In the much talked about August 11 rally by BJP president Amit Shah in Kolkata, the battle lines have been drawn. And its promises to be bitter in the coming months as well. The war between BJP and TMC is now full blown.

Launching a blistering attack on the ruling Trinamool Congress government in the state and chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Amit Shah at the “Yuva Swabhiman Samavesh” rally said that we are here to uproot Mamata Banerjee, and vowed to go to every district in the state to remove the TMC.

Shah also highlighted the deaths of BJP workers in the state, “TMC killed 65 BJP workers here. If Trinamool Congress thinks they can murder and get away with it, they should remember when the public wakes up, they will have to vacate their throne,” he said, urging people to vote for BJP. Shah also said he was ‘not against Bengal, but I am against Mamataji.’

 

The BJP chief expressed the confidence that in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls in 2019 , BJP would get as many as 22 out of 42 Lok Sabha seats in west Bengal. And ain goal of the party is to oust the TMC government in the assembly polls slated in 2021.

On the NRC issue , Amit Shah hit out at Mamata Banerjee, “We should be worried for Bengal’s Hindus and Muslims because there are no jobs for them. If we don’t stop this infiltration, how will Bengal develop? The only solution to the problem is NRC but Mamata di is least bothered. She is raising her voice against NRC only for vote bank politics. The NRC is a national security issue and for the BJP, national security comes first and politics later.”

“I am not against Bengal but against the Mamata government. She (Mamata) made a huge issue over NRC. She even said this would lead to a civil war. I would like to clarify today that we are not going to stall the process of NRC. We will drag out each and every infiltrator from India.

“These Bangladeshi infiltrators are TMC’s vote bank and now they have added Rohingyas also and are sheltering them in Bengal. The central government will amend the Citizenship Act to accommodate refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. Opposition has to decide whether it will support that amendment or not.”

 

Ahead of his visit there were anti- BJP posters on the streets a and even asking BJP to leave Bengal. To this the BJP president hit back hard stating : “Trinamool Congress put up banners all along the way. Mamataji, I want to ask you, how can we be anti-Bengal, when our party was established by Shyama Prasad Mookerjee on this soil. “
