Trinamool’s strong response to BJP – Don’t give us lessons on regulatory and financial compliance

A Central minister who addressed the media today is playing dirty games. The All India Trinamool Congress has submitted all its accounts to the Election Commision. It has replied to communications from the Income-Tax Department. What gives the Minister the authority to say all this?

Instead, why doesn’t he check if his own house, his own party, is in order? Please don’t give us lessons on regulatory and financial compliance. Our party has fulfilled all criteria and that is why we have been recognised as a national party recently.

The Minister’s so-called press conference is part of a concerted attempt to browbeat political parties in the opposition, independent sections of the media and critics of the current regime in Delhi.

These wild allegations will only strengthen our resolve. The BJP cannot scare us. In time, the people will show this government what they think of it and its theatrics.

Nasbandi was punished 40 years ago, Notebandi will be punished soon.
