Ended 34-year CPM rule, can remove Modi: Mamata

NEW DELHI, Feb 25 (AGENCIES): | Publish Date: 2/26/2019 12:00:00 AM IST

 Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today turned up the volume for a sharp takedown of the Narendra Modi government, saying it has “ruined the country, the economy, foreign policy and the institutions, generated hate between people, fake social network,  fake news... Everything is a lie. “ Banerjee said she was being targetted by the Centre as she was the only one pointing it out.

“Two brothers Jagai and Madhai are running the country. People who are rioters,” Banerjee said. Jagai and Madhai were brothers, anti-socials who became reformed characters after coming in touch with 16th Century mystic Sri Chaitanya.

Banerjee, who earlier coined the “2019 BJP Finish” slogan, today reiterated that her party would win all 42 Lok Sabha seats in Bengal. It was also a message to her partymen. “When I say 42 on 42, I mean it. I want 42 -- in action. If you can’t do it, what’s the point of TMC?” she said.

“If we could get end 34-year rule of CPM, we can get rid of the five-year-old Modi government,” she added.

The Bengal Chief Minister also alleged that the Centre had prior knowledge of the Pulwama terror attack and questioned where Prime Minister Narendra Modi was at the time of the attack. Forty security men died on February 14 as a suicide bomber of Jaish-e Mohammad drove an RDX-filled vehicle into a 78-vehicle convoy of the CRPF.

The Congress has alleged that PM Modi was at the Corbett National Park for the shooting of a film and did not hurry back even when he got information about the terror attack. The government has denied the allegations.

There, however, has been no government response on the allegations of intelligence failure. Banerjee earlier said the Prime Minister and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval should accept responsibility for the intelligence failure.

Banerjee questioned why the 2,500 CRPF men were not airlifted and instead, allowed to travel in a convoy without “proper sanitisation and naka-checking” of the route.

Mamata alleged that though the Modi government had intelligence inputs about the Pulwama attack, it did not take any step as it was more keen on “playing politics over the dead bodies of jawans”.

Banerjee, while addressing the Trinamool Congress’s extended core committee meeting in Kolkata, vowed to oust the “dictatorial Narendra Modi government” from power in the upcoming general election.

She claimed that her party Trinamool Congress(TMC) will win all the 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal in the polls.

“The central government was aware that such an attack can take place, there were intelligence inputs. Then why didn’t the government take action to protect our jawans. The government allowed them to die so that they can do politics over the dead body of jawans in the elections,” Banerjee said.

They want to create a “war hysteria” ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, the TMC president alleged.

The central government is functioning in a peculiar way and union ministers are not aware of important decisions, Banerjee claimed.

“This government is being run by two brothers (Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah), who have blood of innocents on their hands,” she said.

“Our party workers and cadre should be cautious as efforts are on to tamper EVMs (electronic voting machines) during the Lok Sabha polls. You all have to thwart those efforts,” she said. On February 14, 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in Jammu and Kashmir after a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist rammed an explosive-laden vehicle into their bus in Pulwama district.
