Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President JP Nadda today, accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of being synonymous with “intolerance”, and exuded confidence about forming the next government in the state with more than 200 seats.
Mr Nadda, who arrived on a two-day West Bengal visit, criticised the “dynastic politics” of the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) and other parties in the country, and asserted for the BJP, “party is family”.
“Today, I want to recollect what Syama Prasad Mookherjee had said about discipline and tolerance…it is very pertinent in the present situation in Bengal. For West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee….thy name is intolerance,” he said after inaugurating nine party offices across various districts of the state.
Mr Nadda accused the Trinamool Congress government of “minority appeasement”.
He asserted the saffron party will come to power in 2021 polls with more than 200 seats ousting the TMC “lock, stock and barrel”.
“When the entire country was watching the ‘Bhoomi Pujan‘ (of Ram temple in Ayodhya), Mamata Banerjee imposed a lockdown in West Bengal on August 5 to prevent people from being part of the occasion at the local level,” he said.
