Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s war call from PM Modi’s home ground Varanasi

News Desk: Addressing a huge public in PM Modi’s Lok Sabha constituency Varanasi, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday slammed the saffron party saying its defeat is clear and evident.

Slamming the saffron party over the protest she faced in Varanasi on Wednesday when she was on the way to take part in Ganga Aarti, she said “Yesterday when I was going to Ghat from airport, I saw some BJP workers – who have nothing else except hooliganism in their brains – stopping my vehicle. They hit my car with sticks and told me to go back. Then I realised that they’re gone. Their loss is imminent”.

“I am not scared. I am not a coward. I am a fighter. I faced thrashings and bullets several times in my life. But I never bowed down. Yesterday when they were surrounding me, I got down from my car and faced them to see what they can do. They are cowards” she added.

On Wednesday, the TMC supremo faced protest from Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath’s Hindu Yuva Vahini. They waved black flags and raised slogans of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ when she was travelling to Dashashwamedh Ghat to attend the ‘Ganga Aarti’ on Wednesday evening.

They protested in front of her convoy at the Chetganj crossing, even as the police made efforts to stop them. Mamata Banerjee got down from her vehicle and stood on the road for some time.

After the convoy moved on, some BJP supporters showed her black flags and raised slogans of “Mamata Banerjee wapas jao” and “Jai Shri Ram” in Gadaulia area.
