I promise you that I’ll oust Modi from power: Mamata Banerjee
On the concluding day of the Trinamooler Nabajowar programme today, the party’s Chairperson Mamata Banerjee addressed party workers at a public meeting in Kakdwip in South 24 Parganas.
Highlights of her speech:
Two lakh thirty-one thousand nominations have been received. There has never been a more peaceful nomination stage earlier. Seventy people died in 2003 and 36 in 2008.
What have the Central forces done to protect people? Thirty-nine people died in 2013 despite their presence.
They sent Central forces to Manipur too. But what happened? Even a Central minister’s house was burnt down. One hundred fifty people have died. The Central forces have not been able to do anything.
I promise that I’ll oust Narendra Modi from power. Central forces won’t be able to do anything. Mothers and daughters, come together for a fight.
The Congress has ruled many states. They are the biggest collaborators of the CPI(M). They are collaborators of the BJP. And after all this, they want our collaboration in Parliament. But we will help and that too, against the BJP. But remember, in Bengal, you cannot help the CPI(M)and then ask for our help too.
Not just me, they spread rotten things about everyone who works for Trinamool. They ask a lot of questions of Abhishek. But today I will tell you a bit of history about Abhishek.
Many say it was Pishi who came and made Bhaipo an MP. But they don’t know history.
Abhishek has been involved in politics from the age of two. Goons of the CPI(M) had beaten me up badly in 1990. I had come back from hospital and spoken to my mother. Abhishek heard everything sitting in my mother’s lap. From the next day, he used to walk around holding aloft a flag, asking, “Tell me why you beat up Didi”.
