Mamata equates LF & BJP for violence and corruption in Tripura


Agartala, Feb 7 (UNI) – West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday while addressing an election rally here equated BJP led government in Tripura with the 25 yrs rule of communists and alleged both the parties are same in terms of indulging violence, oppression and corruption.


Criticizing the BJP government in Tripura for five years she said, “Before coming to power they made tall promises of development but nothing happened except attacks, atrocities and corruption. Agartala remained like the previous – only one narrow fly over where two cars cannot move together, and a few shops. If the capital city is like this, people can understand the situation of other parts.”


The party could not bring investment, set up industries, or build up minimum business infrastructure in five years. TMC is committed to ensure development of Tripura at par with West Bengal if get a chance to serve the state in the election, Banerjee said, adding, “We shall set up industries, best quality schools, colleges, engineering and medical institutions, hospitals and trade centres in Tripura.”


“I don’t want much but at least a minimum blessing of the people in the assembly elections. I want vote on credit – if I cannot serve at your satisfaction and failed to keep my promise, you can take it back. You have seen the rule of CPI(M), Congress and BJP in five decades. Now, time has come to taste TMC,” Banerjee said.


She pointed out, “BJP always referred to the double engine for development. Actually, they cheat the peoples’ emotions. They have two engines – ED and CBI. When all options failed, Modiji mobilized them and we have been facing the atrocities. But BJP should know TMC does not have a flower on the grass – today it has become a ‘big tree’. Not so easy to uproot it – we reached the level of sheer hard work and support of the people.”


“Tripura and West Bengal are twins. I want whatever service and welfare schemes available in West Bengal have to be made available for the people of Tripura. We are committed to provide Rs 1000 per month to the tribal women and Rs 500 for the general category women, students’ credit card, health scheme, and all other social welfare initiatives to uplift the socio-economic status of Tripura,” West Bengal Chief Minister underlined.


Trinamool Congress has filed candidates across 28 constituencies of 60 member assembly including two in Agartala. The party fielded a senior advocate Ananta Banerjee against Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha from Bardowali constituency and advocate Pujan Biswas from Ramnagar constituency of the city. The party has been expecting good results from Muslim dominated seats of North Tripura and Sepahijala district.


Before addressing the rally, Mamata Banerjee and Abhishiek Banerjee led a Pada Yatra in the city with an impressive gathering.


While addressing the party supporter Abhishiek Banerjee reiterated that other than TMC no party has the guts to fight against the aggressive activities of BJP and it was proved in last urban local bodies election in Agartala in 2021.


“The BJP leaders had been compelled to change Biplab Kumar Deb following pressure from TMC. The people and the opposition parties were suppressed by the BJP government, and the media was throttled. TMC came to Tripura at that time to rescue the people and offer the democratic space for other parties. We were attacked by BJP cadres in front of police but no action was taken.”


Trinamool Congress wants to install a progressive, democratic and peoples’ friendly government in Tripura. The party manifesto also promised to set up a Skill University in the state to enhance vocational skills and employability of youth. Also, promised Rs 10,000 annual financial assistance to 2.4 lakh farmers and free loans up to Rs 10 lakh at an interest rate of 4 per cent to support students pursuing higher education, Abhishiek added.


Mamata Banerjee and Abhishiek Banerjee along with other senior leaders of Trinamool congress arrived here on Monday to campaign for the candidates and to review the electioneering. Mamata Banerjee caught the public attention when she stopped on the road at Bishramganj and stepped into a tea stall on the way of her return from Tripureswari temple.


She joined in making ‘Somasha’ (Singara) and tea in the stall with the shopkeeper and she served the customers including her accomplices. Thereafter, she entered into a Pan shop and decorated battle nuts for the customers and interacted with the common people in the roadside and local markets.
