Bengal has set 3 dangerous trends in Indian politics: Amit Shah

West Bengal has set three trends in Indian politics - politicization of administration, criminalization of politics and institutionalizing corruption – Union home minister Amit Shah said on Saturday alleging that the state’s ruling Trinamool Congress had became a family-party. “West Bengal has set three dangerous trends in Indian politics - politicization of administration, criminalization of politics and institutionalizing corruption. of these three trends are dangerous for democracy and other people of the state,” Shah said while urging the people to hitch the BJP juggernaut in order that there might be change. He was on a two-day visit to West Bengal to bolster the BJP’s campaign in poll-bound Bengal. Shah has set a target of winning quite 200 out of the 294 seats within the state assembly. While the Trinamool Congress is desperately trying to spotlight the development-work made by the Mamata Banerjee-administration within the past 10 years, Shah attacked the successive Left Front and TMC governments alleging that the rank of West Bengal has been sliding on various fronts including per capita income, state’s share in GDP and industrial production among others over the past few decades.

Bengal has set 3 dangerous trends in Indian politics: Amit Shah

West Bengal has set three trends in Indian politics - politicization of administration, criminalization of politics and institutionalizing corruption – Union home minister Amit Shah said on Saturday alleging that the state’s ruling Trinamool Congress had became a family-party.

“West Bengal has set three dangerous trends in Indian politics - politicization of administration, criminalization of politics and institutionalizing corruption. of these three trends are dangerous for democracy and other people of the state,” Shah said while urging the people to hitch the BJP juggernaut in order that there might be change.

He was on a two-day visit to West Bengal to bolster the BJP’s campaign in poll-bound Bengal. Shah has set a target of winning quite 200 out of the 294 seats within the state assembly.

While the Trinamool Congress is desperately trying to spotlight the development-work made by the Mamata Banerjee-administration within the past 10 years, Shah attacked the successive Left Front and TMC governments alleging that the rank of West Bengal has been sliding on various fronts including per capita income, state’s share in GDP and industrial production among others over the past few decades.

“West Bengal wont to rank no 1 on many fronts. But today its rank is below 20 on most fronts. Today the state is favorite in corruption, nepotism, violence, in bomb making and explosion and killing of opposition workers,” Shah said.

He said that not one farmer has received central funds because the state didn’t send the list. The TMC supremo has been supporting the farmers’ protest against farm laws and Shah also attacked the state’s ruling party thereon .

“At least 2.3 million farmers from Bengal have applied online for Rs 6,000 a year from the Centre. You (Mamata Banerjee) just need to certify them but you're not even doing that. Sign them assuming that you simply are giving an autograph. Send a letter assuming that it's your nephew’s birthday. it might help many farmers,” he added.

He alleged that the TMC’s main slogan of Ma Mati Manush (Mother, Soil and People) had given thanks to corruption, nepotism and appeasement.

“Such things happen when the state’s leader rather than brooding about the 100 million voters cares her nephew and the way to form him subsequent chief minister,” he added.

Shah said that Bengal accounted for 30% of India’s industrial production during Independence and today it's come down 3.5%. Bengal’s per capita income was double than that of Maharashtra within the 1960s and today it's just half Maharashtra. within the 1950s Bengal had registered 70% of India’s pharmaceutical production and today it's just around 7%.

“I am sure TMC will challenge these data. Let me know the place and our youth wing leader will meet you there for a debate and tell you the source of this data,” he added. (Asianewsera)
