State BJP leaders trained guns at chief minister Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool Congress during party’s state wide ‘Jana Jagaran Yatra’ programme today. While state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh took a dig a dig at Trinamool pricking the AIIMS issue, Mukul Roy, who recently joined BJP from Trinamool alleged that the state government was trying earn credit for the schemes for the poor people introduced by the NDA led central government.
State BJP president said, “North Bengal has got good connectivity with Kolkata both along roadways and railways. There is no reason why a hospital like AIIMS cannot be opened here. Places like Kolkata or Kalyani has several reputed private and government run hospitals. But an AIIMS-style hospital is quite necessary for Raiganj which the Trinamool run state government opposed. Land is also available here in plenty. So, we believe that Raiganj should get an AIIMS-style hospital.”
“Trinamool and CPM knock the people’s door for votes only. Soon after their purpose is met, they forget the promises made to people,” Ghosh said.
Making a personal attack to the CM, the BJP state unit president said, “Those who would trust her like a mother would have fates like Bimal Gurung or Bharati Ghosh.”
Mukul Roy, who was in Alipurduar today, went to a tea-garden at Atiabari of Kalchini and met the tea-labourers there. He garlanded the statue of Birsa Munda too. Roy then rushed to Hamiltonganj where he held a meeting with BJP workers. A BJP MP in Rajya Sabha Roopa Ganguly, former BJP MLA Shamik Bhattacharya and others were present in the meeting. “Central government has offered the state rice to sell Rs per kilo. But the state government is selling the same rice for Rs 2 per kilo which is an example of the state government’s policy to cheating the people,” Roy said.
Ganguly alleged that the labourers in the state were not getting benefit of the Central government’s schemes owing to the failure of the state government.
