BJP president Amit Shah on Monday targeted the Mamata Banerjee government, saying that only chit fund industry was flourishing in West Bengal and the state was turning into a haven for anti-national elements and fake currency rackets during the Trinanmool Congress rule.
In his first rally — held in Howrah — after being re-elected BJP national president Sunday, Shah said: “The people of Bengal had voted for paribartan. CM Mamata Banerjee had promised a positive change but has there been any change? There are no industries here and the only projects that have been flourishing during the Trinamool rule are the chit fund companies.”
Alleging that votebank politics had turned Bengal into a hub for anti-national elements, Shah said: “Is it a coincidence that every time there is a blast, the house where the blast took place belongs to a Trinamool worker? It cannot be a coincidence. Your party is involved in this and Mamataji, because of votebank politics, you have turned Bengal into a haven for anti-national elements. Earlier, fake currency used to enter India through Punjab and Rajasthan. But now Bengal has turned into a gateway for counterfeit currency.”
Urging people to give BJP a chance, Shah said: “We will take Bengal on the path of development. We don’t practice votebank politics… Infiltration from Bangladesh will be checked.”

                Mamta's cheat fund is going strong, there is no dearth of people coming to Bengal from Bangla Desh and receiving all the paperworks to establish their home and voting rights. Mamta is public enemy for Hindus living in Kolkata. Malda is one more incident to get rid of Hindus in Kolkata, the Union government is totally lost and unable to stop this infiltratrion.

                  The Amit Shah is a visionary and an et to the BJP which is trying to take the country back from the communists, pseudo secular congress s, and the TMC s (Mamata Bannerjee and Derek O'Brian) who are not interested in developing the country and interested only in looting the country. The incompetent dynastic leaders like Rahul hi FALSELY think that India is their ancestral property, are the de facto leaders of the country, and now sensing the defeat and venting their venom using the Christian controlled media to defame the BJP and RSS.

                    As long as Mamata/TMC stay in power the industries will not come to Bengal. Bengal need a change as it is going down hill. Mismanagement and abusing the power has destro Bengal. Foul mouths like Derek O'Brian and Mamata will do anything do defend their illegal deeds. TMC and Communist parties should be kicked out like they kicked out corrupt Congress from Bengal. Give NDA a chance and see the change.

                        What has happened to Bengal and Bengalis, a great state turned rotten under Communist and Trinamool. Kashmir in the making when Hindus will be driven out.

                              Thank you sir being straight forward and sending a bullet to the heart of TMC. When majority of Muslims will rise up against this venom spewing, double talking, maniting woman, sometimes DIDI, sometimes PISHI, sometimes MASHI and sometimes HIJABI BIBI we know that the Bengal and Bengalis will be safe.

                                  Mr. Amit Shah do not follow the same type of Bihar election method in WB. You have already burnt your fingers. Do not attack any body and do not do ugly politics. Also you are made cheap our PM also in BIHAR. Please tell what you will do for WB people and try to get the votes.
