Highlights of Abhishek Banerjee's speech:

  • The slogan for 13 September is – Chupchap joraphooley chhap.
  • Prior to 2011, could the Opposition in Bengalhold rallies freely? Yesterday BJP held a rally here. Don't you want such anatmosphere?
  • This government came to power in 2011 withthe support of the people. You voted for Mamata Banerjee because you saw herstruggle. We are focussed on the future, not the past.
  • Mamata Banerjee did not politicise Sharadaissue. Instead, she took steps to return people's money.
  • BJP plays communal politics. People shouldshow them the way out.
  • BJP does not understand the Bengalisentiment. Ram naam newar aage 14 bochorbonobas koruk BJP.
  • Media houses that are maligning WB governmentshould produce their balance sheets. How much money have they taken fromSaradha ads?
  • If there is an unbiased investigation ofSaradha scam, Mamata Banerjee will support it.
  • What did Modi do in 100 days? They did notpunish criminals; they did not grant Bengal the deserved money.
  • BJP failed to check price rise. Who isbenefiting from the Achhe Din? BJP or common people of India?
  • A BJP functionary was head of Saradha inTezpur, Assam. Why should he not go to jail? Why is Didi alone being targeted?
  • It is difficult for a section of the mediato accept Mamata Banerjee, with a humble background, as the CM. So they aretargeting her.
  • Vote for Trinamool to continue the surge ofdevelopment in Bengal.
