Trinamool cannot be intimidated with CBI: Abhishek Banerjee at Purulia

Trinamool Congress party colours were the only thing that eyes could find on the day Trinamool Youth Congress President Abhishek Banerjee took to stage at the Purulia town, near the Taxi stand whicle campaigning for the Municipal Polls.

Thousands of people listened to the mesmerizing speech of the ‘Young Turk’, an MP and one of the most enigmatic youth leaders of the country.

In his fiery speech, Abhishek Banerjee urged the people to vote in such a manner that there should not be any opposition and asked the people to bless Trinamool Congress by winning 23 out of the 23 seats. He reiterated that the West Bengal Government led by Ms Mamata Banerjee has done much more work for the State in comparison to what the BJP Government in the Centre has done in one year. He raised the question whether the BJP can give information of 5% of the work they claim to have done.

Abhishek Banerjee said that BJP should first earn their victory over Congress or CPM before trying to change Ms Mamata Banerjee. He said that Mamata Banerjee is not afraid of CBI, ED, Income Tax Dept and such other bodies which are being used to suppress her voice. He said that the name of Mamata Banerjee is synonymous to the word revolution. There is no power that can topple the Government led by Ms Mamata Banerjee. Trinamool was victorious in spite of the Saradah issue in the Panchayat polls and the General Election 2014. Trinamool was not affected. The same results will be evident in the forthcoming Municipal Elections as well as the 2016 Assembly polls, Abhishek Banerjee said.

Abhishek Banerjee pointed out the present PM, who used a car worth Rs 10 lakh, now uses a a car worth Rs six crore, wears suits worth Rs 15 lakh. In comparison, Ms Mamata Banerjee still stays in a modest house which has tiles for roof. He lashed upon the Left Front saying that the Left leaders should keep their mouth shut on the issue of crime against women as it was during the Left rule in Bengal when Tapasi Malik was murdered and incidents like Dhantala and Bantala happened.

The Trinamool Youth Congress President said that those who are spreading slanders through television talk shows should realize that more the criticisms are, more there will be blessings for Ms Mamata Banerjee. He said that those who are spreading canards are forgetting that this is not Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh or Jharkhand. This is the holy land of Nazrul and Rabindranath Tagore.

On this day, Abhishek Banerjee addressed another campaign meeting a t Jhalda. In the evening a road show was organized from Raghunathpur New Bus Stand, covering the Ward Nos 4, 5 and 8 and concluding at the Netaji Sangha ground. MP Derek O’Brien and Indranil Sen were accompanying him in Purulia.

WB CM Ms Mamata Banerjee has been working relentlessly for the safety of women across the State. It was her idea to have all women police stations in the state to combat women related crimes. In a police station where women will not only feel free and safe to report criminal cases against them, but where such cases will also be dealt with immense sensitivity and compassion.

In another innovative step, the West Bengal Government is launching a special police cell to deal with highway accidents. This cell will be known as ‘Highway Traffic Police’. Along with investigating accident cases on highways, they will also take prompt action so that accident victims get immediate medical attention and effective rescue missions.
