Mamata's politics not good governance but anarchy : BJP
A day after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's tirade against BJP's prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi, BJP today shot back saying that her politics of change is not good governance or development, but anarchy, booth capturing and encouragement to illegal infiltration.
Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley said good governance was never her forte, but angry and agitational politics is her strength.
"Didi's Poribortan is not Good Governance or Development. It is anarchy, booth capturing and encouragement to illegal infiltration," Mr Jaitley said.
He said conventional wisdom would suggest that Ms Banerjee and her party's traditional rival in West Bengal are the Left parties and Congress would occupy the third spot.
"Why then is BJP the principal target of Didi's attack? Every day she crosses the Laxman Rekha and uses the choicest adjectives against Mr Modi," Mr Jailey said in his blog.
The Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha said a large part of the vote that enabled her to rout the Left in the Assembly elections were those aspirational voters who rejected the Left's lack of development politics.
The Bhadralok had all shifted to Didi as a reaction. It is this very vote which now wants to see Mr Modi as the Prime Minister, he added.
Asserting that the West Bengal results for 2014 may produce a surprise, Mr Jaitley said that next only to Uttar Pradesh,
BJP's vote share is expected to rise in West Bengal.
Except for a few pockets in Malda, Congress is marginalised, he claimed.
"What then is the cause of Didi's anger and worry?," Mr Jaitley asked.
He said the Congress and Left were not likely to form a government in Delhi and Ms Banerjee could never sit in the company of the Left.
"The current problem is not New Delhi. It is West Bengal," Mr Jaitley said, adding that the Trinamool Congress chief feared a radical shift of 15 per cent vote share that put her in power in the Assembly elections, to the BJP.
If that happened, she has only three votes left, he added.
First--the traditional AITC supporters, second--the goons who have moved from the Left to her side and third--the illegal infiltrators from Bangladesh.
Mr Jaitley said the votes of illegal infiltrators from Bangladesh are her mainstay and for this cause, she had to justify infiltration and abuse Mr Modi.
"The more she does that, the more she alienates herself from a significant section, which put her in power.
"How long can Didi rely on the illegally imported vote? Even if she manages to retain a large number of seats this time, warning signals for the Assembly polls are beginning to be heard," the BJP leader warned.
