Kolkata: BJP chief Amit Shah on Wednesday took potshots at Congress-Left alliance while addressing a rally at south Kolkata.
Taking digs at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and CPI(M) leader Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, Shah said, “Today we saw that Rahul Gandhi and Buddhadeb Bhattacharya together addressed a rally in West Bengal. Tomorrow they have a rally against each other in Kerala.”
“There (Kerala) they are standing against each other and here they are doing ILU ILU. It is confusing to see what kind of parties they are,” he added.
Hitting out at Mamata Banerjee-led TMC, Shah said the party had changed the names of many central schemes for the poor and claimed that they were being sponsored by the state government.
"Jan dhan Yojana is being touted as a state government scheme as is the Rs 2 per kg rice for the poor. That the Centre pays a subsidy of Rs 27 per kg of rice is never spoken of," he charged.
"Syndicate Raj" is rampant in the state and was the reason behind the collapse of the Vivekananada Road flyover, he said.
The law and order situation in the state has deteriorated and its women are not safe, the BJP chief added.
