed out any religion biased politics present in West Bengal, he said.
State ministers Arup Roy, Rajib Banerjee, Hyder Ali Safwi and MP Sultan Ahmed and other Trinamool leaders were also present in the meeting.
