Kolkata: Trinamul Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee on Sunday lambasted the BJP over the saffron party’s performance on its completion of four years in power at the Centre.

Slamming the Modi government for reducing interest rate on retirement schemes including public provident fund continuously he claimed that the state government under the leadership of chief minister Mamata Banerjee progressed better than the Centre.

Bantering the Modi government’s popular slogan the state education minister alleged, “Achchhe Din has ceased to exist. It has become only darker by the day. The head of the Indians hang in shame the way the central government tried to sell the country.” He was talking to the media after inaugurating Education Interface 2018 at the Netaji Indoor Stadium.

Drawing a comparison with the Trinamul government which has completed seven years in power in the state Mr Chatterjee elaborated, “I will give 10 out of 10 in a rating to the state government for its performance in a short time if it is compared with the government.”

The Trinamul minister pointed out that the BJP has failed to bring back black money from abroad. “They gave an word to deposit `15 lakhs in every citizen’s bank account. They could not even give fifteen paise,” he noted while referring to the failure in the demonetisation driver. He argued, “The BJP government has created a society based on blood. But our government has pulled those who were downtrodden to the forefront. It is beyond imagination how efficiently our chief minister has provided services in all fields. The rural economy has grown by leaps and bounds while massive employments were created in the rural areas.”

Mr Chatterjee mentioned, “Let them (BJP) compare the state government’s performance of last seven years here. Let the Centre have a look at it. Forget survey. The state’s economy has marched ahead in its real terms while the BJP has pushed back the country at the national level. Thousands of farmers were forced to commit suicide. Employment generation which was promised was not given.”
