Congress didn’t give a penny to Bengal when it was in power at Centre: Abhishek Banerjee
Trinamool Youth Congress President Abhishek Banerjee today slammed the Congress in a press conference at Trinamool Bhavan.
“Congress was in power at Centre till 2014. They did not help West Bengal with even a penny,” he said. Abhishek Banerjee added that when Mamata Banerjee was leading a people’s movement in Singur and Nandigram, no one came forward to support her.
“No party was there with Mamata Banerjee during Singur-Nandigram movement. No one came forward.”
He also slammed the Opposition for their constant slander against Trinamool led West Bengal Government. “Nothing happened in Bengal for 34 years. Now the Opposition is saying no work is being done,” he said.
Sujapur MLA Abu Naser Khan Chowdhury today joined Trinamool Congress. “Leaders of other parties are joining TMC because they are impressed with the work done by Mamata Banerjee,” commented Abhishek Banerjee after handing over the party flag to him.
