Change is imminent at Centre: Mamata Banerjee in Nagrakata

Trinamool Chairperson Mamata Banerjee today addressed a public meeting at Nagrakata in Jalpaiguri district. In her speech, she said that the BJP has failed to keep its promises in the last five years and a change is imminent at Centre.

Highlights of her speech:

  • Previous governments in the State and Centre neglected Jalpaiguri
  • I come to North Bengal regularly, because I care for the people
  • We have given forest pattas to the local people
  • We want to secure the rights of tea garden workers. We have formed a committee to look into the wages of the workers
  • Some private owners do not give the proper wage to workers. We will take legal action
  • We provide 35 kg rice and atta at 47 p per kg, free electricity and water to tea garden workers
  • Do not believe in false propaganda. Do not allow anyone to mislead you

  • We have set up multi super specialty hospitals in Jalpaiguri, Malbazar, Alipurduar

  • We have promised in our manifesto that 100 days’ work will be increased to 200 days and wages will be doubled
  • What has BJP done for you in five years? Earlier, Modi babu used to seek votes in the name of chaiwala. Now he pretends to be a chowkidar
  • For four and a half years he was busy travelling around the world, while more than 12,000 farmers committed suicide.
  • About 2 crore jobs were lost due to demonetisation. He did nothing for closed tea gardens
  • They come here only during elections. They are distributing money among people to join their rallies. It is not their money. It is public money
  • Chowkidar only tells lies and beats his own drums. Is he a bigger leader than Gandhi that books and films are being made on him?
  • Terrorism increased by 260% in the last five years. Was Modi babu asleep? Why could he not prevent these terror attacks?

  • Will you be able to furnish decades-old documents of your parents, to prove your citizenship?
  • They have reiterated in their Manifesto that they will bring Citizenship Amendment Bill.

  • Change is imminent in Centre. They will not get Dilli ka laddoo.

  • We have reduced unemployment by 40% while people are losing jobs across the country
  • The BJP candidate in Alipurduar was responsible for violence between Terai-Dooars and the Hills. Their Cooch Behar candidate is an arms dealer, as per the CBI

  • We will work together, taking everyone along. Adivasis, Terai-Dooars and Hills will work together
  • We respect our jawans. And they indulge in politics in the name of jawans.
  • We do not want chowkidar. We want a leader for the country, who will work for all
  • Modi ji, do not indulge in politics in the name of jawans. Why did so many jawans have to die despite the intel report?
  • Why did the situation in Kashmir become worse in five years?
  • We restored peace in Darjeeling and Jangalmahal but they incited violence
  • Fight me if you can, catch me if you can. And if you fail, give up the throne in Delhi
