No place for goons in Bangla: Mamata Banerjee

No place for goons in Bangla: Mamata Banerjee

Bangla Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday reiterated that there is no place for goons in Bengal. She urged upon Trinamool workers to carry the flag of the party with pride and march on. SHe was addressing a workers’ meeting at Kanchrapara.

Trinamool Chairperson also accused the BJP of targeting the Bengalis and the minorities. She said the BJP was trying to create an atmosphere of communal tension by spreading the venom of religious fundamentalism.

“Outsiders are instigating the doctors. I had rightly said that they were involved in yesterday’s protest. I had seen some outsiders raising slogans (at SSKM hospital),” she said, while addressing a rally here.

Alleging that EVMs in the recently held Lok Sabha elections were “programmed”, Mamata Banerjee also said that ballot papers should be brought back for conducting polls. She said the main agenda of this year’s 21st July Shahid Dibas rally would be ‘No EVM, bring back ballots’.

“Just because they (BJP) won a few seats by programming the EVMs, it doesn’t mean that they can beat up Bengalis and minorities. We will not tolerate this,” the chief minister said.

“The police will take action against the hooligans. If someone is living in Bengal, he or she has to learn Bengali,” she added.

She also slammed the BJP for instigating post-poll violence in the State. She alleged that they were trying to create differences between Rajbongshis and Bengalis, Gorkhas and Bengalis, and were also instigating Biharis and people from UP who live in the State.
