Mamata agreed to implement PM Kisan scheme as she realised TMC is losing ground: Nadda

IndiaTimes Saturday, 9 January 2021 ()
BJP national president J P Nadda Saturday mocked West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee for agreeing to implement PM Kisan Yojna only after realising that her party is fast losing ground among the farmers in the state. Nadda, who launched the 'Krishak Suraksha Abhiyan' to woo farmers in the poll-bound state, said it is "too late" for the TMC government to agree to implement the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi.

'I am with TMC': Satabdi Roy after meeting Abhishek Banerjee

TMC MP from Birbhum Satabdi Roy said there was no question of her leaving the party.

‘TMC should join Congress to defeat BJP in West Bengal’: Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury

The Congress proposed that the TMC should merge with it instead to put up a united fight against the BJP. The BJP, which has emerged as a potent force in the state, said the TMC's suggestion amounted to admission that it was not in a position to take on the saffron party on its own in the assembly polls in West Bengal due in April-May. "If the Left Front and the Congress are genuinely anti-BJP, they should rally behind Mamata Banerjee in her fight against the communal and divisive politics of the saffron party," senior TMC MP Sougata Roy said. Reacting to the TMC's proposal, state Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury blamed the West Bengal's ruling party for the growth of the BJP in the state. "We are not interested in aligning with the TMC. Why is the TMC now interested in an alliance with us after poaching our MLAs over the last 10 years. If Mamata Banerjee is in keen on fighting the BJP, then she should join the Congress as it is the only pan-India platform to fight against communalism," he said.

PM Modi ensures Tamil Nadu takes a big leap in development: JP Nadda

BJP president JP Nadda attended party's Pongal festival in Chennai on January 14. During his address, Nadda said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been ensuring that Tamil Nadu takes a big leap as far as development is concerned. He further compared the functioning of finance commission towards Tamil Nadu under UPA and PM Modi. "PM Modi has tried to see to it that the whole country goes forward. At the same time, he has made sure that Tamil Nadu takes a big leap as far as development is concerned. The 13 finance commission during the UPA government gave Rs 94,000 crores to Tamil Nadu for the development. But the same commission under PM Modi gave Tamil Nadu Rs 5 lakh 42,000 crores. Mainstreaming and bringing people of Tamil Nadu in the front of the development have been the basic ethos on which PM Modi is working," said BJP president JP Nadda.
