Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said, “Those who can’t properly build a pandal, they want to build a country.”
The CM was referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi Midnapore rally earlier this week, where a makeshift tent collapsed midway through his speech, injuring 90 people.
Mamata launched a scathing attack on the BJP led government, saying that the saffron party along with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was creating ‘Talibanis’ among people.
The CM said the number of BJP’s Lok Sabha seats would significantly come down in states like Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Bihar, Odisha, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu.
“During the no-confidence vote in the Lok Sabha yesterday, they (NDA) got 325 votes, but in the 2019 Lok Sabha election, their strength will come down to barely 100 seats,” she said.
Mamata added that her party will launch a ‘BJP Hatao, Desh bachao’ campaign on August 15. “The way lynching is happening every where in the country, they are creating Talibanis among people. In BJP and RSS, there are good people whom I respect but some are playing dirty games,” she continued.
