New Delhi: Referring to the recent surge of Trinamool Congress in the region, the BJP leader and member of parliament Kamakhya Prasad Tasa has stated that people of the north east India will not be supporting the Trinamool Congress.
He said this while interacting with a reporter from UNI news agency on Saturday.
Tasa believes that the Mamata Banerjee led party will not be able to do any developmental work for the region, because their power as a political organization is limited to the boundaries of West Bengal only.
He also added that a section of people might show their support for the party during the initial period, however it will not last for long and its popularity will fade quickly.
He further stated that the TMC is good at pumping money into every political activity, although unlike the BJP the party lacks any connect with the voters at the grass-root level.
He also alleged West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of provoking hatred against Prime Minister Narendra Modi by misleading the people and promoting false narratives. He added that the people of this region will not fall prey to such propaganda.
Specifically, about Assam, he stated that parties like Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) also tried to make inroads in the state, but they failed, and TMC is set to have a similar fate.
Tasa also expressed his confidence that the BJP led alliance will win all the seats when the by-election results in the state are announced.
