Manikchak (WB): BJP president J P Nadda on Sunday slammed Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for her persistent assaults on the Centre over the prevailing COVID-19 scenario, and sought to know why she selected to skip a digital assembly the place Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioned methods to fight the illness. He contended that the TMC supremo’s “anxiousness has grown manifold”, after having seen the support that is pouring in for the BJP, and the ruling party, for that reason, has “resorted to attacks on saffron party men”.

Addressing a digital assembly from Delhi in assist of BJP candidate from Malda’s Manikchak seat, the place polling is scheduled to be held on April 29, Nadda stated, “Why didn’t you (Banerjee) attend conferences convened by the prime minister on COVID-19, is it due to your enormous ego?” Modi has also accused Banerjee of not attending meetings called by the Centre on various issues, including the Covid-19 management. Banerjee, on the other hand, has claimed that she was not invited to a meeting chaired by the PM a few days ago to discuss modalities to tackle the pandemic. Nadda said that the chief minister, who also holds the health portfolio, “claimed that vaccines are not available in Bengal, having forgotten that she deprived the people of the state of many essential facilities over the last 10 years”.

“If vaccines are usually not out there, how are you (Banerjee) sending updates on the variety of doses administered day by day to the Union Health ministry?” Nadda stated. He further said that members of a central team sent by the Union government to West Bengal last year to review the coronavirus situation were prevented from working freely by the Banerjee-led administration.

The BJP president hit out at the TMC dispensation, and said the party’s top leaders, fearing that they might lose elections, have “let loose goons to intimidate voters”. “Mamata ji claims she is the daughter of the state, however it’s below her rule that Sobha Majumdar (a BJP employee’s mom) needed to sacrifice her life making an attempt to saving her son from goons,” he said, referring to an incident of violence at Nimta in the northern suburbs of the metropolis.

Asserting that the lawless in Bengal has reached its nadir under the TMC rule, Nadda alleged that the CM has stopped sending crime records of the state to NCRB to “mask the real situation”. Bengal tops the chart with regards to crimes towards girls, together with rapes, he claimed, insisting {that a} BJP authorities will guarantee girls’s safety within the state.

“Extortion rackets, appeasement insurance policies and dictatorship rule the roost in Bengal below the TMC rule,” he added.
