Uluberia: Lashing out at West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee for allegedly running a “mafia raj” in the state, BJP president Monday claimed that the state has topped the chart in cow smuggling and become a safe haven for infiltrators.

Urging the people to ensure that the BJP wins more than 23 out of 42 seats in the state, Shah said it would ensure that the syndicate raj ends within 90 days in Bengal.

In West Bengal, “syndicate” means the business run by persons allegedly enjoying political patronage, who force promoters and contractors to buy construction materials, often of inferior quality at high prices.

“Mamata Banerjee led TMC is running a mafia raj in the state. The state has achieved the distinction of topping the chart in cow smuggling and turning the state into a safe haven for infiltrators,” Mr Shah claimed.

Addressing a rally here, he accused Ms Banerjee of making West Bengal a bankrupt state where only her relatives and TMC ministers have flourished.

Mr Shah alleged that Banerjee, who is vehemently opposed to the contentious NRC, was misleading people.
