Vote for Trinamool to ensure a secular, progressive govt at the Centre: Abhishek Banerjee at Nabadwip
All India Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee today addressed a public meeting at Nabadwip in Nadia district.
Highlights of his speech:
We have assembled here, and that too, in this heat, being inspired by the leadership of Mamata Banerjee.
Wherever I have gone, I have asked the people to vote for the Trinamool Congress to help it form the government at the Centre for primarily three reasons – to bring down the cost of cooking gas and fuels, the latter being responsible for the rising costs of essential goods and services; to put an end to the politics of communalism that is playing out across the country; and to ensure that Bangla gets to keep its self-respect.
Today, I ask you to vote for us for another reason too: To see to it that the murderers of your beloved brother, Satyajit is locked up in jail.
We have to give a proper answer to those who have kept us in chains for the last five years.
This fight is between Agnikanya Didi and the secular Modi.
For the people of Bangla, we’ll do everything possible; we’ll never surrender to the scare tactics of Narendra Modi’s government.
Vote for Rupali Biswas, but remember that it is actually for strengthening Mamata Banerjee and helping her oust Narendra Modi from the Centre.
Achhe Din, Rs 15 lakh per person, two crore jobs – have any you reaped the benefits of these, as promised by Narendra Modi? None of you have, I know for sure.
But on the other hand, all of you have got the benefits of the developmental schemes of the Trinamool Congress Government.
The BJP calls itself the saviour of Hindus. But what has it done for them?
The BJP talks about ‘imam bhata’ (stipend for imams) and ‘moazeem bhata’ (stipend for moazzems) being given out of the money you pay as tax. But that’s a falsehood being spread by them.
That money is taken out of fund of the Waqf Board, as ordered by the Supreme Court of India, and the money you pay as tax, all of it is spent on the various developmental schemes that the Trinamool Government has undertaken.
Mamata Banerjee had decided to give Rs 10,000 as a grant to Durga Puja committees across the State. And what did we see? The BJP, CPI(M) and Congress ganged up the next day and filed a case against us.
Therefore, if we want to do anything for Hindus, you try to stop that, and if we want to do anything for Muslims, you call it appeasement.
The Centre unleashed income tax officials on Durga Puja organisers but did nothing to act against the numerous big-spending Ganesh Puja organisers in Maharashtra and Hanuman Jayanti organisers in Uttar Pradesh.
The prices of cooking gas, petrol, diesel, and kerosene had all been increased but then suddenly came down a little over the short course of the last couple of months, the reason being the BJP’s loss in some crucial State elections.
Vote for Mamata Banerjee to ensure the formation of a government at the Centre that will bring prices come down further to levels affordable by the common people, and GST rates to levels affordable by small businesses.
Ensure all of you vote, and vote for us, who will ensure further development for you.
Vote for Trinamool to ensure the victory of the great ideals that people of Bangla have always abided by.
The BJP talks about Hindutva. But in that too, the contribution of Bangla is supreme as without Swami Vivekananda, there would have been no Hindutva.
Abolition of sati, education of women and many other social changes were brought about by Bengalis. It is because of people like Swami Vivekananda, Raja Ram Mohun Roy, Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar and numerous others, that we as a society are what we are.
The prime minister once called himself a chaiwallah, now calls himself a chowkidar, but he’s neither – on the other hand, Mamata Banerjee is as humble as ever, living in the house before coming to power as well as after.
The NRC has caused lakhs of Bengalis to be removed from the registrar of citizens – if it is promulgated in Bangla, many here in Nabadwip will be affected too.
The prime minister of Pakistan, considered India’s enemy, too wants Modi to come back to power, so do Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi and other criminals, things have to such a pass.
Modi is such a chowkidar who has helped criminals like Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya to escape from the country.
Do you want to vote for such a party? Therefore, vote for Mamata Banerjee.
With pride I too say ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’. But we know the real significance of the slogan, and don’t need to be taught anything by the communal BJP.
Trinamool Congress is always by your side – in case of accidents, sickness, for helping in getting benefits of government schemes and for so many other things.
The BJP has never been seen organising blood donation camps or any other social activity.
The BJP wants to impose an alien culture, the culture of Uttar Pradesh, on to Bangla. Therefore, ensure you vote out the BJP and help Mamata Banerjee realise her promise of winning all 42 out of 42 Lok Sabha seats in the State.
Your votes are as good as precious jewels for us. Don’t waste your votes in the Congress and the CPI(M). Vote for us as only we can defeat the BJP. And on May 23, you will realise the power of your votes.
I request all of you to vote for Rupali Biswas, and help Mamata Banerjee realise her dream of forming a secular, progressive government at the Centre.
Bangla has shown the road to ‘poriborton’, and will ensure that at the Centre too.
The prime minister and his party want to control everything, even keep track of who eats what in their homes, yet have no information on terrorists bringing RDX into the country and killing jawans with it.
They ask for votes in the name of religion. Yet farmers’ suicides, deaths of children in the hospital in Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh mostly involved Hindu people. They seem to care so much of Hindus, yet didn’t give proper recognition to Belur Math, a site of great significance for Hindus.
I too am a Hindu but I follow the real rules of the religion – not the ones preached by the likes of Narendra Modi and Yogi Adityanath.
Modi Hatao, Desh Bachao
Vande Mataram. Jai Hind.
