West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee termed the Bhartiya Janata Party as a “jumla (rhetoric) party” and said that she would defeat the saffron camp across India in the coming days.
Addressing a press conference, Banerjee, criticised the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-govt for not allowing her to attend a global peace meet in Rome and claimed that such attempts by the saffron party will not succeed in stopping her.
Mamata Banerjee said, “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.”
The Trinamool chief, who contested for the Bhabanipur by-poll September 30 also accused the Modi-Shah govt of outsiders to create 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,” the West Bengal chief minister said.
She further said that her party would take on the BJP at the national level and defeat them in the coming days.
Striking out at the Congress party months after the brotherhood between the two parties at the national level, Mamata Banerjee alleged that “the Congress, the CPI (M) too have an understanding with the BJP.”
The Trinamool supremo also claimed that the Congress, BJP and the CPI (M) had joined hands to defeat her in the Sept 30 Bhabanipur by-polls.
