Midnapore: National President of Trinamool Youth Congress and MP Abhishek Banerjee on Saturday took on the BJP at a rally in Midnapore college ground. He also countered the Prime Minister’s ‘syndicate’ allegations from this rally.
Abhishek hit out BJP in the rally and said ‘we will not allow communal tension in the State. We believe in Hinduism of Swami Vivekananda not that of Yogi Adityanath. Our Hinduism does not talk of divisive politics, destruction or violence. We also have devotees of Ram in our party, but unlike their Ram Bhakts, we do not organized rallies with arms. Religion for Trinamool is a unifying force, not divisive force.’
He also added that ‘I want to ask the BJP what they have done for Hindus? They started a project to clean the Ganga, and allocated crores of rupees, but they could not even clean a pond. They only use Hinduism for politics.’
It was a turn around meeting of TMC against BJP. Everyone presented in today’s meeting gave the reference of July 16’s BJP rally to criticise them.
