West Bengal's Trinamool Congress has become a 'private limited company' and the situation in the state under its government is worse than a 'jungle raaj' claimed BJP.

The Bharatiya Janata Party hit out at Mamata Banerjee-led government over the issues of unemployment and lack of development.

BJP Bengal's head, Suvendhu Adhikari, also slammed the TMC for announcing protests against the Centre's policies on 30 March, the day Ram Navami will be celebrated, saying those who believe in the 'sanatan culture' will celebrate Lord Ram's birth anniversary.

Instead of declaring a holiday on the day, she has announced protests after making 'fabricated and false' claims, he alleged.

The TMC has announced two-day protests in the state on 29 and 30 March.

Adhikari, who had defeated Banerjee in the 2021 assembly polls, accused TMC leaders and state officials of being involved in a scam of pocketing the Centre's money meant for the MNREGA scheme against one crore job cards.

He said these cards were found to be fake following an exercise to link all 3.6 crore job cards with Aadhaar. 'It's a big scam,' he said, adding that he has moved court to seek a CBI probe.

Accusing the TMC of 'misrule', he said the state's loan outstanding was Rs 2 lakh crore when it came to power in 2011 and it has now risen to Rs 6 lakh crore, while the number of registered educated unemployed has doubled from nearly 1 crore.

The number of migrant labourers has risen by nine times to over 45 lakh, he said

Besides the Left-ruled Kerala, Bengal is the only state which has not submitted an audit of its GST share, he added.

'The TMC is not a political party but is private limited company,' he said, accusing it of being involved in massive corruption and family rule.

He and BJP MP Locket Chatterjee also slammed the Bengal government for changing the central government schemes' names in the state.
