Chief Minister  Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday expressed grief over the Amarnath terror attack and said that the BJP-led central government cannot give protection to the people of the country as its only job is to divide the country on communal lines. Addressing a public meeting in East Midnapore district, Mamata said, “I feel saddened to hear that Amarnath yatris were killed. This central government can’t give protection to the people of the country. Its only job is to divide the country between Hindus and Muslims. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, the entire country is burning. The Centre is responsible for that.”

Mamata also slammed the Central government for “playing with fire and creating unrest in Darjeeling,” and asserted that peace will soon be restored in the Hills.

“The Centre is playing with fire. It has set Darjeeling on fire. But we will not allow it. We will bring peace in the Hills and not allow them to succeed in its conspiracies,” she added. Mamata reiterated that the BJP is inciting riots in the country and her government would foil such attempts in Bengal.

“BJP’s only job is to burn, kill and incite riots. Some of them roam around the globe. If someone tries to incite violence in Bengal, the people here will stop them. Our war will be against demons who try to divide Bengal. Remember, violence is a pollution and peace is the solution,” she added.

      She should put her hpuse in order before preaching others. Bengal is in a mess with all sort of scandals and uprisings. She cannot control herself but just blames others. Such a wretched leader noy seen till date.

          Congress and friends has lots of money to spend to destabilize the nation and come to power again. Hence- Modi Govt should take strong actions against such traitors and I will say should be eliminated from the root.

              Mamata Begum will prevail over converting Bengal into a Caliphat if Hindus allow it to happen. She will aspire to become the new Baghdadi

                Mamata Banerjee, a gutsy woman who dares to speak up at the evil intentions of the Central government, which in its attempt keep a tight hold on the states, routinely poisons ruling alliances against one another as in the case of Bihar or destabilize through gubernatorial interference or be even prepared to descend to the point of dismembering its sovereign statehood as in the case of Bengal only to attain their supremacy through divisive rule. This state if affairs could be prevented only if more state leaders in the mould of Mamata Banerjee would emerge.
