All religions peacefully coexist in Bangla: Mamata Banerjee at Krishnanagar

Trinamool Chairperson Mamata Banerjee addressed a rally in Krishnanagar today. She said that people of Bangla believe in peaceful co-existence.

Highlights of her speech:

  • The BJP’s culture is about weapons – taking out processions with weapons in hand. This is so unlike Bangla.
  • They don’t know our culture, our people – they know nothing but instigating riots
  • All religions peacefully coexist in Bangla. There is unity in diversity. And I participate in all festivities.
  • We speak gently, have sweetness and feeling in our words – unlike them. We love and respect all languages.
  • The Centre takes away a lot of money as cess and does not give anything to us. For many crucial schemes, they have decreased the funds. On top of that, we have to pay a lot of money for the debt repayment.
  • Despite this, we provide so many benefits for the people.
  • Our MPs have spent so much time for the people. We don’t need to spend black money.
  • And what about the BJP? Because of them, 12,000 farmers have committed suicides, so many business and livelihoods were destroyed because of demonetisation.
  • They have removed the names of 22 lakh Hindus in Assam NRC on the basis of false reasoning. Our MPs went to Assam to fight for the people.
  • Our Hinduism is the one preached by our saints and our forefathers, not the one preached by Modi and Amit Shah.
  • Be it Shri Ramakrishna or Swami Vivekananda – they all preached about communal harmony. We have grown up hearing such stories.
  • The BJP is giving away money from big boxes, and giving gifts to influence voters.
  • My family is Maa-Mati-Manush and my gotra is Maa-Mati-Manush as I feel that if my people are happy, I will also be happy.
  • The duo are coming here and telling people that I don’t supposedly allow you to hold Durga Pujas. But that is a stark lie. Don’t I allow you to hold Durga Puja?
  • It is my responsibility to ensure that Hindus and Muslims, Adivasis and even the smallest minorities get equal opportunities.
  • The Prime Minister lies so much. He should have respect for the post of Prime Minister.
  • The BJP and its party’s Prime Minister have no work – the latter is only interested in visiting other countries.
  • Every vote is important to defeat Narendra Modi. The time has come to fight the BJP and defeat it.
  • First he called himself a chaiwallah, now calls himself a Chowkidar. But he is a ‘chor’ Chowkidar?
  • We will help in the formation of a new government at the Centre in the coming days.
