Slamming on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday said the Trinamool chief is friends with "dengue and malaria" and the state will not be rid of the diseases until she leaves.
In his address, he asked the people of the poll-bound state whether they want to see the development of Bengal or the development of the Mamata’s nephew.
Addressing a public meeting in Jhargram, Shah said “You won't get rid of malaria until Didi leaves. She's friends with dengue and malaria. Vote for us, we'll eradicate diseases in 2 years... On one hand, PM Modi is working for tribal welfare, while Didi is working for her nephew. Who do you want?” Shah said in a rally in Bengal’s Jhargram.”On the one hand, PM Modi is working for tribal welfare, while Didi is working for her nephew. Whom do you want?"
"Didi has scared innocent tribals with 'Khela Hobe' but she doe not know that even a small kid plays football here. Didi! Nobody is scared of your 'Khela Hobe'. Vote for us, I assure you that Didi's goons will not be able to harm you," stated the Home Minister. Shah's campaign in Jhargram is seen as BJP's outreach attempt to the tribal population.
