Dey also claimed that in fact, the main objective of this government is that the sons and daughters of the poor do not get the opportunity to study. “Because they will demand for jobs and rights once they are educated. So the BJP government wants to privatize the education so that children of the poor cannot stand tall”, he claimed.On this day, he further lashed out at the against the government and said that the government can’t hike the salaries of the Mid Day Meal workers working in school, but crores of rupees are being arranged by the BJP leaders to hang flag festoons on the roadside to promote themselves.
“So it is a propaganda government. It is not a government of the people it is a antipeople government”, he said.He also said that the BJP leadership should show their face to the people through work without selling their face.
