BJP’s National President JP Nadda while addressing the rally in Barrackpore on Thursday,said that the Union government has announced that in the second phase of vaccination, people over the age of 60 years and those below 60 but above 40 and with co-morbidities will be vaccinated.
People of West Bengal will need a vaccine against extortion, theft and cut-money, BJP’s national president JP Nadda said on Thursday while attacking the ruling Trinamool Congress in poll-bound West Bengal.
“But this is not sufficient. Bengal will get many more vaccines. Bengal will need vaccination against extortion, theft, cut-money and appeasement in May. We will prepare for this,” JP Nadda said while speaking at a rally at Barrackpore in North 24 Parganas.
This comes a day after West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that the state wants to start free vaccination of citizens ahead of the assembly Elections.
The important assembly elections are scheduled to be held in April-May and the BJP, which has emerged as the principal opponent of the TMC after winning 18 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in 2019, has upped its ante against alleged corruption, nepotism and deterioration of law and order in the state.
The BJP also escalated its attack targeting TMC chief Mamata Banerjee alleging that daughters and sisters of Bengal are not safe.
“Bengal tops the list when it comes to rape cases, domestic violence and human trafficking and more than 130 BJP workers have been murdered. What have you thought for the daughters of Bengal? You are the daughter and the didi of Bengal, but daughters and sisters are not safe in Bengal,” JP Nadda said adding that the time has come to allow the TMC to take rest and allow the BJP to work instead.
The TMC Supremo had on Wednesday attacked PM Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah with words like monster, extortionist and rioter. Mamata Banerjee also used colloquial Bengali words such as “Hodol Kutkut” and “Kimbhoot-Kimakar” which roughly translates into fat, ugly and strange.
“The language which Mamata ji used against the Prime Minister and Union Home Minister suggests that she doesn’t represent the culture of Bengal. This is not the Bengal which Mamata’s language suggests. We have to reinstate this,” JP Nadda said.
