Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday accused the ruling Trinamool Congres (TMC) in West Bengal of “spreading canards” about the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, and said that the law would be implemented once the Covid-19 pandemic has ended.
He asserted that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would not rest till it uprooted the tyrannical rule of the TMC and restored democracy in West Bengal. Addressing a public rally in Siliguri town of North Bengal he also said that the saffron party would continue to fight against the ‘cut-money’ culture (extortion), corruption and political violence.
“I want to thank the people of north Bengal for raising BJP’s tally in Bengal Assembly to 77 from three. The BJP won’t rest till it uprooted the TMC’s tyrannical rule. We had hoped that Mamata Banerjee would rectify herself after being voted to power for the third time. We waited for an entire year for her to rectify herself, but she didn’t change. It is the ruler’s law that prevails in the state,” he stated. AGENCIES
