Abhishek Banerjee said the TMC will no longer be limited to Bengal and is politically ready to take on the BJP at the pan-India level.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of the Trinamool Party on Sunday called the BJP as a “jumla (false promise) party” and asserted that she would defeat them across the country in the days to come.
When speaking at a public meeting, Ms Banerjee criticized the BJP ruling party for not allowing her to attend a global peace meet in Rome and declared that such attempts by the BJP will not succeed in stopping her.
n August this year, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee was invited to attend a program by Macro Impagliazzo, the president of Community of Sant’Egidio, a Catholic association based in Rome. She was the only Indian invited to attend it. However, the Center denied permission to Mamata for the trip to Rome next month
Debangshu Bhattacharya, a Trinamool Congress spokesperson tweeted, “Central government denied permission for Didi’s Rome trip! Previously they’ve canceled the permission of China trip too. We accepted that decision keeping international relations and India’s interests in mind. Now, why Italy Modi ji? What is your problem with Bengal? Chi!”
Ms. Banerjee said at the meeting, “The BJP is the biggest jumla party in the country. It has only lies and hatred to offer. If you speak against them, they will unleash central agencies against you. They (BJP) are the party of a dancing dragon, who will remove your name from the list of citizenship in the name of CAA, NRC and NPR,” she said.
The Trinamool supremo also accused the BJP of outsiders creating disturbances during the by-poll.
“The BJP thinks it can do whatever it wants just because it is in power. It doesn’t follow human rights and democratic rights in the states where it is in power — Uttar Pradesh, Assam, or Tripura. So many people died due to Covid in Uttar Pradesh. They did not allow cremation of those bodies and threw them in the Ganga. Human rights are violated in these states regularly, but Human Rights Commission won’t visit these states,” she said.
“In the days to come, we would take on the BJP at the national level and defeat them,” Banerjee said.
