Addressing thousands of people gathered in spite of immense heat, Trinammol Youth Congress President Abhishek Banerjee urged people to be beside Trinamool Chairperson Mamata Banerjee as always. Mr Banerjee was addressing at a campaign rally for the forthcoming Municipal Election 2015.
The Trinamool Youth Congress President urged the gathered mass to elect the Trinamool Congress candidates in all the 24 wards in the Bankura municipality.
Mr Banerjee said that the opposition leaders are spreading slander campaigns against Ms Mamata Banerjee through some television channels. But these people are not aware that one cannot be equal to Ms Mamata Banerjee in that manner. People are aware of the struggles of Ms Mamata Banerjee during the last 32-33 years, said Abhishek. He reminded the gathered mass that Ms Mamata Banerjee was beside the downtrodden, those seeking justice and was the voice against all undemocratic practices.
Abhishek Banerjee reminded the people that in spite of becoming the Chief Minister of West Bengal, there have been no change in the mentality of Ms Mamata Banerjee. She still travels from district to district. People in the districts had hardly seen the past two Chief Ministers, but Ms Mamata Banerjee has visited the Hills and the Jangalmahals numerous times, brought peace and resulted in development for these areas.
Abhishek urged the opposition to compete in developmental works, leaving aside the campaigns of slander. He said that Trinamool Congress was ready to take such challenges.
MPs Derek O’Brien, Moonmoon Sen and singer-activist Indranil Sen were present on the occasion.
