Mamata Banerjee said she is ready to play one-on-one and told people to take money from the BJP and cast vote for the TMC.
Responding to an all-out attack led by PM Modi in his Kolkata rally today, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said poribortan (change) will happen in Delhi, not in Bengal. The Prime Minister was peddling lies to mislead the people of Bengal, she further added.
The TMC supremo, countering the PM’s ‘Bua-Bhatija’ jibe, said India knows about a syndicate that is Modi and Amit Shah’s syndicate.
Mamata Banerjee, using the TMC campaign song ‘Khela Hobe’, said she is ready to play one-on-one and told people to take money from the BJP and cast vote for the TMC.
The Chief Minister, rejecting the PM’s allegation that women are not safe in her state, said he should look at UP, Bihar and other states ruled by the BJP and claimed that women are safe in Bengal.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today led a “padayatra” or foot march in Siliguri to protest against the steep hike in fuel prices, including LPG cylinders. Thousands of supporters, especially women, were seen holding red-coloured cardboard replicas of LPG cylinders at the ”yatra”, which was led by the TMC chief, and joined by her ministerial colleague Chandrima Bhattacharya, and party MPs Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan.
Chief Minister Banerjee, claiming that LPG cylinders would soon be beyond the reach of common man, had said on Saturday that massive demonstrations should be held to “make our voices heard”.
“We need to organise massive demonstrations to make our voices heard. Many of those taking part in the rally will carry empty LPG cylinders to mark the protest,” Ms Banerjee was quoted as saying by news agency PTI, after her arrival to Siliguri from Kolkata on Saturday.
