North 24 Parganas (West Bengal) [India], May 13 (ANI): BJP president Amit Shah on Monday slammed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and said that she has turned 'sonar' Bangla into 'kangal' (poor) Bangla.
"Earlier people used to hear music of Rabindranath Tagore in Bengal... But today, the voices of bomb blasts are heard here. Mamata didi has turned 'sonar Bangla' into 'kangal Bangla'," Shah said while addressing a rally here.
"In West Bengal, infiltrates scare Mamata didi. Just for her vote bank, she does not allow people to perform Durga Puja and Saraswati Puja. If Narendra Modi will come back to power again on May 23, then nobody will dare to stop Durga Puja and Saraswati Puja in Bengal," he added.
Amit Shah further criticised Mamata Banerjee for stopping people from saying 'Jai Shri Ram'.
"The infiltrates tell Mamata didi not to allow people to say 'Jai Shri Ram'. Mamata didi gets angry if someone chants Jai Shri Ram. I am chanting Jai Shri Ram here today. Nobody can stop us from doing that," he said. (ANI)
