TMC can stop our rallies, but can’t stop BJP’s victory march: Amit Shah

BJP national president Amit Shah on Monday dared West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to arrest him for chanting “Jai Shri Ram”, claiming that the TMC supremo can stop him from attending rallies in Bengal, but won’t be able to stop BJP’s victory march in the state.

Addressing a rally at Canning, which comes under Joynagar Lok Sabha constituency, he said, “Mamata di gets angry if someone chants Jai Shri Ram. I am chanting Jai Shri Ram here today. If you (Mamata) have the guts, arrest me. I will be in Kolkata tomorrow.”

Hitting out at the TMC government over denial of permission for his chopper to land in Baruipur, Shah said, “The Mamata Banerjee government is visibly perplexed. She wants to stop me from attending rallies. The TMC can stop me from addressing rallies, but can’t stop the victory march of BJP in Bengal.”

Shah’s scheduled rally in Jadavpur Lok Sabha seat was called off on Monday after the state government denied him permission to land his chopper and hold a public address at Baruipur.

Mamata ‘Bengal tigress’, taught lesson to Modi

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday hailed his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee as a “Bengal tigress” and said she had “taught a lesson” to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief attended Banerjee’s election rally in West Midnapore district’s industrial city of Kharagpur in support of her party Trinamool Congress’ Lok Sabha candidate Manas Bhunia.

“Prime Minister Modi is creating problems across the country but West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has taught him a lesson. ‘Didi’ is a Bengal tigress,” Naidu said here, speaking in Bengali which evoked loud cheers from the Trinamool supporters.

He said West Bengal will play an “important role” in forming the new government at the Centre after the 2019 poll results.

“I have come here from Andhra Pradesh to meet you people. What Bengal thinks today, the country thinks tomorrow. Bengal will play an important role in this Lok Sabha election. You people will decide who will come to power at the Centre,” he added.

‘I call you Didi, your slap is a blessing for me’: PM Modi to Mamata

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday hit back at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and said that her “slap” will be a blessing for him.

“I have been told that here Didi has said that she wants to slap Modi. Mamata Didi I call you ‘Didi’, respect you. Your slap will become a blessing for me. I am ready to take that),” Prime Minister Modi said while addressing a rally here.

“But I will also say that you won’t feel scared if you would have dared to slap those who, in the name of chit fund, looted the money of poor people,” he added.

Mamata Banerjee had on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Modi of lying and said when he attacked her party of being a “tolabaaz” (toll collector), she wanted to give him a “tight slap of democracy.”

Speaking at the rally on Thursday, Modi gave an assurance that the “infiltrators that ‘Didi’ and TMC have made their cadres will be identified. Those who trouble our daughters and the cultured Bengalis here, they will be identified.”

“Not enough days are left for those, who have turned ‘Gantantra’ (republic) into ‘Gundatantra’ in West Bengal,” he said.

Earlier in the day on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is insulting the Constitution by saying that she is not ready to accept him as the Prime Minister of the country.

Addressing a rally in West Bengal’s Bankura here, Modi said “Didi (Banerjee) is publicly saying that she is not ready to accept the country’s PM as the head of the nation, but she feels proud in acknowleding Pakistan PM as that country’s prime minister.” He said Banerjee was insulting the Constitution out of anxiety of losing the general elections. The prime minister had tried to contact the chief minister to discuss cyclone Fani but could not do so as his calls were not returned.

Mamata, Kejriwal disappoint Naidu

No Comments

Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu invited several national leaders for his mega rally at Visakhapatnam on Sunday, but finally only West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal responded and attended the rally.

But at the end of the day, both Mamata and Kejriwal disappointed Naidu. Not that they did not speak in favour of Naidu at the rally.

Both of them praised Naidu for his leadership and his efforts to build an anti-Modi front at the national level.

However, Mamata and Kejri did not utter a word against YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, as was expected by Naidu.

While the TDP president castigated Modi for being a chowkidar of Jagan’s alleged corruption, the two national leaders confined themselves to attacking Modi and spoke only on national issues.

They did not even take the name of Jagan, while asking the people to strengthen the hands of Naidu. So, that would hardly benefit Naidu. It appeared they were more interested in promoting themselves, rather than Naidu.

Interestingly, when Kejriwal and Mamata were speaking, the stadium was packed with crowds, but the moment Naidu started speaking, people started leaving the grounds. It was so boring that people started commenting as there was nothing new in his speech.

So, the writing is very clear on the wall in Andhra!
