Barasat (West Bengal), Jan. 21 (ANI): Expressing serious concern over the prevailing law-and-order situation in West Bengal, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said the truth behind the Malda incident would be brought to the fore and culprits would be punished.
Asking the people of the state to vote the BJP to power in the upcoming assembly elections, Singh said the Union Government would do everything to improve the situation needed for industrialisation.
Stating that even police personnel are not safe in Bengal, he said given to the present unsafe situation in Bengal, not a single rupee would come as investment.
Addressing a BJP rally at Ashoke Nagar in North 24-Parganas district, Singh said, “The people of Bengal voted Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to power, removing the Left from the land of Subhash Chandra Bose and Shyama Prasad Mukherjee in the last assembly elections.
“Banerjee came to power promising al-round welfare of Maa-Maati-Maanush, but the condition of the State during the present regime has deteriorated to such an extent when none of the three are safe,” he said.
Singh asked the people to vote freely without any fear in the upcoming assembly elections to consolidate the BJP in Bengal and bring about a real change.
Alleging the Mamata Government was indulging in the politics of vote bank, Singh said contrary to the Trinamool Congress’ approach, the BJP believes in appeasement of none and welfare of all.
“The BJP is in the Government at the Centre because of Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, who founded the Bharatiya Jan Sangh that later emerged as the BJP. The BJP will ensure that no Bangladeshi infiltrator comes to Bengal and the state’s border with Bangladesh is completely safe, he added. (ANI)
