AITMC Chairperson Ms. Mamata Banerjee campaigns for the forthcoming Howrah LS by-polls
AITMC Chairperson Ms. Mamata Banerjee walked from Pilkhana to Dumurjala on May 30th, campaigning for the forthcoming Howrah LS by-polls. She was accompanied by TMC candidate Prasun Banerjee, and eminent party leaders.
Around 30,000 people of Central Howrah participated in the 5 kms long march, led by Mamata Banerjee.
“The opposition is trying to create a rift between the Bengalis and the non-Bengalis. The people of Howrah will never allow this. This is not the culture of Howrah- this is not the culture of Bengal“ said Ms Banerjee who was seen waving at the crowd, cajoling children on their mothers` laps and touching the feet of the seniors.
Reiterating that the Centre is behaving like a step-mother with West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee said,“They have not given us money but they cannot stop us. We are doing developmental work and we will continue to do so“.
Earlier during the week Mamata Banerjee held campaigns at Bally, Panchla and Andul in Howrah.
