Targeting Narendra Modi who has accused her of vote bank politics, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee today alleged that those who had blood on their hands should not talk about the country.

“It does not behove well to talk about the country for those who have blood on their hands,” Banerjee, the West Bengal chief minister, told an election rally here in North Dinapur district.

Stating that Trinamool Congress was in the central government when Atal Behari Vajpayee was the Prime Minister, she said without naming the BJP prime ministerial candidate that Gujarat had witnessed riots and the people did not support riots.

“I am ready to give my life, but will not allow division of Hindus and Muslims,” she said, adding that the Trinamool Congress stood for communal amity and respect for all religions.

Claiming that the BJP would not get a single seat this time even if it had the funds, she alleged that both the BJP
and Congress had joined hands in dividing the country which became evident on the Telangana issue.

She alleged that Congress was selling out the country and said it was responsible for the price spiral of essential
commodities, corruption, and recurrent increase in price of petro products ruining the livelihood of the common man.

Banerjee urged that her party be elected to power to save the country and claimed “Only the Trinamool Congress can
form the government in Delhi.”

    I had been to Kolkata where people are lethargic to do their routine work specially government offices. With no industries, with no transparency, no checks, people are exploiting the nation in anti-national activities. Manufacturers are now traders. This is not West Bengal which learned Tagore, Ram Krishna Mission blended. Almost every where one sees unpunctual Gutka Chewing intoxicated people regulating the legal machinery.

      I am surprised that the people of Bengal would still elect this person. We are in the 21st century and we still have people who live on hate and lies. Bengal will never develop and move into the 21st century with people like her. Look at Calcutta, its decaying, no jobs, no industry. People live in the past glory talking about tagore pretending to be intellectuals. You guys who support this troll need a reality check. Time to catch up with the rest of India.
