BJP ‘shouting untruths’ about Bangla: Mamata Banerjee
Bangla Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday criticised the BJP for citing untruths about the State. She said none needs to lecture Bengal on democracy.
“Some people are shouting untruths. Are you trying to impart lessons in democracy to us? Bengal practices a democracy that is not followed anywhere else,” the CM said in a speech at Ilambazar in Birbhum district.
She alleged that the Centre is trying to gag people by snooping on their conversation over phones and computers. “You may tell your husband to buy fish from the market and even that conversation is not out of their scanner,” she said.
In her address on Thursday, Mamata Banerjee said, “People live in peace here, but some are trying to malign us. How can they indulge in politicking if people live in peace?” Bangla is the most peaceful place on the earth, she said.
