Kolkata: BJP leader and union water resources minister Uma Bharti launched a scathing attack on Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday, alleging that the later was indulging in politics of hatred and deviating from development works in Bengal.
She held the Bengal administration responsible for not being able to access central funds. “The project reports that are being sent on behalf of the Bengal government are often incomplete and erroneous. So we are unable to disburse central funds. The administrative officials here seem to be in a sort of disillusionment. They do not have somebody to guide them properly,” Ms Bharti said at a programme in Howrah.
Responding to a query on armed rallies across the state on the day of Ram Navami, she said, “Such rallies are part of our tradition.
The police should ensure that there is no deterioration in law and order. This is fundamental politics on the part of Mamata Banerjee’s government to slap cases against BJP leaders.” She further asserted that BJP will form the government in Bengal “with a clear majority” in the next assembly polls.
“BJP will form the government in Bengal with a clear majority, just as we saw in Assam and in Haryana where, once upon a time, only one or two of our MLAs used to be elected. In the forthcoming assembly polls in the state, the BJP will win with a clear majority,” Ms Bharti said.
Her comments came in the wake of her party finishing second in the by-poll to Kanthi Dakshin assembly constituency in Purba Midnapur district, in which the TMC won.
