‘TMC Fail Card’ lists its ‘corrupt and inept governance’





The Bhartiya Janata Party on Monday released a “TMC Fail Card” on its government’s 10-year-rule and accused it of lying to the people of West Bengal about the state’s development.

This was in response to a report card which TMC had brought out listing its achievement.

Alleging that Mamata Banerjee government has peddled in lies and describing the TMC report Card as a bluff, senior BJP leaders Swapan Dasgupta, Shishir Bajoria, and Shamik Bhattacharya released The “TMC Fail Card – the true story of 10 years of TMC’s corrupt and inept governance in West Bengal.“

“The report card released by the TMC is a complete bluff to fool the people of the state. In the last 10 years, the TMC government has failed on all fronts – economic growth, industry, health, education, security of women and creation of jobs,” Bhattacharya, BJP state chief spokesperson, stated.

The “TMC Fail Card” lists alleged corruption in the state and “inept governance” since the government came to power in 2011.

The state BJP twitter handle stated: “10 years of corruption, 10 years of the syndicate, 10 years of tolabaji [extortion], 10 years of slapping the democracy. That’s what TMC’s report card is all about. A failed student writing his own report card, that’s what TMC’s report card is.”

“The state government has failed to solve the problem of unemployment. The TMC report card too is nothing but another form of corruption. The people of Bengal know what the real report card of the TMC is,” Bhattacharya claimed.

Challenging the TMC government to release a white paper giving details about the investments made in West Bengal, Bhattacharya said, “The TMC government held several global investment summits over the years, but no investment has come to the state for setting up industries. Those who have units in the state are being compelled to move base elsewhere owing to the syndicate raj,”

With an eye on 2021 Assembly polls, the ruling TMC released a report card on December 10 highlighting its government’s “achievements” over the last 10 years.
