No difference between LF, TMC regimes: Rajnath Singh

Cooch Behar (WB): Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday came down heavily on the Trinamool Congress and Left Front saying there was no difference between the two regimes.

The TMC came to power five years ago with a promise of 'parivartan' but West Bengal saw no change as law and order situation continues to be poor, Singh alleged.

Earlier Left Front used to attack people and now TMC is doing the same, he claimed.

"Ma, Mati, Manush are not safe in this state," the senior BJP leader said while addressing an election meeting here in Cooch Behar district where polls will be held for the last phase on May 5.

However, he said, things will change. "You note down the names of the anti-social elements who attack people. It is our duty to keep you safe under democracy," the Union Home Minister said.

He said if the people bring the BJP to power in the state, it will stop the "existing bomb making industry".

Singh asked the gathering about availability of drinking water, schools, teachers, hospitals, doctors or medicines in their areas.

The people replied in the negative to all the questions.

Singh then said, "Do you want such a government anymore? We want to change this situation."

Referring to the Agusta Westland chopper deal scandal, he alleged that top Congress party leaders were involved in it and the Left Front has forged an alliance with this party.

He mocked at the alliance saying, "Kerala me ladai aur Bengal me sagaai" and claimed that they joined hands not for politics, but only to grab power.

A large section of the gathering was of Greater Cooch Behar Peoples Association (GCPA) supporters. They attended the meeting with flags of their organisations.
