Mocking Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s Singapore trip to attract investment, BJP Saturday said “holiday trip would not bear any fruitful result”.

“The CM will be going to Singapore to attract investments. But her trip will bear no result and end up being a holiday trip,” BJP state president Rahul Sinha said.

Mamata will embark on her maiden foreign visit to Singapore August 17 after assuming office in 2011, with an agenda to attract investment in the state. She will be accompanied by a “very high level” official and business delegation.

“The state finance minister is saying lot of proposals have come to Bengal and it will take at least an entire day to read all the proposals. Even during the Left Front rule, thousands of MoUs were signed, but not a single industry was set up,” said Sinha.

BJP national secretary Siddharth Nath Singh, too, mocked Mamata’s visit to Singapore by questioning what will the CM do for four days when her work is only for one day.

“As far as I know her work is only for one day, what will she do for four days, when she repeatedly says she doesn’t believe in taking holidays?” Singh said.
