Agartala, Aug 29 : While accusing Trinamool Congress of “assaulting” democracy in West Bengal and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of shielding corrupt people, BJP National president
J P Nadda on Monday claimed Tripura under his party appeared to be one of the best-governed states in the country.
Addressing a press conference at the BJP state office here, Nadda said in West Bengal crime against women, rape and political violence have become rampant under a woman Chief minister.
“The law and order of West Bengal is the worst in the country and incidences of political violence after the last assembly election in Bengal is known to all. BJP wants to eradicate the culture violence in Bengal with the support of the people.”
Nadda said Kejriwal has been raising allegations against the BJP but not replying to the queries of the investigating agency.
“Instead of complying to the laws and resorting to legal procedure, we don’t know why Kejriwal is raising allegations to divert people’s attention.”
“As per the statement of former Chief Minister of Tripura Biplab Kumar Deb and present Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha, all the poll promises made in the BJP’s vision documents before 2018 assembly elections were fulfilled and political violence in Tripura have come down to zero under BJP rule,” he claimed.
He claimed Tripura’s growth in the last four and half years under the BJP government was “tremendous” in terms of infrastructure, investment in the industrial sector, boost in tourism and organic farming, improvement of health services, roads, and connectivity, and creation of employment opportunities. Tripura has emerged as the model of development – speed, scale, and skill envisaged by the Prime Minister.
The law and order has improved and criminal activities have reduced substantially during BJP’s rule. The 23-year-old deadlock of settling displaced Brus of Mizoram in Tripura was done peacefully and amicably by the BJP government. All the misguided youths who were part of the insurgency, have now settled with a normal livelihood, he underlined.
“Tripura has become the gateway for South East Asian countries due to connectivity improvement.
“Agartala-Akhaura railway connectivity is almost completed and air connectivity between Agartala and Chittagong is offing soon,” Nadda pointed out.
Tripura had dark days when murder, mayhem, kidnapping, and armed rebellion were the order of the day. Later, corruption and nepotism became a regular phenomenon of governance under Left Front rule for 25 years. But after the BJP-led government came to power in Tripura, there is a remarkable change in the governance and a new phase of development has begun, Nadda stated.
In terms of women empowerment, Tripura achieved a milestone by increasing the number of SHGs by seven times with the direct patronage of the government. The SHGs’ products got branding and accreditation in the national market, and training was imparted to the artisans, and a buy back policy implemented for the SHG produces, he claimed.
The per capita income has increased by 30 percent in Tripura and the volume of the state budget has increased manifold. The state has been exporting pineapple, jackfruit, canned lemon and many other horticultural produces to the international market which indicates the status of Tripura’s economy under BJP’s double-engine government, Nadda said.
“When I was Union Health Minister under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Tripura was the state where cases had to be constantly referred to the other states. Now all advanced and critical surgeries and treatment is available in the state, because I sanctioned super speciality infrastructure for Tripura,” he added.
