“Nobody from Gujarat will rule West Bengal”: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee

News Desk: Addressing a rally in Hooghly’s Debanandapur on Monday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that West Bengal will not be ruled by anyone from Gujarat. She also said that she’ll win West Bengal with one and Delhi with two legs.

“West Bengal will be ruled by its own people. Nobody from Gujarat will rule West Bengal. I will win Bengal with one leg and Delhi with two legs” she said.

She added “I suffered injuries. BJP supporters in Nandigram attacked me on March 10 to prevent me from campaigning for the West Bengal assembly polls”

Criticising the central government over Sunday’s Maoist attack in Chhattisgarh in which 22 security personnel were killed, the West Bengal chief minister accused the BJP of not governing the country properly and concentrating on West Bengal elections.

Lambasting the BJP for bringing leaders from all over the country, who “are camping in the state to win the elections”, Ms Banerjee said at a public meeting that the BJP is fielding its sitting MPs for the assembly polls since it has a dearth of suitable candidates.

“I don’t care about Prime Minister’s ‘Didi…o… didi’. He does this every day” she said.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also questioned the logic behind holding West Bengal assembly elections in eight phases. “It could have been done in 3 or 4 phases. Was it not prudent to hold the elections in fewer phases and wrap it up early in view of the COVID-19 situation? The coronavirus situation is not grim in the state till now” she said.
