  • Not a single flyover, which has been built under this Trinamool government rule could be safe. Syndicates have given materials to such projects—BJP president Amit Shah

BJP president Amit Shah on Wednesday came down heavily on Mamata Banerjee on her home turf, Bhowanipur, from where the West Bengal chief minister is contesting in the upcoming assembly election.

Shah said no flyover built under Mamata rule was safe because all of them have been built with inferior materials run by Syndicates of ruling parties.

“Not a single flyover, which has been built under this Trinamool government rule could be safe. Syndicates have given materials to such projects,” said Shah.

Shah said Bengal has not seen any industry for last five years except the bomb-making industry. Shah was addressing a rally in favour of Chandra Bose, grand nephew of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, who has been pitted against Mamata in the election.

Shah criticised Mamata for giving tickets to partymen accused in Narada scam. He said BJP would like to change Bengal, which, according to him, is becoming a terror hub.

“We cannot have a Bengal which is slowly becoming a terror hub where only bombs are made instead of industries. The situation is horrifying and it is happening in a state with maximum prosperity in all sense,” Shah said.

Despite BJP president’s overture against Mamata, critics say Mamata would be in a better position as in Bhowanipur she is facing a triangular fight. Congress candidate in the seat is wife of ailing Congress leader Priya Ranjan Dasmunshi.
