Ready to lay down my life for the country: Mamata Banerjee
Bangla Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today addressed the ‘Tanashahi Hatao, Desh Bachao’ Satyagraha at Jantar Mantar, organised by the Aam Aadmi Party.
In her speech she called Narendra Modi and Amit Shah “two Gabbars” and said she was not afraid of their intimidation tactics. She also said that she was ready to lay down her life to save the country.
Earlier in the day, Mamata Banerjee had visited the Parliament. There she prayed in front of the statue of Mahatma Gandhi to save the Indian Constitution and Indian Democracy.
Highlights of the Chief Minister’s speech:
We will organise a bigger meeting at Ramlila Maidan after Modi is defeated.
Several leaders have already spoken. I will not repeat what they said.
Today was the last day of Parliament. In a few days elections will be declared and model code of conduct will come into effect. Their expiry date is over. Then he will not be able to do what he pleases.
They can scare us, beat us up, burn our houses, cause riots, sell the country only for 20 days. Jo darte hain, woh marte hain. Jo ladte hain, woh jeet te hain. Hum ladna jante hain.
What will you do? Send me to jail? Murder me? Send agencies? How many jails do you have?
I want to quote Subramanian Swamy. He tweeted that two media channels are in BJP’s pockets. I am not saying this. A BJP MP is saying this.
From RBI to CBI, all the institutions have been destroyed. They are arm-twisting the media into silence. Even your money is not safe in banks.
Everyone is under surveillance. Opposition leaders, even officials and their own party leaders are under surveillance.
A police officer was murdered in Uttar Pradesh. What happened to the investing officer in the Ishrat case?
They are threatening to take away the medals of our police officers. Departmental inquiry… How many medals have you given? All officers will return their medals if even one of the officiers is touched.
They had the audacity to send the CBI to Kolkata police commissioner’s home. I have not seen a government which has stooped so low. Modi is like an eclipse for the nation.
What does he think? He is the only saint and rest of us are thieves?
They prevented Akhilesh from going to a meeting. They sent the agencies after Akhilesh and Mayawati announced an alliance.
Whichever party is strong, should contest against the BJP in their respective States. In Bengal, we are strong, in Andhra, Chandrababu Naidu is strong. In Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party is strong. In Uttar Pradesh, SP-BSP and RLD are strong.
I support Farooq Abdullah when he says that sometimes we need to make some sacrifices for a greater cause.
Let Congress fight the BJP in Rajasthan, MP or Chhattisgarh. We are habituated in fighting against the BJP, Congress and CPI(M). They fight unitedly against us. Even if we go for an understanding, they won’t transfer votes. It doesn’t matter. We will win 42/42 seats.
BJP has a lot of money power. How much money do they spend on a single meeting of Narendra Modi? They lure people with freebies like bikes and mobile phones.
They have built a party headquarter which resembles a shopping mall. And they will lecture us on democracy? We have tolerated enough.
From the media to the youth, industrialists to the farmers – everyone is being terrorised.
Narendra Modi and Amit Shah are two Gabbars. They have blood on their hands. They are ruling the country. What a travesty.
Coffin waits for me, I don’t wait for coffin. CBI can come to my house. Let me know, I will have a meal waiting for you.
For the interest of the nation, I am ready to sacrifice my life. We are not afraid. We will fight. Let us make a united India
Democracy has become NaMocracy now. He will not give a penny to States but is sending letters claiming credit for schemes.
They are altering history, changing names. This is worse than emergency.
Even Gujarat will reject Modi in the future. Mahatma Gandhi is also from Gujarat. He was a true leader. Modi is neither leader nor ladder. Even Ravana had 56 inch chest.
Modi hatao, Desh Bachao. BJP hatao, Desh bachao.
Ekta bachao, BJP hatao. Naujawan bachao, BJP hatao. Kisan bachao, Modi hatao.
