Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday that the Centre is selling off government concerns and only Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “factory of lies” will remain.
Mamata said the Bharatiya Janata Party is advertising tall claims about what it will do for the people of the state, but the party has reneged on promises made in its manifesto for the assembly elections in Assam and Tripura.
Addressing an election rally in Purulia district, she claimed that the governments of saffron party in the two northeastern states have rendered thousands of government employees jobless.
“They are closing down all central concerns. Only one factory will be there, that of Narendra Modi’s lies and the BJP’s fraud,” Mamata said.
Reciting ‘Chandi slokas’ at the public meeting as she has been doing in other poll rallies, the TMC chief asked people not to indulge in any communal politics.
Urging people not to vote for “goons from outside”, Mamata asserted that she is not afraid of any intimidation and will fight back if threatened.
