We do not make false promises to win election: Mamata Banerjee

Alipurduar, Apr 26 (IBNS): With BJP President Amit Shah claiming that his party will target to win maximum number of seats in Bengal during the Lok Sabha polls in 2019, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday targeted the ruling party at the Centre and said her Trinamool Congress government never makes false promises to win election.

"We do not talk but we work," she added.

Mamata is currently in a tour to North Bengal where the elections are on card in the next month.

Sharpening her attacks on BJP, Mamata said: "They (BJP) do not work and make false promises and only give dialogues."

Complaing against the centre, CM said that the BJP did not take over seven tea gardens yet, which they have promised before the assembly election in 2016.

She even added and said that the central government is planning to shift the tea board of Kolkata to the state of Assam.

Adding facts to her words, WB CM claimed that the state is ahead in many aspects, like agriculture, service as well as industrial sectors.

She claimed that Bengal's growth in service sector which is 13% outnumbered India's 9.2 while in agricultural sector, India's growth is 1.1%, much lesser than the state's 6%.

CM even claimed that the state GDP is higher than the country's GDP.

Comparing with BJP ruled states like Gujarat, Mamata highlighted the presence of several sea ports as a reason for the surge in development there.

The TMC chief did not miss a chance to accuse its past Left Front government for taking loans and said that it is the biggest reason for her government's disability.

"We all know that once a loan is taken, the debt jumps up multiplying. Our majority of the money gets used to pay the interest" she said.

While speaking about the BJP's accusation of the poor development in WB by TMC government, Mamata said: "They (BJP) are jealous of our good work. They never provide any financial assistance to the non-BJP ruled states."

BJP President Amit Shah earlier said on Wednesday that his party will aim at clinching highest number of seats in the Lok Sabha polls in Bengal in 2019.

"The BJP is aiming at winning highest number of seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls," Shah said at Chief Minister's constituency Bhawanipur.

Attacking West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Shah said: "Politics of violence & appeasement by Mamata banerjee's TMC cannot stop the surge of BJP in West Bengal."

Mamata announced that the state government will organise an industrial meet in Siliguri on May 19, where several chambers of commerce would be invited.
