Kolkata, Aug 11: Setting the tone for 2019 Lok Sabha election and upping the ante for the BJP's political battle against the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC), party national president Amit Shah on Saturday called for uprooting the present regime in Bengal and said the state is surely going to witness a 'Parivartan" (Change) in the coming days.
The BJP juggernaut will roll on in Bengal under the stewardship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the progress and uplift of the state, Shah stated.
Shah, at loggerheads with Ms Banerjee ever since the National Register of Citizen(NCR) final draft was released in Assam, said, ' We are not against Bengal, but we are against Mamata Banerjee. Several conspiracies have been hatched to prevent this rally, but was not successful. '
' This massive gathering is a testimony to the fact that change is nearing in the state, ' Mr Shah said.
Making his intention crystal clear and vowing to implement the NRC in Assam, he iterated that the NRC would have to be implemented come what may.
' We will not make any compromise with the infiltrators as the country comes first to us, ' Mr Shah clarified and dared Ms Banerjee to stop the NRC as it was the only way out to stop the menace of infiltration.
Stating that Bengal has become a bomb-making factory by the Bangladeshi infiltrators under the present dispensation, Mr Shah said the state has become syonymous with scams one after another - be it Narada scam, Sarada scam or cattle smuggling.
It was Mamata Banerjee, who was vocal against infiltration during the Left Front regime in the state, as the infiltrators were the votebanks for the Left, and now unfortunately she was raising her voice against the NRC, he wondered and charged Ms Banerjee with bltantly indulging in 'votebank' politics.UNI
