Mamata Banerjees Retort At PMs Jibe On Violence

By Preeti Sigh On 18 May, 2018

The complete panchayat poll results were yet to be declared. But West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said in Kolkata on Thursday evening, despite a united opposition and huge propaganda against it, the Trinamool Congress was set to win 90 per cent of the rural seats in the state. "We have been humiliated. Even by the prime minister, which we didn't expect. No chief minister speaks about a prime minister like this. It is not in the constitution," she said. "Prime minister spoke without cross-checking facts. 10 TMC men have been killed by BJP people," she added, "But people are with us." On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the panchayat poll in Bengal was a murder of democracy. He also said workers of every political party except Trinamool had been killed in poll related violence. "Some blood has been shed, some incidents of terror, some sporadic incidents have happened, something we didn't want, " Ms Banerjee said. "But in Bengal, panchayat poll is a political affair, unlike in others states. Local enmity comes into play, also family problems as members of the same family contest against each other. But of 13 people killed, 10 were of the Trinamool and CPM-BJP jointly murdered them. The FIRs say so," she added. She complained angrily of multi-pronged attacks on her. "What has not been done against us? On one side, government of India, all kinds of cases in Calcutta High Court and Supreme Court. I haven't been able to work...Obstacles at every step. I have not seen anything like this," she said.
