Kolkata: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday launched a scathing attack on the Mamata Banerjee government in West Bengal, saying it has "snatched people's money and savings through the Saradha chit fund scam".

"A government's job is to provide you with health, education and jobs; this government did not do that. But this government snatched all your money, all your savings through the Saradha chit fund scam," Gandhi said at an election rally in Howrah district.

He said the government had failed in bringing jobs to the state.

"Earlier, people used to come to Bengal in search of jobs but now they go to other states because everyone has realised that the Mamata government can not bring jobs in the state," Gandhi said.


He also took pot-shots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said: "Here, Mamata ji does fake promises, there (in Delhi) Modi ji does the same."

He told the gathering that if voted to power, the Congress' top focus would be to provide jobs to the youth of the state.
