People will give their verdict against Opposition’s canards: Mamata Banerjee
Trinamool Congress Chairperson Ms Mamata Banerjee led a huge padayatra today from Sukanta Setu in Jadavpur to Gopalnagar in Hazra, via Golpark, Gariahat and Ballygaunge Phari.
She has already addressed four mass meetings in different parts of the city to campaign for the Trinamool candidates for the KMC Election 2015.
Before the padayatra, Mamata Banerjee addressed the audience at Sukanta Setu. She said that despite several constraints, the Trinamool Government has performed well in the last four years and Kolkata is the No. 1 city in India despite being a non-planned one.
She reminded that in Delhi the citizens have to buy water whereas in Kolkata, water is provided free of cost. She also said that load shedding, which was a big problem earlier is now a thing of the past. The State is also increasing its power generation capacity, she said.
The Trinamool Chairperson said that a lot of work can be done if there is cooperation between KMC and the State Government; she thanked the Kolkata Mayor for all the work done in the city. She said that people do not believe in the canards spread against Trinamool Congress in some media channels. “We reside in their hearts,” the Chairperson said.
“Defeat the slander campaign and propaganda in the upcoming municipal polls,” she urged people. She said that people will teach those a lesson who had gave the slogan Bhaag Mamata Bhaag. “Some parties exist only on TV studios. It is not possible to capture Bengal by sitting in Delhi,” she added.
