Picking up the thread from her outburst on Monday against the Election Commission for ordering transfer of a DM and five SPs, Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday said she abided by the Constitution, but will not accept any insult to her state.
“I know what is Constitution. I abide by the Constitution. We pay respect as deserved. But no one has the right to insult Bengal. I have not given you the right to insult me give respect to you,” the West Bengal Chief Minister said at a public rally here without naming EC during her half-an-hour- long speech.
Banerjee, who had launched a no-holds-barred attack on theEC on Tuesday after the poll panel ordered the transfer, said that she was not afraid of threats from Delhi. “I will live with my head high as long as I live. I am not afraid of threats from Delhi,” she said.
She alleged that there was no action against two or three people, who with the support from some, were trying to sell out the country. She said that Trinamool Congress (TMC) was born following the ideals of Rabindranath Tagore and Kaji Nazrul Islam.
“The more you attack TMC, the more we will flourish. If we would have got 36 seats, now people of Bengal will give us 42 out of 42 seats in the state,” she said.

Claiming that peace has been restored in Darjeeling hills, which was rocked by a statehood agitation and former Maoist stronghold of Jangalmahal, she said, “those who are taking decisions to move officials and force from these places, would they take responsibility if there is unrest in these places again?”
TMC supremo, who had accused the EC of acting at the behest of Congress to facilitate its victory, came down heavily on the party saying “Congress, as much as you may conspire from your closed confines, you will not be able to do anything and would be decimated.” Congress had complained against the administration and ruling TMC during a meeting with the full bench of the EC on Sunday.
