West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said Sunday that her Trinamool Congress’ “landslide victory” in the state assembly election was a vindication of the party’s fight to protect communal harmony. Mamata, who ran for and lost the Nandigram seat, stated that she chose to fight from there rather than her home seat of Bhabanipur in the city because she led the anti-farmland acquisition movement there.
In West Bengal, the BJP and the Election Commission engaged in dirty politics, according to Mamata Banerjee.
Mamata accused the Election Commission and the BJP of playing dirty politics and making life difficult for the Trinamool Congress in the state. She added that the people of Bengal – mothers, sisters and brothers, minorities and youth – supported the TMC, which helped it win the election. “The EC treats us in an impolite manner… It fought with us in the same way that a BJP spokesperson would. We will take it to court “She stated. She stated that the TMC, along with other like-minded parties, will file a petition with the Supreme Court’s constitutional bench against the EC. “Two, three nominated individuals cannot decide the fate of this country and its elections,” she stated.
She thanked the leaders of various parties for congratulating her on her historic victory. Mamata stated that she has information about counting malpractice and that her party will take the matter to court if necessary. She did not, however, comment on the performance of the Left or Congress. “Inquire with the Left and Congress about this. It is an internal matter for them. It’s not appropriate for me to say anything.”
While the date of the inauguration will be determined later, the Bengal CM stated that the TMC will observe Rabindra Jayanti on May 9 to express gratitude to the people.
When asked about the possibility of a lockdown, she stated “Not talking about it right away. Let me first consult with my officers. There have been some notifications “..
Mamata had set a goal of winning 221 West Bengal seats.
Despite the BJP’s calls for a double engine government (government of the same party at the Centre and the state), Mamata said she had set a target of winning 221 of the 294 seats and thanked the people for voting for the TMC in such a way that it was able to win with huge margins in a number of seats. “I thank the people for rescuing the country and preserving communal harmony. Bengal makes me proud. It is a landslide victory, and no one will be able to say anything. They (the BJP) claimed to have won 200 seats. Can they show their faces now?, “She predicted and hoped that the BJP would face a similar rout in other polls.
