Trinamool Congress was ready to provide “full support” to the Narendra Modi government at the Centre if there was “constructive work” for the benefit of all sections of people, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Saturday.

“I still feel that if you run the government in a good way, if your work is constructive and genuine and for the welfare of all sections of the people, you will get our full support”, The Trinamool Congress chief said.

In an apparent dig at BJP she said “dividing the people on basis of religion will not be allowed.”

“We must abhor the politics of division. It is against our culture. There is difference between governance and politics. The two must not be mixed”, she said at a communal harmony rally organised by TMC where religious leaders of different religions also participated.

“Do not spare me even if I commit a wrong. But only spreading lies, canards and vilification campaign and attempts to create riots is not religion”, she said.

“One thing should be clear, we will not accept politics of division, destroying the temple and setting fire to mosque. What was the need to create trouble in a church in Delhi”? she asked while addressing a Trinamool Congress rally to mark the anniversary of Babri Mosque near the Gandhi statue here.

Banerjee accused the BJP-led government at the Centre of selling out the country.

“They are selling the country. We have a social responsibility.

What has the new government done? FDI in Railways. FDI in defence. Deregulating the diesel prices. They have hiked excise duty on fuel”, Banerjee said.

“We are fulfilling the commitment we made to the people. We are fulfilling the promises we made in our Manifesto”, Banerjee said referring to her party upping the ante against the Centre over several issues concerning the masses.

“I will only work for the people. Those who have a sense of responsibility cannot commit any wrong. Nothing can be taken for granted”, she said.

        I never hate a politician more than what I have for MB. As a leader of a party and state, she needs to work to earn respect.

            What a joke Mamata ji. You have been destructive all along and now you are telling the voters that you will support Modi government if it is constructive. Dear Mamata the w of India knows how destructive you have been ever since you took control over Bengal and your foul language at Modi is all well doented. Mamata I think you need to grow up and need to learn civility and diplomacy. Hooliganism has been your way and is in your ministers blood and to expect you will support means day dreaming. TMC believes in destruction and need to learn the meaning of constructive work. God bless Bengal if Mamata continue as CM of Bengal any longer.
