Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Thursday criticised the Trinamool Congress government in and derided it for failing to bring in any positive change

in the ten years that it has been in power.

The UP chief minister also claimed that is not a safe place for women under the TMC government.

He promised that after BJP assumes power, education and transport will be made free for girls and anti-romeo squads will be formed in Bengal to deal with those who loiter around girls schools.

Where is the paribartan (change) that Mamata Banerjee had promised ten years ago? he asked addressing three poll rallies in Hooghly and Howrah districts of

The top saffron party leader said that when Trinamool Congress came to power in the state a decade ago it had promised to serve 'maa-maati-manush' (mother, motherland and people), which became its slogan.

"What happened to that slogan? I have come to ask Mamata Banerjee about it. Why is Bengal not a safe place for women? This soil had produced so many social reformers. What happened to the youth of the state who have become frustrated?


Banerjee and her party, the TMC have often referred to the Hathras gangrape case to mock at Adityanath and the law and order situation in BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh.

Adityanath said that Banerjee has no compassion for the youth, farmers and development. "But she has compassion for the TMC goons".

Referring to the Citizenship Amendment Act, he said it had been passed by Parliament and TMC had fanned violence against it in West Bengal.

The violence that occurred in West Bengal due to the legislation of CAA in Parliament had been fanned by the TMC. In UP the government had recovered money from those who indulged in violence and damaged public property, he said.

Here in Bengal, TMC is all for appeasement for the sake of vote bank. Mamata Banerjee supports cow slaughter. In UP cow slaughter is not allowed. If anybody is found to be involved in it, the person goes to jail", Adityanath said.

Expressing confidence that the BJP will come to power in Bengal, the saffron party leader said after the election results are declared on May 2 The TMC goons will be sent to jail. There will be an end to hooliganism and rule of law will prevail".

Promising free education, transport and setting up of anti-Romeo squads for the benefit of women in the state, he said BJP will lay stress on women and education.

"TMC is not allowing Central schemes to be implemented in West Bengal. Violence, anarchy and corruption have ruined the state", he added.

Adityanath also iterated the need for a 'double engine' government the government of the same party (BJP) at the Centre and the state for faster development of the state.
