AM Amit Shah. I am a small worker of the BJP and I have come to uproot the Trinamool Congress from West Bengal," thundered party chief Amit Shah as he tore into the home turf of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday.

Virtually kicking off the poll campaign for the 2015 municipal and the 2016 Assembly elections at the Uthhan Diwas of Rising) celebration Shah asserted he was here uproot Trinamool from Bengal while launching a scathing attack on the state government Saradha scam, Burdwan and illegal Bangladesh immigrants.

BJP president's innovative six- minute break in his speech as soon as " azaan " began earned him plaudits, with remarking, " I don't want Mamata to get an excuse that I not considerate for my Muslim brothers." Addressing a mammoth rally front of the iconic Victoria House in downtown Kolkata, said: " If they are defaulters the CBI ( Central Bureau Investigation) is framing charges against them, court will take the decision.

If Didi is so sure about role of her party leaders, must announce that they honest and have no connection with the Saradha chit scam. Can she declare are innocent? I challenge Mamatadi that you say for that the persons CBI arrested are innocent." Didi has reduced the platform of our rally. But the huge crowd shows that days are numbered for the Trinamool Congress government in Bengal," Shah hollered. T HE rally was held after a series of hurdles as the city agencies like the Kolkata Municipal Corporation ( KMC), state fire brigade and police raised objections, prompting party to move the Calcutta Court.

Friday, the court allowed to the rally outside the Victoria House -- a place where the Trinamool observes its July 21 Martyrs' Day rally every year.

Shah said that the Trinamool is sending her MPs to protest against the black money in Parliament but here she saving the Saradha accused looted over 17 lakh people.

He said: " Why is she not protesting now like Singur? People of Bengal thought that there will be development in Bengal if Trinamool Congress comes to power but after three- and- a- half years, it is the same. No fresh investment has come up so far." He also urged people to get ready for the 2015 KMC election for the state's largest civic body that is currently ruled by the Trinamool Congress. " Our political journey should begin with the civic body election scheduled next year. And let's start with the KMC," he added.

Shah asked the people of Bengal to uproot Trinamool in the next Assembly elections in 2016.

He said: " Mamata should answer who bought her paintings? She should answer why Shymal Sen commission was not allowed to work. ... She started vote bank politics by protecting the Burdwan blast accused. You ( Didi) are objecting to the National Investigation Agency ( NIA) probe in the Burdwan blast? Who made you CM of Bengal -- the people of Bengal or Bangladeshi infiltrators? She has to answer all these." The BJP chief said: "... do not make national borders vulnerable.

Even Bangladesh people do not support those who you support. I appeal to the people to add the state to national progress by choosing BJP, which is winning everywhere. BJP should be in power in Bengal too. Make Bengal TMC- free." Shah, Bengal BJP chief Rahul Sinha ( left) and central party observer in the state Siddharth Nath Singh wave to supporters.

I know Assam's problems. I assure you all that there will be no compromise on Assam's security. Land- swapping will be done for a permanent solution. I know the sentiment of Assamese people regarding the land- swapping deal. I assure you, we will move ahead keeping in mind the country's and Assam's welfare.

The BJP doesn't do politics on the basis of casteism, communalism or regionalism. We don't accept that road.

The BJP always did politics of nationalism. We believe in development, with all and for all.

The poor had never entered the banks ( earlier). We have opened bank doors for them. The PSU banks are working very hard now. Every week, one crore bank accounts are being opened. Earlier, one crore accounts were opened not even in one month, but in one year.

No party had the courage to fight elections on the development issue. In Maharashtra, Haryana and now in Jharkhand, all parties are talking about development.
