Second anniversary of the government in West Bengal
The West Bengal BJP May 22 presented its chargesheet against the state government on its 2nd anniversary. Briefing the members of the print and electronic media over it at the party’s State Headquarters State President Sri Rahul Sinha accused the state government of failing the people’s mandate on several fronts. Sri Sinha charged the ruling TMC government of gross corruption, failing to maintain law and order, mis-governance, failing to utilize central funds on development schemes and being vindictive against opposition parties and its carders very much in line with the style of the erstwhile CPM government.
On corruption the BJP highlighted the ‘Trident’ & the ‘Chitfund’ scams. Rahul Sinha claimed that barring the BJP all other political parties of all colours and shades are privy to the loot of the Chit-fund companies and their corrupt practices. He expressed surprise at the reluctance of the state to hand over the investigations to the CBI. He also reminded all that it was the BJP and the BJP alone that has been warning the government of this impending loot being orchestrated in Bengal in the name of these chitfunds. Even last year while presenting the chargesheet on the 1st anniversary of the TMC government the BJP drew the attention of all concerned towards these Chitfund loot and even mentioning the ‘Saradha Group’ in particular.
Earlier a committee was appointed under the chairmanship of ex-State President and National Executive member Prof. Tathagata Roy to prepare this ‘Chargesheet’.
The six point question that the BJP posed to Mamata are:
Using the police and the administration in a partisan manner to help the ruling party and victimize the opposition activists very much in line with the erstwhile left government.
In-spite of declaring its intent to announce a ‘Industrial policy’ nothing has come so far.
‘Bengal Leads’ investors’ meet has been a huge failure and only ended up draining the constrained state coffers further.
No concrete step has been initiated for fighting unemployment.
Nakedly perusing minority appeasement.
The state government being hand-in-gloves with the ‘Chit-fund’ companies.
Attempting to shield the culprits of the ‘Chit-fund’ scam. (VSK Kolkata
