Agartala, Feb 7: TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday lashed out at BJP for not fulfilling the promises made during election campaigns
Addressing a poll rally at Agartala, Mamata Banerjee said, “The BJP have failed to fulfil the promises made during election campaigns. The double engine government could not save Delhi, how can they save Tripura? In the last five years, BJP workers attacked our party workers and injured them and didn’t provide them proper treatment. After that we have taken them to Kolkata for better treatment. The BJP government have failed in their promises and run a dictatorial regime in Tripura under Biplab Kumar Deb.”
“When elections come, you will see the BJP workers doing everything but after elections are over you cannot see them. They do everything for election. The double engine government has failed to fulfil the promises made during the elections,” she asserted.
Banerjee further said, “Everyone is now praising Bengal model because we have developed every sector. We are the party of common people, (we) didn’t discriminate. What we will say, we will do but the double engine government only say (and) do nothing. We have given free rations and all welfare schemes for the benefit of the people. We have given ‘Kanyashree’, ‘Sikshashree’, Aikyashree, Student Credit card for the people of West Bengal. Everybody has been benefitted from this welfare scheme.”
Slamming Congress and CPI-M, she said both the parties, which ruled in Tripura for several years, did nothing for the people of the state.
“We are contesting the Tripura election alone because these parties have no ethics. They only change party to remain in power. You have seen in West Bengal how we came into power after facing violence, atrocities in the hands of CPI-M cadres,” she added.
Banerjee further said, “We want to set up industries in Agartala and transform the city into industrial town. If we came in power in Tripura, we will develop the health sector of the state.”
Meanwhile, all the major political parties of Tripura have started campaigning and some of them have started door-to-door campaigns to ‘woo’ voters.
Tripura will go for polls on February 16.
