Subrata Bakshi lashes out at BJP over 2014 poll

first_imgBALURGHAT: Trinamool Congress’ state president Subrata Bakshi lashed out at the BJP for their communal politics and at the same time accused them of lying while securing power in 2014 Lok Sabha poll. He was addressing the party workers at Gangarampur Rabindra Bhavan on Monday.”The BJP had promised false assurances to woo voters before 2014 Lok Sabha poll to rule the country. People have now understood that they were cheated by the Saffron party. What the party had promised the voters is still to be implemented. Recent Assembly poll defeats in five states have geared an anti-BJP wave in the country,” Bakshi said.

Mamata Banerjee will lead the country in 2019 poll. We are trying to unite all anti-BJP regional parities under the one umbrella to fight the BJP. If we achieve the majority, it will not be a tough task to select a unanimous leader. Mamata Banerjee has called a historic convention at Brigade Parade Ground on January 19 where many renowned leaders from several states are expected to address the mass,” he said. He said the Trinamool has the sole motto and that is to oust the communal party from Centre. Praising the state government, Bakshi said: “At present, 47 projects have been running successfully by Mamata Banerjee and there is hardly any house left in the state where the benefit is yet to enter. Our projects have also been patted at the International level.”last_img read more
