West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress today called Amit Shah a “rioteer” and said the people would give him a “befitting reply” for trying to foment lawlessness in the state and making wild allegations against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool Secretary General Partha Chatterjee also said that he is an empty vessel that sounds much.
“He is an empty vessel that sounds much. He is being fed wrong information about Bengal’s politics, and he is indulging in big talk. All his enthusiasm will come to an end after the 2019 general elections,” Trinamool Secretary General Partha Chatterjee told reporters here.
Chatterjee was responding to Shah’s all out attack on the Trinamool from a public meeting in Purulia, where he claimed the BJP will win 22 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in Bengal in next year’s general election.
Shah ridiculed Baneree’s efforts to cobble up an anti-BJP alliance ahead of the general elections, and advised her to first concentrate on Bengal, as ground was slipping from under her feet. He also lambasted the Trinamool government for committing atrocities on BJP activists, failure to curb infiltration, cross border smuggling of drugs, rise of ‘Syndicate raj’ in Bengal and the violence during the Panchayat polls.
