Bangla is not scared of Modi: Mamata Banerjee at Debra
Trinamool Chairperson Mamata Banerjee today addressed a public meeting at Debra, located in Paschim Medinipur district, and which is part of the Ghatal Lok Sabha constituency. She said that Narendra Modi has throttled the voices of the people and even the media, through threats.
She accused him of running a fascist government, and asked everyone to oust him from power. She underlined the fact that only Trinamool Congress speaks up against him and his party, and that they will stop the juggernaut of Modi.
Highlights of her speech:
People and even the media are scared to speak up against him. Only we in Bangla speak up against him and his party.
We have done a lot of work for the people. But this election is for electing a new government in Delhi, to change the government which instigates riots, kills people, and which will change the history and geography of the country, and even do away with elections if elected back to power.
The BJP has continuously threatened the media into submitting to its wishes. But we will bell the cat. We will stop the BJP.
In 1942, Mahatma Gandhi led the Quit India Movement, and today we are giving the slogan, ‘Modi, stop the fascism and leave’.
Modi, you never came here when the people really needed you, in times of disaster. You are coming now only because of elections.
The BJP’s leaders are saying so many things about winning seats, but they’ll win nothing.
In the name of ‘achhe din’, the BJP increased the prices of gas, petrol and diesel, imposed demonetisation, tortured Adivasis and scheduled castes, turned Bengalis out of Assam using the NRC, Biharis out of Gujarat and other places, and committed several other atrocities; hence we are asking you all now, to save the country, oust Modi’.
You have not received any of the benefits promised by Modi. On the other hand, Bangla has reduced unemployment by 40%.
We want leaders like Gandhiji, Netaji, Babasaheb Ambedkar, Rajendra Prasad, and people like Rabindranath and Kazi Nazrul.
The BJP will lose badly across the country. Narendra Modi is the biggest danger to the country today
