Agartala (Tripura) [India], May 7 : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Sunday asserted that the Manik Sarkar Government in Tripura had done nothing except corruption and destruction and were a hindrance for the development of the state.
"The Manik Sarkar Government has been in power due to the working class and farmers. But have they done anything other than corruption and destruction? No. They are a hindrance for Tripura's development. Whatever money that the Central Government allots for the development of the state, it goes to the pockets of the Communist Party of India's (CPI) cadre," Shah said, while addressing a rally here.
Shah further said, "For 25 years, the State Government has done nothing for development of the state. On the contrary, in every state where the BJP is there, even remotest of the villages have developed." Referring to the Rose Valley chit scam, Shah said, "If the government is free of corruption, then they should give the investigation of the scam to the Crentral Bureau of Investigation (CBI)." Pointing towards various development projects, Shah mentioned the railway connectivity between Bangladesh and Agartala which has come up in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's tenure.
As a part of his tour to states where BJP needs to strengthen its position, Shah is on a two day tour to Tripura.
Yesterday, he said the next government in Tripura would be that of the saffron party. Highlighting the achievements of Prime Minister Modi he said, "The recent election results prove that after independence, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is India's most popular leader.
Since Modi has come to power, the BJP has improved its condition in every poll results and in many places we have been able to form governments for the first time with a full majority.
Even in the North- East, we have governments in Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and a partnership in Nagaland.".
