The "cut-money" culture introduced by TMC in West Bengal will be ended, said Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday and told that BJP’s mission is to take the state to the path of development if voted to power in the upcoming assembly polls.
"This 'Parivartan Yatra' is not for changing a CM, or a minister. It is for ending infiltration and also for the transformation of Bengal. You vote for the BJP. Leave alone illegal immigrants, not even a bird from across the border will be allowed to enter the state," Shah said addressing a rally here. He also spoke about the killings of BJP workers and warned that the perpetrators will be thrown behind bars.
Addressing the rally, Shah said, "This is BJP's fight to make Bengal 'Sonar Bangla'. This fight is between our booth workers and the syndicate of TMC."
"It is not our aim to bring BJP govt after removing Mamata Banerjee's govt. Our goal is to ensure that there is a change in the situation in West Bengal, a change in the situation of the poor of the state, a change in the situation of women of the state," he added. The home minister also announced that the BJP government will provide more than 33 per cent of the reservation to the women in West Bengal.
Shah also slammed the TMC dispensation in the state for alleged corruption in disbursing 'Amphan' relief funds. "The central government had sent relief funds after 'Amphan' cyclone, the money was siphoned off by the TMC leaders. If voted to power, we will probe into this corruption. We will form a task force for saving lives from cyclones and environmental disasters," he said.
Shah also reached out to the West Bengal government employees and said the 7th Pay Commission will be implemented in the state if the saffron party is voted to power. "The financial condition of Bengal is so bad that the state government employees don't get the benefits of the 7th Pay Commission. If voted to power we would implement it in the state," he said.
