Toofanganj: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Monday exuded confidence that her party has already secured a “majority” even as she alleged the central forces deployed in the state, have “misbehaved” with voters.
“Five phases of the election are over and TMC has already secured comfortable majority. We (TMC) will form the next government. But I want seats from Coochbehar district (which has nine Assembly segments),” Banerjee said during her poll campaign in Coochbehar district.
“The central paramilitary forces have misbehaved with voters and also with those who are handicap. This is totally unacceptable,” she said. Banerjee took the credit of settling the 68-year-old enclave issue.
“None of the governments in Bengal could solve the enclave problem. But last year I have solved the problem and had ensured that people get their rights,” she said.
Bangladesh and India have exchanged 162 adversely-held enclaves on Aug 1, 2015, ending one of the world’s most complex border disputes that had lingered for seven decades.
111 Indian enclaves measuring 17,160 acres became Bangladesh territory and similarly 51 Bangladesh enclaves measuring 7,110 acres became Indian territory.
