New Delhi, Jan 21
BJP on Monday launched scathing attack on West Bengal government for not giving permission to land party President Amit Shah’s helicopter at the Malda airstrip ahead of his rally there.
Addressing media in New Delhi, senior party leader and Union Minister Piyush Goyal said there is no repairing work underway at the helipad as cited by the state government for denying permission.
He further said that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s helicopter had also landed at the same place a few days ago. Sch act shows that the ruling TMC is afraid of growing popularity of the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Goyal said the state government on previous occasions also tried to create an obstacle in BJP’s programmes, said Goyal.
He also referred to violence in the West Bengal during Panchayat polls in which 36 BJP workers were killed. He said, this shows the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.
The Minister also questioned the opposition parties which had joined the recent TMC rally in Kolkata saying why they are silent on muzzling of democratic tradition there. He said the people are fed up with the TMC regime and they will vote in favour of BJP in the next Lok Sabha polls.
