TMC, BJP: Surya Kanta Mishra

Kolkata, Feb 28 (PTI) Criticising the “communal
agenda” of the TMC and the BJP, West Bengal CPI(M) secretary
Surya Kanta Mishra Sunday stressed the need for an alternative
and said the Left-Congress grand alliance will fight to
provide employment and usher in industrial development in the
state.

Addressing a mega rally at the Brigade Parade Ground
here, Mishra accused the ruling TMC and the opposition BJP of
dividing people on “communal lines” to serve their political
interests, and said, West Bengal needs a government that
will not be a “copycat” of those run by the TMC and the BJP.

“Both the TMC and the BJP are two sides of the same
coin. Their agenda is to divide people on communal lines and
rule the masses. We have seen how TMC leaders are joining the
BJP lock, stock and barrel. Except for the chief minister and
some of her leaders, the rest have switched over to the BJP.
Both the TMC and the BJP now stand unmasked,” he said.

The state needs a government that can take up
industrialisation and generate employment, the CPI(M) leader
said.

“We need a government which can fill up all the
vacancies in state government jobs and semi-government sectors
within a year. Neither the TMC nor the BJP can do it. Only the
Left and secular forces are capable of it,” he said.

Claiming that the TMC has “stifled” the democratic
space in the state during its 10-year rule, Mishra said, “The
upcoming assembly election is about restoring democracy, and
unity among the people”.

“There will be an effort to divert attention from
today”s meeting by engineering other incidents after the rally
is over. But please don”t get swayed away. When there was an
attack on the livelihood of the common man, then a war of
words was going on between the TMC and the BJP,” the CPI(M)
leader said.

“Minorities, backwards, scheduled castes and tribes
are being divided on caste and communal lines practised by
both the forces,” he said.

Reaching out to the people of the hills in north
Bengal and Jangalmahal region in the south, Mishra said, there
is a need to protect the identity of indigenous people
residing in these places.

The forested areas of West Midnapore, Jhargram,
Bankura and Purulia districts in the southern part of the
state forms Jangalmahal.

On TMC poll slogan- “Bangla Nijer Meyekei Chaye”
portraying Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as its mascot, RSP
general secretary Manoj Bhattacharya said, “Bengal wants to
get rid of dictatorship, and the grand alliance will fight for
it.”
Expressing happiness at the turnout in the rally,
West Bengal Left Front chairman Biman Bose said, the grand
alliance is ready to take on the BJP-TMC in the state. PTI SUS
