"BJP’s ‘achhe din’ is an empty promise": Mamata at Ranibandh

Ranibandh, May 7 (UNI) Trinamool Congress Chairperson Mamata Banerjee today

said the BJP’s promise of ‘achhe din’ has been an empty promise, and so not a single

vote should go to it.

Addressing an election rally here, she said, " The BJP’s promise of ‘achhe din’ has

been an empty promise. Neither has the BJP Government given Rs 15 lakh to each

citizen nor jobs, as promised – on the other hand, 12,000 farmers committed suicide

out of desperation."

"These areas are not new to me. I have been coming here for many years, much

before I became the chief minister. Once these areas were the hub of Maoist terror,

but no longer are they so. And it is our government that has done it, giving relief to

the people, " Ms Banerjee stated.

" The BJP could not do it. We cleaned up the area of Maoist menace. I am happy

that my Adivasi brothers and sisters and others here are again living in peace, " the

chief minister asserted.

" One of the most important projects being done here is piped drinking water for

the people. The Rs 3,000-crore project being implemented by our government

would be completed in one year. Already a part of it has been completed, " the

Trinamool supremo averred.

" I came here today to speak not of my achievements but of the Centre’s. And

despite being in power for five years, it has done nothing but instigate riots –

between people of different religions, different castes and creeds, " she

observed.

" We have started crop insurance upto Rs 5,000 per year against croplands for

every farmer, money to the family of a farmer if he dies an untimely death, " she

noted.

" We have done everything, but this election is to determine whether Modi would

remain in Delhi or not. I say that he should not. The Centre, despite my telling them

so many times, has not enabled the DVC to release less water during rains and

floods so that vast areas in Bankura district are not washed away, " Ms Banerjee

commented.

" Narendra Modi has given neither food, nor clothes or shelter. He has made three

crore people jobless. Earlier, he called himself a chaiwallah. Now, he no longer calls

himself so because for five years he just toured the world and his party’s people

went around beating and threatening people, " she quipped.

" The RSS’ Nathuram Godse killed Gandhiji, and now the RSS and BJP are

teaching morality to the people. What an irony! " she said and added, " Now Modi

calls himself a chowkidar, lekin chowkidar chor hain aur jhoota hain. "
