Trinamool Chairperson sends out a message of communal harmony at Tarakeshwar
Braving the scorching summer heat, Trinamool Chairperson addressed three rallies today. AT the first rally held at Tarakeshwar the Chairperson gave a strong message of communal harmony. She also spoke at length about the development initiatives by the State. Ms. Banerjee also slammed the Left for their double standards on chit fund scam. Didi reiterated that her party maintains transparency and works for the people.
Excerpts from the Chairperson`s speech:
Tarakeswar is a holy place where the temple of Lord Shiva is located. People from across the country come here to seek blessings of Baba Bholenath. Tarakeshwar is located at the junction of Arambagh, Singur and Haripal. On one side is the Hooghly parliamentary constituency and on the other side is the Arambagh constituency. The holy Furfura Sharif and Bandel Church are also nearby. I want to send out a message of communal harmony from this holy land of Tarakeshwar. Our motto is Sarva Dharma Samanyay.
The scorching heat is becoming unbearable. But the farmers are braving the heat to work in the fields. I salute my farmers, the youth and the women of Bengal. For 34 years, Left used muscle power and violence as means to stay in power. People are still waiting for justice in Netai, Nandigram and Singur. Tapasi Malik was raped and set on fire in Singur. The CPI(M) blamed her father. They can do anything.
Birds of a feather flock together. CPI(M)-BJP-Congress are same. CPI(M) has forgotten Marx, Lenin and Stalin. They have forgotten Vietnam. They have forgotten communism. Their political ideologies have ceased to exist. The CM of Tripura does not allow free and fair polls in his own State, and he says a lot of things about Bengal. Where were the Congress and BJP when people were living under terror under the Left?
I believe that everyone staying in Bengal is equal. We do not discriminate based on caste, religion or language. Now that Bengal is progressing, everyone is jealous. They are continuously criticizing us on TV. The Left Front was the biggest beneficiary of the Saradha scam. Let there be an investigation into the election funding of the Left`s Finance Minister. Who was in power when Sanchayita scam happened? Who ruled Bengal in 2006 when Saradha was founded?
We do not play got-up matches. We believe in transparency. We set up judicial commission against Saradha, we gave money back to the people. When Left was in power, the Opposition was mercilessly killed during polls. Now political violence has come down in Bengal. Jangalmahal is smiling. Darjeeling is smiling. Political killings have decreased in the State.
Several big states have elections in one day. But in Bengal, elections are happening for five days. The answer to all the malicious campaigns of the Opposition will be revealed on May 16 when ballot boxes are opened.
I dedicate the joraphool to the people. Ma, Mati, Manush will decide the fate of Trinamool. I have full faith on you. I am not pretentious. I am transparent about my emotions. I cannot put a false image for politics. We do not play fixed matches. Our actions speak for us. White will always be white and black will always be black.
We have distributed 28 lakh Kisan credit cards. We gave away 2 lakh land pattas. The Left set up only 3 universities in 34 years. We set up 8 in two and half years. We have set up 26 women`s police stations. We have formed 5 commissionerates. We are setting up ITIs and polytechnic colleges. We have set up 256 units for child health and 34 multi super speciality hospitals. We have started Kanyashree and Yuvashree. Bengal is No. 1 in 100-Days Work Scheme.
The Centre is depriving us of funds, yet we are working. The Left incurred debts and we have to suffer. The Centre is financially depriving us of funds. BJP wants to divide Bengal.
Be careful when you vote, Do not vote for Congress-BJP-CPI(M).
