#Kolkata: In an exclusive interview with News18Bangla on Sunday, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee claimed that women would be the ‘game changer’ and ‘trump card’ in this year’s (West Bengal Election 2021). He argued that women’s support for projects like ‘Kanyashree’ and ‘Rupashree’ of the state government would be on the side of Trinamool (TMC). Health partner cards are also being given in the name of women The chief minister also promised to pay Rs 500 to Rs 1,000 a month to women if they win the polls.
However, Union Home Minister Amit Shah refused to comply with the Chief Minister’s demand His counter-claim is that this time women are going to play a big role in the BJP’s victory in Bengal. Because Amit Shah is confident that the BJP will get the benefits of the social projects brought by the Narendra Modi government for the advancement of women in the ballot box. He made this claim in an exclusive interview given to News18 on Monday
Rejecting Mamata’s demand, the Union Home Minister said, “I think the women of Bengal will play a big role in the victory of the BJP this time. Whenever there is a violent incident, women have to bear the brunt of it In the same way, whenever poverty increases, anarchy occurs, women suffer the most. Harmful fluoridated water is consumed in 33% of the whole of Bengal But the whole water of Ganga-Jamuna comes here There is water just seven feet below the ground But in the village there is no system to give filtered water through tap And is he talking about women? ‘
Referring to the central projects, Shah said, “Modiji is also constructing toilets.” Modiji also sent arrangements for the roof of the house This time Modiji will also give filtered drinking water If you only talk about women in your mouth, it will not happen Modiji is also giving the cooking gas cylinder Women also know that Modiji is the reason why there is no smoke in the hut Modiji is also credited with not having to defecate in the open Modiji will also take care of the health of their families in the future. Amit Shah scoffed at Mamata Banerjee and said, “If the Chief Minister had really cared about women, she might not have seen this day.”
Some political analysts also say that the presence of women in Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s meetings is eye-catching. Which has made the grassroots leadership confident However, the Union Home Minister is dismissing that demand He claimed that even in 2016, people were angry with Mamata Banerjee’s government, but the BJP was not strong here at the time. Even in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the people of Bengal were a little worried about the strength of the BJP But the Union Home Minister has claimed that all the doubts of the people about the BJP winning 16 seats in the state in the Lok Sabha elections have been removed.
