Adhir Ranjan said that Mamta is not confident about her victory in the assembly elections. They have lost their base.
In West Bengal, the rhetoric before the assembly elections is at its peak. This time the real battle is seen between BJP and Trinamool Congress (TMC). Meanwhile, Congress leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary targeted TMC. He said that why would the Congress go there to stop the BJP and support the Trinamool? I suggest that Trinamool leaders should join Congress. If Mamata Banerjee wants to apologize then we can consider.
Adhir Ranjan’s statement came after the remarks of Trinamool leader Tapas Roy. Tapas had said that the Left-Congress alliance was not able to fight the BJP. Only Mamata Banerjee can deal with them. Adhir Ranjan said that Mamta is not confident about her victory in the assembly elections. They have lost their base. They are scared. This time people will not accept them.
Food will be available to the poor for 5 rupees
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched the ‘Maa Ki Rasoi’ scheme on 15 February. Under this, the poor will be given a full meal in the afternoon for just 5 rupees. The menu includes lentils, rice and an egg with vegetable. The name of the scheme is derived from the Trinamool Congress slogan Maa, Mati and Manush. Mamta said that the state government would bear a subsidy of Rs 15 per plate.
Both parties are involved in joining the castes
SC-ST population in Bengal is 28% of the total population of the state. At the same time, the Matua community has a population of 17.4%. In such a situation, both parties are engaged in joining these castes. SC-ST areas of influence are Bankura, West Midnapore, Jhargram, Purulia and Birbhum. Looking at the 2019 Lok Sabha election results, the BJP had an edge over 35 of the 56 seats here.
Mamta Sarkar’s term ends in late May. Elections are likely in April-May for 294 seats.
