Kolkata, March 1 (IANS) Attacking the Mamata Banerjee government over the dismal industrial scenario in West Bengal, the BJP on Tuesday began a four day march to Singur in Hooghly district.
Ahead of the assembly polls in the state, the BJP’s youth is undertaking the march to highlight the “flight of capital from the state”, “rampant lawlessness” besides demanding jobs for youth.
Addressing the march, BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya blamed the Trinamool Congress regime for the “prevalent lawlessness in Bengal where nobody was safe”.
With the arrival of the central armed forces, Vijayvargiya assured the coming assembly polls will be fair and peaceful.
“Earlier people could not vote in Bengal because of the goons. But now the central forces have arrived and undertaking marches in the districts. Whoever now will indulge in goondaism will be given a befitting reply.
“There is no need to fear, the central forces are here, the elections will be fair this time,” said Vijayvargiya who also hit out at the Trinamool over the chit fund scam.
Party national secretary Rahul Sinha said the only industry flourishing under the Trinamool regime was “bomb-making”.
The march will culminate on Friday at the Tata Nano manufacturing site in Singur from where the automaker had to relocate its plant to Gujarat following sustained anti-acquisition movement by the Trinamool in 2008.
