Trinamool can even fight Delhi: Mamata Banerjee
Mamata Banerjee joined Abhishek Banerjee in the ‘Trinamooler Naba Jowar’ programme today.
Highlights of her speech at the programme:
This meeting is meant for those who love the party, help it grow and create its character—to take their opinions.
If there is democracy within a party, there can always be different opinions. With due respect to all opinions, let me make it clear that those who get selected to fight using the party’s symbol must be supported by the others.
We had said that we want change and not revenge. That is why, even after so much torture, I had asked my party’s workers to sing Rabindrasangeet and Nazrulgeeti.
I still believe my Kurmi brothers have not done this (attacking Abhishek Banerjee’s convoy). It is the BJP which has done this, by instigating the Kurmis.
Now they are saying that NRC has to be done. They’ve sent me a letter saying I am the only chief minister who has not set up a task force.
Look at what is happening in Manipur. So many people have died. Yet none from the BJP has gone there. They said they would go later. Later when? When everything is finished?
Banks are not taking Rs 2,000 notes, nor are shopkeepers out of fear. Shouldn’t these situations have been foreseen?
If you need to stand for elections in the future, for the panchayat or Lok Sabha, you need to know who all will help you to win.
If there is understanding within Trinamool, the party can even fight Delhi.
