NEW DELHI,(IANS): "I find it funny that the party that has outsourced their brains to Prashant Kishor is trying to label everyone else as 'outsiders'," said 35-year-old Raju Bista, BJP MP from Darjeeling, in an exclusive interview with IANS.
"I wonder if Prashant Kishor was born in Eden Gardens?", Bista said. He added that the TMC is intellectually so bankrupt that they had to pay someone to think for them, and they want people to believe they are the custodian of Bengali pride. "It's laughable", he said.
On the intensely contested elections in Bengal, Bista said for 34-years the CPIM soaked this holy land with blood of their opposition and for the past 10 years, TMC has continued with the politics of violence and murder.
"Today, the BJP is fighting to save the soul of Bengal, so that no other individual will have to die for their political beliefs. The people of Bengal have had enough of this violence, this is why they are joining us in our quest to restore democracy in Bengal," he added.
Bista said that after coming to power, Mamata became more brutal and dictatorial than CPIM, and today the TMC is indulging in widespread violence across Bengal.
Bista said the people from Bengal can see the absolute lack of development, they have to live under police raj and dictatorship of TMC goons. "People in Bengal believe in the leadership of Hon'ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji and are striving for change," he said.
