WB will be run by Bengali, not by Gujarati: Mamata

 KVirtually launching TMC’s campaign for next year’s Assembly elections, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched a frontal attack on the BJP, saying the state would continue to be run by its own people and not “outsiders” or “people from Gujarat”.

Addressing the party’s annual Martyrs’ day rally, Banerjee alleged that the Centre had deprived Bengal of resources and asserted that people would give a befitting reply to BJP for the injustice done to the state.

 “We will take revenge for this humiliation by winning the Assembly election next year. Outsiders will not be allowed to run Bengal, we know how to rise to the cause. Do not think TMC is weak. Bengal will be run by a Bengali,” Banerjee said.

Amidst the political crisis in Rajasthan and the developments earlier this year in Madhya Pradesh, the TMC supremo accused the BJP-led NDA government of “hatching a conspiracy” to try and topple duly elected governments of Opposition-ruled states by using “central agencies and money power”.

“A conspiracy is being hatched by the Union government to destabilise the elected government of Bengal by using central agencies and money power. The BJP is the most destructive party the country has ever seen. When the country is busy fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, the BJP is busy destabilising the elected governments in Rajasthan and West Bengal after Madhya Pradesh,” she said.

In an indirect dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Banerjee said, “Why should Gujarat rule all states? What’s the need for a federal structure? Create ‘one nation-one party system’ then.”

The Bengal CM also said “one party” was trying to incite riots among Hindus and Muslims. “Everyone from a refugee to someone belonging to royal family are equal for me. But, an attempt is being made to stir up communal disharmony. A party is trying to incite Hindu-Muslim riots. Remember that people from faiths are equal. This country, Bengal is for all,” Banerjee said.

Battling both Covid-19 and the aftermath of Cyclone Amphan, which has left a trail of devastation in parts of Bengal, Banerjee said all affected by the storm would receive government aid. “Don’t worry, everyone will get relief money. BJP, Congress, CPM are spreading canards. Ration is being given to 10 crore people and they will receive for the rest of their lives,” the TMC supremo said.

The rally, held in memory of the 13 youth Congress workers killed in police firing in Kolkata on July 21, 1993, is usually held at Esplanade in the heart of Kolkata. However, this year Banerjee addressed people on social media from her office due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Giant screens and monitors have been installed in public places and TMC offices across the state.
