Amit Shah targets Mamata Banerjee over CAA protests while launching BJP’s campaign for municipal elections

Union minister Amit Shah targeted West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and accused her of ‘triggering riots’ to oppose the contentious citizenship law. Amit Shah said the protests would be of no avail as the law had already been passed, “Mamata didi can’t stop it”.

“I want to ask Mamata didi — why are you hurting the interests of our refugees?” Amit Shah said at a rally in the heart of Kolkata this evening. “You only care about infiltrators. Refugees are being misled and scared… Hindus who fled our neighbouring countries who were raped and threatened and killed… should they not get citizenship?” he said.

He thanked Bengal for 18 seats, which the BJP won in 2019 Lok Sabha polls and said the party will win the Assembly elections in 2021 with clear majority.

“I thank Bengal for 18 seats in 2019 (Lok Sabha elections). Mamata used to say we will lose our deposits. The BJP got two-crore plus votes in Bengal. Mamata-ji, just wait, in 2021 (assembly) election, we will win Bengal with clear majority,” the minister said.

“Aar noy (np more) tolabaji (extortion), appeasement, infiltration, violence… this is the slogan that will change the government of Bengal,” he said while launching “Aar noy onnay (no more injustice)” campaign, which is similar to Mamata Banerjee’s “Didi-ke bolo” campaign. Both the campaigns focus on public feedback and have put out specific phone numbers for the purpose.
