BJP president Amit Shah lashed out at the Congress-Left alliance asking how can they fight in Kerala and share stage in Bengal. “They are opposing each other in Kerala and doing ILU ILU in Bengal. I don’t understand what kind of parties they are,” said Shah at a rally in Kolkata.

Striking a rare show of bonhomie, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, earlier in the day, shared the stage with former chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee amid slogans calling for long life for the Congress-Left unity to save Bengal.

As the supporters of both parties shouted slogans in favour of the alliance, Gandhi was seen holding hands of Bhattacharjee, whom the former chief minister twice addressed as “dear Rahul Gandhi”.

A huge garland was placed around the two leaders, the architects of the Congress-Left alliance.

Acknowledging that it is a rare show, Bhattacharjee said as much, “People of Bengal have seen many rallies. But this rally where I stand together with Rahul Gandhi is rare in history. The Congress and CPI-M are fighting together.”

Justifying the need for the alliance, Bhattacharjee explained, “Why are we standing together? Because Bengal is facing a grave danger and we all need to fight together to save Bengal.”

    Amit Shah should introspect what kind of party he leads- opposes separatists and yet for the sake of power, shares dais with PDP in Kashmir. Challenges stan in domestic soil and yet yields to Pak pressure and allow inspection by Pak team in Pathankot.

        Mr.Shah had rightly questioned the Honeymoon between these parties in WB, while criticising each other in Kerala.

          From the day one the Modi govt has been putting blames against the previous govt for everything happening now. The prices of essentials are going up, there is no control on corruption. The development seems to have given a boost to Patanjali products, the black money position not changed, those who criticize the government are anti nationals and the communities and people who had been living in peace are feeling unsecure. On one way or the other people are being who are eating or not eating beefs are treated as criminals. The parliament is not functioning the way in which it should function. Slogans like Bharat Mata Ki jai has become the measuring tape for patriotism. The attack on the Congress is continuing after two years of NDa rule. Narendra Modi does not speak, if he does speak it is attack on the his. In short the people’s faith in the governance has eroded. Modi should understand that he is the Prime Minister of India and not of the saffron brigage. He has no choice. If he means business he should understand that when he can talk with stan, why he cannot talk to the Congress and opposition. It may be true that Congress is corrupt. But is the BJP is free from corruption. It is easy for Modi to say that he wants a Congress mukt India, but it is not that easy. Retaining the chair is really difficult than getting it. For getting the chair also difficult but some how Modi got it. Whether he will be able to distribute the black money brought from abroad to all Indian public, 15 lakhs each is another question.
