Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee urged citizens of the state to ensure that their name is on the voter list if they are eligible to vote.
Banerjee attended an event on land distribution organized by the state government in Kolkata. At the event she said, said, “Poor people can’t be evicted. I heard that on the pretext of constructing a flyover, railways have evicted people without any compensation. I will not allow anyone to evict refugees in West Bengal.”
At the event, she said to people that if their land is being taken away from them forcibly, then they should protest and the state government will support them too.
“Ensure your name is there on the voter list, or else, you will be sent to detention camps in the name of NRC. It’s a shame, shame and shame,” Banerjee said.
Mamata Banerjee accused the Bharatiya Janata Party at the centre for not releasing funds for 100-day of work.
Slamming the Bharatiya Janata Party for not providing fertiliser to farmers she said, “Farmers are not getting fertiliser from the Centre. We have even sent a letter to them. We will have to think about manufacturing fertiliser on our own in the future if non-cooperation continues.”
At the event, Banerjee handed over 4,701 lands ‘pattas’ to marginalized families from all districts.
Stating that there will be a ‘big khela’ in West Bengal, Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Agnimitra Paul on Tuesday claimed that the Trinamool Congress-led state government would not survive after December this year.
The leader further claimed that over 30 MLAs of the ruling TMC are in touch with the BJP and that the Mamata Banerjee-led government’s “existence is at stake”. “There will be a ‘khela’ here in December. More than 30 TMC MLAs are in contact with our party. They know that their Govt will not continue for long after December. Their existence is at stake,” Paul told ANI.
