"Bengal government corrupt, indulging in appeasement" says HM Amit Shah in all-out attack on Mamata Banerjee

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday hit out at the Mamata Banerjee government in West Bengal alleging that the state government was corrupt and indulging in rampant appeasement.
Speaking at the Republic TV Summit 2024, the Union Home Minister said "The governance in Bengal is corrupt, with appeasement based on religion which is unjust. It is very important for the security of the country that there should be change, and BJP is fighting for that change. I also request the people of Bengal to support us. People should elect a strong representation from Bengal under the leadership of Modi ji. We want to make Bengal Sonar Bangla again."
"The country needs to stand with Bengal. There is a serious problem there. Awareness has come in Bengal also. Last time we won 18 seats there, this time we are moving towards perfection by crossing the figure of 25. Earlier we had 2 MLAs there, now we have 77 MLAs. We are playing our role as a strong opposition." he added.
In a sharp attack, the Union Home Minister Amit Shah categorically stated that infiltration in Bengal is state-sponsored infiltration.
"Bengal is a border state. We all know that the problem of infiltration is the worst in Bengal. Based on facts, I am telling the people of the country that the infiltration that takes place in Bengal is state-sponsored infiltration. National security is being put at stake there to increase their vote bank and for political mileage," said Amit Shah.
"In pursuit of vote bank politics, they are ready to jeopardise national security. We need to stand in solidarity with Bengal. Bengal is in dire need of transformation. We must save people from misrule by the state. Trust us and we will make Bengal 'Sonar Bangla' again." the Home Minister added.
Lauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah said, "In a democracy, the people of the country answer every question raised against the government. Leaders who scammed the citizens are now absconding. In 23 years of Modi ji's tenure, first as the Chief Minister and then as the Prime Minister, there has not been a single allegation against him. Even the opposition cannot blame Modi Ji for anything, such is the transparency with which he works"
"We have had our government at the Center for 10 years. But even our opponents cannot blame Modi ji for even 4 annas worth of corruption. We have governed with transparency."
The Home Minister also reiterated that the Citizenship Amendment Act will be implemented before the Lok Sabha elections. The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), 2019 was passed by the Parliament in December 2019,
The Union Home Minister said, "This will be implemented before the elections...this is the law of the country, no one can stop it, this is set in stone, this is the reality."
Home Minister Amit Shah also batted for the Uniform Civil Code saying that this is not just the agenda of the BJP, but also the vision of constitutional assembly and included in Article 44 of the constitution.
"Unfortunately, UCC has been associated with religion. Today I want to tell the people of the country that UCC is not just the agenda of BJP, but since 1950 we have been saying that when we come to power, we will bring UCC to this country. Since 1950, 'Uniform Civil Code' has been a part of our manifesto. If you expect the State to be secular, then the laws of the State must also be secular. Personal laws based on religious domination can never give us a secular State," Home Minister Amit Shah said.
