Union Home Minister Amit Shah took aim at the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government in West Bengal, accusing it of fostering a culture of corruption. Addressing a rally in Karnadighi of Raiganj constituency, Shah highlighted issues such as the school job scam, emphasizing that only the BJP could eradicate corruption in the state. He announced the BJP’s goal of securing 35 Lok Sabha seats from West Bengal.

Shah referenced the recent Calcutta High Court verdict canceling thousands of appointments made through the 2016 education recruitment exam, alleging that jobs were sold for large sums of money. He criticized the TMC’s failure to address corruption and highlighted the recovery of Rs 51 crore from TMC Minister Partha Chatterjee’s residence, questioning the lack of repercussions.

Regarding the cancellation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) by Congress leaders, Shah asserted that neither Congress nor Mamata Banerjee could repeal the CAA. He alleged opposition from Congress and TMC stemmed from their desire to assist infiltrators, contrasting it with the BJP’s support for Hindu refugees seeking citizenship.

During a roadshow in Malda, Shah criticized TMC’s infiltration in the state and condemned Mamata Banerjee’s alleged inaction against perpetrators of incidents in Sandeshkhali. He accused Banerjee of prioritizing political gains over justice, claiming that criminals were shielded for votes.

Shah’s remarks underscore the escalating political tensions in West Bengal, with corruption allegations and ideological clashes taking center stage in the run-up to elections. The BJP’s aggressive stance against the TMC reflects its determination to challenge the ruling party’s stronghold in the state.
