Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today lamented that the days of West Bengal Chief Miniter Mamata Banerjee’s rule in the state are “numbered”. Taking strong exception for not allowing him to land in the state to address BJP rallies, he dubbed her regime as “anti-people”, “anti-democratic” and compromises on issues of national security.
As the government to refuse to land his helicopter, he addressed over telephone and appealed to the leaders of various political parties in the country, who had attended the TMC’s January 19 opposition rally in Kolkata, to introspect on how democratic rights were being scuttled by the state government.
The UP chief minister who was scheduled to address the “Ganatantra Bachao Rally” at Balurghat in South Dinajpur district could not attend the rally after permission was denied for his chopper to land near the venue.
“The TMC government didn’t allow me to come and meet you all. That is why I had to resort to Digital India of Modi-ji to address you. This TMC government is anti-people, anti-democratic and have compromised with national security,” Adityanath said, while addressing the rally via audio link.
He flied that the TMC government is afraid of the BJP as it very well knows that its days in Bengal are numbered. Alleging that the TMC government had tried to stop Durga Puja in West Bengal in order to pursue its appeasement policy, Adityanath urged BJP workers to fight hard in order to ensure that the party forms the next government in the state.
