New Delhi: A day after Union Home Minister Amit Shah met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over lunch at Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik’s home, Shah slammed Mamata and gave a clarion call to the voters of West Bengal which will be going to the polls next year. ‘Aar Noy Annay’, the BJP leader said in Bengali, which seems to the BJP’s punchline that translates to ‘Injustice, not any more’.

“I want to ask Mamata didi why are you opposing the CAA. Why you don’t have any sympathy for Matuas and Namashudras? Why infiltrators are dearer to you?” Shah said. Blaming the Mamata Banerjee government for West Bengal lagging behind in the development chart, Shah urged the people to vote for the BJP. “Didn’t you give the communists decades? Didn’t you give Mamata Didi 10 years? Then why don’t you give us a chance to turn West Bengal into Sonal Bagla,” he said.
The minister also alleged that Mamata Banerjee was in support of the citizenship law earlier. “This will help Bengalis. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is helping so many Bengalis to gain citizenship. I want to ask the CM why she doesn’t want these people to become Indian citizens,” he said.
“CM Mamata Banerjee opposed CAA, ensured riots take place in West Bengal. CAA will not take away anybody’s citizenship. The Opposition terrorising refugees by creating false perceptions. Didi will not be able to stop us from granting citizenship to refugees,” Shah added.
The minister also launched a missed call campaign ahead of the municipal elections scheduled to be held this year. “How many of you are carrying mobile phones? Shall I give you the number to join the campaigning? It’s 9727294294,” the minister said officially sounding the poll bugle.
