Kolkata: State Finance minister Amit Mitra launched a scathing attack on BJP calling it a party of militants that is threatening people and “killing” them to grab power.Comparing the saffron party to that of militants, Mitra said: “An Emergency-like situation has been created in the nation by the BJP. They have created fear among all over the country. Amit Shah who himself is a ‘dangi’ is talking about violence in Bengal. There is no discipline in their own party because they are a militant entity.” Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsMitra came down heavily on Shah after he addressed the BJP’s rally in Purulia on Thursday.”But it is not that easy as the people of Bengal will build up protests against it as they had brought a mass leader in the name of Mamata Banerjee to power with a huge mandate,” Mitra said adding that the people of this country have rejected them for their lack of governance and their win in only one election out of 11 that was held recently has proved it.This comes when Shah claimed that the BJP will get more than 22 seats in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls in Bengal. He maintained in the meeting: “Trinamool Congress chief is talking about the formation of Federal Front without realising that she is losing ground fast in Bengal.” Shah alleged that more than 2 crore people were not allowed to cast their votes in the Panchayat elections. “BJP has secured the second position in the elections and in 2021 it will oust Trinamool from Bengal.” Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedRubbishing Shah’s claims of improper utilisation of funds as the Finance Commission had given Rs 3.60 lakh crore to the Mamata Banerjee government, Mitra maintained: “He (Shah) is telling a blatant lie. If the money is not reaching the grassroot level then the people of Bengal would not have voted in favour of the Mamata Banerjee government. At the same time, the state has received several awards from the Centre itself just by carrying out development works.” It is the Centre that has stopped sanctioning funds for 38 projects and reduced its share for 28. The CAG has also mentioned that more than 30 to 35 percent of debt incurred by Bengal is spent for developmental activities. “But it is the Mamata Banerjee government that is somehow continuing with the project for the benefit of the people,” he said. Attacking Shah as a “communal face”, Mitra said: “They believe in the philosophy of dictatorship leading to repeated attacks on the federal structure of the country. They cannot win an election by dividing society.””The BJP doesn’t know the culture of the state and is talking about violence here at a time when people were killed in Uttar Pradesh, Kashmir and Madhya Pradesh in large numbers,” Mitra said adding that it is shameful that he is relating explosion of bombs to Rabindranath Tagore’s songs. This comes when Shah urged party workers to fight the terror that has been unleashed by the Trinamool Congress alleging that 20 party workers had been killed in the recently concluded Panchayat elections.
