Hitting out at erstwhile Congress-led UPA regime over the 2G and coal scams, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said while the Congress was harping on Saradha scam in the current Assembly poll campaign, it kept mum on the ‘scams’ that took place during UPA tenure.
She was addressing a massive rally at Serampore. Later in the day she also held rallies at Maheshtala and Behala.
“They are talking about corruption and Saradha scam. But what about the extent of corruption during their time (UPA’s tenure)! Of Coal gate scam and 2G scam! They should not talk much,” she added.
“For the entire five years, you won’t find them when you need them (Congress). They will come only during elections They are (migratory) birds who come only during elections,” the Trinamool Chairperson said.
She also highlighted the development work done by the Trinamool government in the last four and a half years.
Slamming the opposition, Didi said “Law & Order is basically a State subject; the Centre is interfering in the federal structure. The BJP govt is only indulging in terror and slander. The CPI(M) and the Congress have ganged up; they have become one entity. They have betrayed all, they are cowards, they cannot utter the truth. They cannot fight separately, so CPI(M)-Congress-BJP-ABP have teamed up together. They fight in Kerala but are friends in Bengal.”
