West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday expressed her anger over Union Home Minister Amit Shah's accusations against her government during his two-day tour last week. Responding to Amit Shah's 'zero in industry charge, Mamata chose sharp words to hit back at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader.
"Amit Shah has spoken garbage of lies yesterday. He claimed our state is 'zero' in industry but we're number one in MSME sector. He claimed we couldn't build rural roads but we're number one in that. This is Govt of India's information," the Bengal CM said speaking during a press conference in Kolkata. The Trinamool Congress chief said that she will give a detailed reply to Amit Shah's accusations on Tuesday.
"BJP is a 'cheatingbaaz' party, for politics they can do anything. We have been opposing CAA since it was passed as law...They (BJP) can't decide the fate of citizens, let them decide their own fate. We are against CAA, NPR and NRC," she went on to add.
Mamata announced that she will visit the Birbhum district on December 28 for an official meeting, and also lead a roadshow the next day.
Interacting with media persons at a press conference in Bolpur on Sunday, Amit Shah had accused the Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal of failing to deliver on several fronts. Shah said the state lags behind most states in the country on various parameters, except on corruption and extortion.
