Union Home Minister and BJP leader Amit Shah has leveled one allegation after another against the West Bengal chief minister and the state government at a meeting in Midnapore on Saturday. He said that the people of Bengal were not given the benefit of multiple central projects. But Trinamool MP Derek O’Brien tweeted on Sunday that several of his allegations were counter-allegations. At the same time, the state panchayat minister Subrata Mukherjee called a press conference and corrected the wrong information of the Union minister. On this day, one after another, they have presented seven ‘untrue’ statements of Amit Shah and ‘correct information’.
In a tweet on the same day, Derek accused the BJP of being a ‘tourist party’ and Amit Shah a ‘leader’ of the party, alleging that he had lowered his standard by presenting seven false information in a speech. In the first of the seven ‘fact checks’, Derek O’Brien and Subrata Mukherjee mention Amit Shah’s allegations against Mamata Banerjee.
On Saturday, the Union Home Minister said, “Mamata Banerjee herself left the Congress for another party and today she is attacking others for leaving the party.” He left the Congress in 1996 and formed a new party called the All India Trinamool Congress. Informing about this on the same day, Subrata Mukherjee said, “We are shocked if the person whose place is after the Prime Minister of that country says this.”
Amit Shah further alleges that ‘the people of Bengal are being deprived of the’ Ayushman Bharat ‘project.’ Began. Under ‘Swasthyasathi’, 1.84 crore families have received health insurance facility of Rs 5 lakh per annum. Better services are being provided through this ‘Health Partner’ card named after the girls of the house.
Amit Shah further said that the West Bengal government is depriving the farmers from the central project ‘PM Kisan’. But as a matter of fact, the grassroots claim that under the ‘Rikrishakbandhu’ project, the farmers of Bengal get an annual subsidy of Rs 5,000 per acre. But in ‘EPM Kisan’7 only 1214 rupees per acre was given. Apart from this, the West Bengal government pays the full premium on behalf of the farmers in the case of ‘grain insurance’. Not a single penny is taken from the farmers. But part of the premium in the Centre’s ‘EMPFBY’ project is taken from the farmers.
Amit Shah demanded from the meeting yesterday, “300 BJP workers have been killed in a year and a half.” Done. Even suicide deaths are being run as political assassinations and attempts are being made to further misrepresent this numerology to the people. Since 1996, 1,026 grassroots activists have been killed in political clashes. At the same time, the Trinamool alleges that the BJP has a criminal record against 117 sitting Lok Sabha MPs.
BJP and Amit Shah alleged that Narendra Modi sent food grains to the people of Bengal but the grassroots activists took them for themselves. But what has really happened? Arrangements have been made for about 100 million people to get free rations by June 2021 under the Trinamool North, Bengal’s ‘Eaters’ program. Subrata Mukherjee claims that it is an all-time record in the history of India. This has not happened in any state of India
The state government did not provide adequate security to BJP all-India president JP Nadda during his visit to Bengal, Amit Shah said on Saturday. But Derek and Subrata denied the allegations, saying the West Bengal government had provided ‘AZ Plus’ security for JP Nadda. However, as many convoys of vehicles followed him, problems arose in the ‘AZ Plus’ security system.
In the words of Amit Shah, “Unarendra Modi has arranged housing for the poor people of Bengal.” But the Trinamool has claimed that the Center and the state government pay 60 per cent and 40 per cent, respectively, to build a house. Between 2011 and 2020, the state government built 33 lakh 6 thousand houses. For which 39 thousand 993 crore taka has been spent. And under the ‘Rigitanjali’ project, 3 lakh 90 thousand houses have been constructed at a cost of Tk 3550 crore. The state has built 430,000 houses at a cost of Tk 6,000 crore in the ‘House for All’ project. Presenting this information on this day, Subrata Mukherjee said, “I hope Amit Shah will correct his mistakes in his next meeting and present the correct information to the people.”
