Don’t worry about rain, come out and vote: Mamata Banerjee
Mamata Banerjee on Thursday appealed to voters in Bhowanipore to come out of their homes and cast votes on September 30.
“Come what may — even if it rains or there is a storm — remember one thing, you need to come out of your homes and cast a vote for me if you want me to continue as your chief minister. Our party has majority and there is no dearth of leaders who can take over as CM, but if you want me to continue the work I do for you 365 days in a year, bless me with one vote, all of you,” Banerjee said at a rally in Puddapukur.
While the chief minister was speaking it was still raining, but party officials had made a hangar-like structure with a roof to ensure that the rain couldn’t play spoilsport and fixed the venue at a higher level to prevent waterlogging.
“It has been raining for the last four hours. In earlier days, this waterlogging would have taken around a week to recede. But now, in two days most places get dry. Hence, don’t worry about rain and on election day come out to vote. I have announced a holiday for this area, so don’t give any excuses,” she said.
