Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Thursday accused the BJP of vote-banking politics, saying this is evidenced by the way it has delayed the rise in milk prices of a nationally known milk brand in poll-bound Gujarat. Banerjee, who inaugurated a Kali Puja community in the city’s Janbazar, said the saffron party is “jealous” of its government and is ignoring the good work it has done for the past 11 years because it is only interested in showing its government in poor light for narrow-minded political gain.

She claimed that in the 11 years that the Trinamool Congress has held in Bengal, employment has increased by 40 percent, while employment in the rest of the country has fallen.

Speaking of the rise in milk prices by a nationally known state cooperative, Banerjee said: “Have you ever heard that the milk price of the same brand has not increased in Gujarat while it has increased in Bengal and some other states?”

“Is this because of the approaching elections in Gujarat? Will you (BJP regime) always treat states like Bengal in such a differentiated way,” said the saffron party’s fierce critic.

The dates for the Assembly poll in Gujarat are likely to be announced after Diwali.

Speaking of development projects in Bengal, she said that upcoming projects such as Tajpur Port and South Bengal Freight Corridor will create thousands of jobs in the coming days.

“You (BJP) are jealous. You can never match the work of the TMC government. You can only conspire to derail our projects. All Metro Rail projects in the city were initiated by me (during her tenure as railway minister ) What was your role in carrying out state development projects?” Banerjee said.

Banerjee said religious festivals such as Kali Puja and Diwali in Bengal are celebrated by people from all religions, communities and sects.
