West Bengal: State BJP chief Sukanta Mazumdar slams CM Mamata Banerjee and Congress leader Digvijaya Singh

News Desk: Sukanta Majumdar, the chairman of BJP in West Bengal, stated on Sunday that TMC chief Mamata Banerjee is like “Mungerilal” because she wants to grow the party’s base outside of West Bengal.

He claimed that after the exit of five key members of the TMC months after their induction “Mamata is trying to expand her party outside West Bengal. She’s using ‘artificial’ ways to do so; hiring people to join but all in vain. There’s a saying ‘Mungerilal ke Haseen Sapne’, let her see such dreams”.

He also slammed the Congress over Rajya Sabha MP Digvijaya Singh’s remarks on Veer Savarkar.

He said “Digvijay Singh does not even know Savarkar. He does not even recognise him. I think Digvijay Singh hasn’t read about what is Hindutva. We have the court verdict. The ways of thinking, customs and traditions that we have been following for thousands of years and way of life which the court has defined is called Hindutva. Perhaps he did not understand it fully. If he reads the court judgment, he will know it”

“Congress is an electoral Hindu. Congress is on the verge of extinction by decreasing. By 2024, there will be a Congress-free India” he added.

Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Saturday claimed that the BJP will change the Constitution and end the reservation system if it is voted to power again in 2024. Speaking during Jan Jagran Abhiyan event, Mr Singh stated that Congress has a fight with the ideology of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

The Congress leader reiterated that Hindutva had nothing to do with Hinduism.

“Veer Savarkar, in his book, had said that Hinduism has nothing to do with Hindutva. He never considered cow as ‘maata‘ and had no problem in consuming beef” the Congress leader said.

“Our fight is with the ideology of RSS. If BJP is voted back to power in 2024, they will first change the constitution and end reservation” he added.

The Congress party had launched a countrywide agitation programme, ‘Jan Jagran Abhiyan’ on November 14 to expose the mismanagement of the economy by the Centre.
