Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of Bengal today spoke about her party’s strategy to tackle the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. She was present at the Esplanade in Kolkata, where the TMC was celebrating its annual Martyrs’ Day rally. She was confident that TMC is going to get all of 42 seats, and noted that the party never spends money to bring people to rallies, as they come because they want to listen to the leaders. She also targetted BJP party in her speech, saying that they’re going to begin “BJP hatao, Desh Bachao” campaign from August 15, Independence day onwards. She seemed confident that Bengal is going to lead the way for the total overturning of power from BJP party. Banerjee is obviously promoting her party and already explaining why BJP’s rule has been less than satisfactory. There is a need for a new government that is more sensitive toward the needs of its citizens.
She also pointed out that the sudden rise in the occurrences of mob lynchings is deeply troubling through this the government is creating Talibanis among the innocent population. And even though she respects some people in both RSS and BJP party, others are definitely playing a dirty game with the people of India and politics.
She also announced the name of the people who have joined the party this year: Former Rajya Sabha MP Chandan Mitra, former CPM MP Moinul Hasan, Congress’s Sabina Yasmin and Mizoram advocate-general Biswajit Deb.
