If BJP voted to power, more than 33 pc reservation to women in WB: Amit Shah
 
Kakdwip: Union Home Minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Amit Shah on Thursday said if the BJP is voted to power, the government will provide more than 33 per cent reservation to the women in West Bengal and also promised 7th Pay Commission benefits to government workers.

Addressing a public rally in poll-bound West Bengal, Mr Shah said the BJP will fight to transform Bengal into 'Sonar Bangla'.

"This is BJP's fight to make Bengal 'Sonar Bangla'. This fight is between our booth workers and the syndicate of Trinamool Congress (TMC),” he said.

“It is not our aim to bring BJP government after removing Mamata Banerjee's government. Our goal is to ensure that there is a change in the situation in West Bengal, a change in the situation of the poor of the state, a change in the situation of women of the state," Mr Shah said at the launch of fifth Poribortan Yatra here in South 24 Parganas district.

The union home minister said if voted to power the BJP government will probe corruption in the disbursal of Amphan relief funds, adding that a task force will be constituted to save lives from cyclones, environmental disasters.

He said Jai Shri Ram, a slogan to which Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has repeatedly expressed her objection, signifies protest against the politics of appeasement.

“The Jai Shri Ram slogan is a symbol of protest against the politics of appeasement. It is also the slogan of our Poriborton Jatra (rally for a change). Now, these Poriborton Jatras are being taken out with we will reach every door with the Jai Shri Ram slogan,” the BJP leader said.

Mr Shah said both Syama Prasad Mukherjee, the founder of Bharatiya Jana Sangh, and Swami Pranavananda had shared similar ideologies and worked for the country.

Claiming that West Bengal is existing today because of Mukherjee, he said, "Otherwise, it would have gone to Bangladesh

Mr Shah alleged that in Mamata Banerjee’s rule, Durga Puja and Saraswati Puja were facing obstacles because the government wanted to appease the minority community.

“People need to take permission from the court to organise Durga Puja. It’s after coming under pressure from the BJP that Mamata Banerjee was finally seen worshipping goddess Saraswati,” the union minister said.

The union home minister accused Mamata Banerjee led the government of not implementing ‘Namami Gange Programme’ in the State and promised to bring Sagar Island to South 24 Parganas district.

Earlier, Mr Shah offered prayers at Bharat Sevashram Sangha (BSS) at Rash Behari Avenue here before taking a chopper to Gangasagar, where he will visit Kapil Muni Ashram.

Paying obeisance to Bharat Sevashram Sangha founder Swami Pranavananda on his 125th birth anniversary, the union minister told the monks that the organisation was formed at a time when it was most needed.

"The organisation made great efforts to make people aware of freedom. Swami Pranavananda thought of a free India," he said.

Mr Shah said the path trodden by the Bharat Sevashram Sangha will significantly help India to transform into a self-reliant country.

The union minister, who visited the headquarters of the charitable organisation, said the BSS will hopefully continue to move forward on the path it has travelled so far and pave the way for a new 'Hindustan'.
