Reaching Tehata in West Bengal, Union Home Minister Amit Shah addressed the public meeting. During this time, he has once again claimed a major victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state. He has made a big statement about the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). He has claimed that citizenship will be given to Matua, Namasudra and such communities. He also raised the issue of infiltration in the state.
Shah, who reached Tehatta in Nadia district on Friday, said, 'I wish all of you a very happy New Year of Bengal today. We have entered the new year and with the departure of Didi on 2 May, Sonar is about to enter the new era of Bangla as well. During this, he also hit back at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. He said 'Rahul Baba asks about BJP's DNA. I would like to tell them that. D-Development, N-Nationalism, A-Self-reliant India.
On the issue of infiltration, Shah said, 'Intruders take away the jobs of our youth and the food of the poor. If infiltration in Bengal is not controlled, then it will be a threat not only to Bengal but to the whole country. He also targeted the Chief Minister of the state Mamata Banerjee fiercely on the issue of citizenship. He said, "Should Matua, Namasudra and other such communities not get citizenship." Didi says that as long as she remains in power, she will not get citizenship. He has promised citizenship to these communities under the CAA. Shah said, 'As soon as we come to power, BJP will give citizenship under CAA to such communities as soon as possible.'
BJP national president Jagat Prakash Nadda has also reached West Bengal today. During the public meeting in Ketugram, he has put a question mark on the state government. He said, 'We had heard that Mamta ji used to talk about mother, mother and mother. But in 10 years, we saw that neither the mother was worried, neither the mother was protected nor the man was protected. He has accused TMC leaders of being anti-Dalit.
Nadda said, 'Just a few days ago, a leader of Mamta ji said such abuses to Dalits, which we cannot say. Said that no matter how much you give them, they are sold. But Mamta ji did not condemn her till date. All TMC leaders, including Mamta ji, are anti-Dalit. Voting is going on in 294 seats in Bengal. The counting process will begin on May 2.
