BJP playing divisive politics in the name of religion: Abhishek Banerjee

BJP playing divisive politics in the name of religion: Abhishek Banerjee

Trinamool Youth Congress President Abhishek Banerjee today held a workshop for the booth-level workers at Purulia, where he countered the BJP on several issues:

Here are the excerpts of his speech:

We do whatever we promise. There has been a radical change in Purulia between 2011 and 2019.

When Mamata Banerjee became the Chief Minister for the first time, she came to Purulia with a bouquet of developmental projects.

In 2014, they said that “Acchey Din” will come. People have been duped for five years. The expiry date of this Govt at centre has passed. Their departure is just a matter of time.

A peaceful, progressive and secular India will be formed under the leadership of Mamata Banerjee. A secular Government will be formed in Delhi with the support of the people.

In the last five years, the Government under Narendra Modi have not even sent 5 paise for Purulia, whereas the Bangla Government have spent more than Rs 8000 crore for the district.

The Yogi Adityanath Government did not pay proper respect to the Belur Math of Swami Vivekananda.

They say one thing in the morning and contradict it in the afternoon. This is what the Bharatiya Janata Party is.

Those to publicise themselves as the first and last words of Hinduism have never done anything for the Hindus.

Chief Ministers of all the 28 other states account for less than 5% than what Mamata Banerjee has done for the Hindus.

The Centre has asked the Income Tax department to investigate the Durga Puja committees in Bangla. Has anything been done to scare the organisers of the Kumbha Mela, the Ganesh Pujas in Maharashtra, the Mahaveer Jayantis in Uttar Pradesh or the Hanuman Jayantis? Why is this step-motherly attitude being taken?

After Mamata Banerjee became the Chief Minister, the Dakshineswar Skywalk was constructed, Tarapith and Tarakeswar were developed and the house of Sister Nivedita renovated.

BJP has been playing divisive politics with the promise of Ram Mandir. The country is being destroyed.

In 2016 they did demonetization. In 2017, there was the fiasco with GST. In 2018, they changed the name of railway stations. In 2019, the people of Bengal will throw them away.

In 2018, when the price of LPG was reduced, they lost in five states. Whenever they lose, price of commodities, LPG are reduced.

They (BJP leaders visiting state) cannot speak in Bangla. Cannot read or write Bangla. They are not aware of the culture of Bangla. They have not even announced candidates in all the seats till now.

It is the duty of the youth and the young generation to maintain discipline and peace in the locality. It is you who will decide whether to vote for Bangla or against it.

The outsiders who are coming to Bangla to dupe people are getting it wrong. The 2019 Election is all about strengthening the force behind Mamata Banerjee. This is the election to protect Bangla’s heritage and culture.

The CBI or ED can never scare us and make us hide behind doors.

When I am elected, then I follow just one religion, the religion of humanity. It is our duty to work for the people.

The Narendra Modi Government seeks information like who is cooking what, but they miss the information like 350 kilos of RDX being smuggled into the country.

Narendra Modi is dishonouring chaiwalas by using them for his own publicity.
