"Scared of losing, Modi and Shah are attacking everybody": Mamata

"Scared of losing, Modi and Shah are attacking everybody": Mamata

Dum Dum, May 11 (UNI) West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said, " Narendra Modi and Amit Shah are scared of losing, hence they are attacking everybody in sight. "

Addressing a public meeting at Dum Dum Central Jail ground here in North 24 Parganas district, Ms Banerjee said, it is time to oust the BJP from power and bring all like-minded parties together to form a progressive government at the Centre

“Reporters often ask me about violence in elections in Bangla. I want to tell them, why don’t you write about panchayat elections in Tripura where 98 per cent seats were uncontested? Or about MP, Chhattisgarh and other States, where elections are not even held in many seats?” she commented.

“I have never seen a prime minister who could stoop so low as to call me a ‘tolabaj’ (extortionist),” the chief minister alleged.

“Modi comes here and says that I have done nothing. Actually, he is jealous of me for the way we have transformed Bangla in eight years,” the TMC supremo remarked.

Ms Banerjee said, “You have not done anything for the poor. You did nothing for Gujarat. In UP, the BJP has created a gau Raksha committee and killed people, and killed people in staged encounters. For doing all these and more, you will lose badly across the country.”

“I have all the information about my State at my fingertips – on the other hand, the prime minister has no idea about anything, and comes here and says that we have not done anything,” she said.

The chief minister said, " Modi behaves as if Ram is his election agent, the way he takes his name for everything. "

“Modi has not given us anything. On the other hand, we have to pay Rs 50,000 crore every year as repayment for debt. What he does instead is take away all our (and other States’) collections from customs duty, excise duty and cess, and give back only 7 per cent of the amount,” Ms Banerjee alleged.

The chief minister said, " Jet Airways, BSNL, Dunlop, Jessop – the BJP Government is determined to finish off all the companies. The Centre has not even signed a Bill which would have enabled us to take Dunlop and Jessop over and make them profitable again. "

The TMC supremo said, " Names of 22 lakh Bengali Hindu and 22 lakh Bengali Muslims have been excluded in the Assam NRC. Even names of Biharis and people from various States have been excluded. "

“Modi comes here and says that I don’t allow Durga Puja and Saraswati Puja – these are big lies,” the chief minister alleged.

“I am a Hindu but I look upon people of all religions with equal respect – I believe in unity in diversity,” she said.

“We, Trinamool Congress, are the only party that has protested against the atrocious policies of the BJP ceaselessly over the last five years,” Ms Banerjee commented,

“This election is crucial, it will determine whether the country and its institutions as we know them will exist, even whether elections would ever be held again and the Constitution would remain sacred,” the TMC supremo said.

“I still remember the senseless tortures the CPI(M) had inflicted on the people of the State for working for my party over the years. Singur and Nandigram were only the latest feathers in the cap of their long story of torture,” Ms Banerjee added.
