BJP will be expelled from Assam: TMC’s Abhishek Banerjee


Guwahati Trinamool Congress national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee on Wednesday stressed that he would do his utmost to oust the “corrupt” BJP government in Assam.

Addressing party workers for the first time in Assam, Banerjee set a target of winning 10 of the state’s 14 Lok Sabha seats in 2024, which would “completely shake” Delhi.
He also stressed that the TMC would form governments in both Tripura and Meghalaya, where Assembly elections are to be held next year. “We (TMC) will do our best to remove the corrupt BJP even if I am killed. We will not look back once we start fighting; wherever the TMC has entered, He has fought to the last. We will fight in the next LS elections to oust the BJP in two years. I will not give up until I win in Assam and I am very steadfast on it. I will reach everywhere, “said Banerjee, who visited the Kamakhya temple on the first day.
Reiterating that Assam should be controlled not by leaders sitting in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh but by its own people, he told party workers that “you have to snatch your rights from Delhi” and The BJP, in particular, criticized Union Home Minister Amit Shah. During his two-day visit to Assam, he maintained silence on the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and the National Register of Citizens, announcing plans to implement it in West Bengal.
We can do the same in Assam. Didi will visit Assam soon and we will prepare for the battle, ”he said, adding that he would form district and block committees in Assam in the next few months and that by the end of this year, the TMC would have all the booths. But there will be committees.

He challenged the BJP on the development work done in the last six years of its rule in Assam as compared to the 10 years of TMC in West Bengal.
Mocking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s commonly used term “double engine government”, he said it meant a one-party government at the state and center. Party using agencies like CBI and ED to raise prices and intimidate opposition leaders.
“The BJP is an idiot. It thinks it will intimidate us (TMC) as they did with the current Chief Minister of Assam using CBI and ED. The Congress may be intimidated, but TMC is not like that, ”he said.

He was apparently referring to the interrogation of Chief Minister Humanta Biswa Sarma, a former cabinet minister in Tarun Gogoi, over his alleged role in the Sharda Chit Fund scam.

Criticizing Sarma for his controversial remarks that the opposition was acting on his instructions, Banejee said, “You try it with the TMC. Your bosses in Delhi tried and failed. You will try to scare us, we will respond.
He accused the Congress of failing to stop the rise of the BJP and said that the saffron party could not be confronted only on social media platforms. People in Congress are not allowed to fight BJP. Big speeches alone cannot be used to fight the BJP. The difference between the TMC and the Congress is that it (the Congress) has been losing to the BJP for the last eight years and we are defeating the BJP at the same time. Every one of us has come from Congress, even Mamata Didi.
Referring to the alleged attack on him in Tripura, Banerjee said that every TMC leader was ready to bow down in temples, mosques and churches but “not ahead of anyone”.
