Mamata Banerjee accuses BJP of making false promises to people of Bengal ahead of polls
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has accused the BJP of making false promises to win the votes of people in the assembly polls.
While addressing a meeting in Bankura, Mamata Banerjee said, “At the time of the election, the BJP leaders come and take away your vote by making false promises that they will give you rice and dal.”
Referring to the BJP promise of reservation for women in government jobs, the CM said that her government has already taken many steps for women empowerment.
Mamata Banerjee said, “We have given 50 percent reservation in the village, municipality. Panchayats have 50 per cent reservation. Mothers and sisters are in panchayats and in municipalities.”
The TMC supremo requested the people of Bengal not to fall in the trap of BJP leaders’ words and their false promises.
Election to 294-member state assembly will be held in eight phases from March 27 to April 29. The results will be declared on May 2.
