Agnikanya Mamata Banerjee would remain an example all over the country: Abhishek

Trinamool Youth Congress President and MP Abhishek Banerjee addressed a rally organised by the south Kolkata Trinamool youth Congress at Hazra on Sunday in preparation for the Trinamool Congress’ annual Ekushe July Saheed Divas in Dharmatallah in memory of 13 Youth Congress activists who were killed in police firing on 21 July, 1993 during a law violation programme in the city.

The Youth Congress leader lashed out at the opposition and the media for what he called hatching a conspiracy against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee by “belittling” her performances in last four and a half years.

Listing the Trinamool Congress Government’s achievements, Abhishek said “the immense” contribution made by the West Bengal Chief Minister “for which the people of Bengal fondly call her the Agnikanya”, would remain an example all over the country, particularly her initiative to resolve the crises in Janmgalmahal and in Darjeeling hills, besides the innumerable developmental projects undertaken by her government.

Abhishek said he would not hesitate to praise the Trinamool Congress Chairperson considering her “selfless sacrifice to the cause of the people and exemplary courage, now-adays a rare quality among the politicians”.

Coming down heavily against the media, as also the CPI-M, BJP and Congress, he said “a conspiracy” was hatched against Mamata Banerjee and the Trinamool Congress, but hastened to add that the “war against the people will not pay”. “I find that the media and the opposition have waged a war on the Chief Minister who stands for the people and whose life is dedicated to the cause of the people.No use waging such a war against the people,” he warned.

The TMYC leader took a dig at those political leaders “who have no other job but to criticise the Chief Minister and find fault with her government only in the TV screen”, and said “I would like to ask these politicians to be answerable to the people for the job they are doing for the masses”. Recalling the contribution of Mamata in ensuring introduction of photo identity cards to voters, he said “May I ask if the opposition friends are aware of this?”

Sunday’s rally was attended by All-India Trinamool Congress Secretary-General Partha Chatterjee, Kolkata Mayor Sobhan Chatterjee, Trinamool Chief Whip in Assembly Sobhandeb Chatterjee, Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim, Trinamool President Subrata Bakshi, among party’s south Kolkata district leaders.
