Kolkata: After being nominated as a BJP candidate from Tarakeswar assembly seat in Hooghly district, Rajya Sabha MP Swapan Dasgupta said his party wanted to end TMC’s ‘Syndicate Raj’ in West Bengal.
He also asked people who hail from the state, but stay out of ‘Chip’ and help the BJP to make ‘Sonar Bangla’ (Swarnim).
‘We all know about the prevailing situation in the state. This atmosphere of violence, extortion …. We want to end this. The BJP will ensure that the people in Bengal live in peace. ‘
Senior saffron party leaders, including Amit Shah and JP Nadda, have often been killed at the Mamta Banerjee camp for allegedly patronizing syndicates and clubs that collect money from the common people.
Dasgupta also said that ‘work opportunities have dried up’ in the state and talented youth are moving to jobs and higher education.
‘Bengalis have been able to establish themselves all over the world. Sadly, they do not get enough scope to work here and get out. We want to get that flow, ‘he said.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote, ‘The honor of being nominated by the West Bengal BJP to contest from the Tarakeswar Center of Bengals Cultural Heritage. I look forward to a new vibrant Sonar Bangla campaign.’
