West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday accused the Narendra Modi government of stealing the country's reserves and wondered how would it ensure the security of the nation when it could not protect files related to the Rafale deal.
Stating that there had been a 260 per cent rise in terror incidents in Kashmir during the present regime, Ms Banerjee said the BJP-led NDA government could not restore peace in the valley as it had crossed the "expiry date".
"After the elections, the new government at the Centre will bring peace and stability in Kashmir," she said.
Ms Banerjee was addressing a rally on the occasion of International Women's Day in Kolkata during which she kicked off her party's campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha election.
"You (Narendra Modi government) have stolen all the reserves and money of this country and is using it to fund your party. How will the government, which can't protect the Rafale files, protect the security of the country," she asked.
Ms Banerjee also took pride in her Trinamool Congress for having 35 per cent women legislators in the 16th Lok Sabha even as the Women's Reservation Bill was yet to be passed in Parliament.
"While the Womens Reservation Bill has not yet been passed in #Parliament, I am proud that our party @AITCofficial has 35% women MPs in the 16th Lok Sabha. We have also reserved 50% seats in local bodies for women candidates #IWD2019," she tweeted on the occasion of Women''s Day.
