Voting for Meira to protest against BJP’s atrocities: Mamata

Kolkata, July 17, 2017: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday launched a scathing attack on ruling government and said her party’s support for opposition presidential nominee Meira Kumar is a mark of protest against the BJP’s “atrocities”.

However, she added that her party will respect Ram Nath Kovind if he wins.

Speaking to the media at the West Bengal Legislative Assembly during the presidential elections, Banerjee said “We are voting for Meira Kumar because it’s a vote against the atrocities of the Bharatiya Janata Party, violence in the name of cow vigilantism, interference in federal structure… It’s a vote against injustice.”

“We will have respect for whoever wins the race, which will probably be with BJP’s support. But we want all the opposition parties to come on one platform and unite in the political battle,” she added.

The TMC chief further added that “There has been a super emergency in our country. Any protest against communal politics moves by communal forces to foment tension are being thwarted by the BJP government. And sadly, many political forces are still encouraging BJP. I appeal to them that this is high time we should join together to oppose the BJP-ruled government because it has not only ruined the country’s economy by introducing GST and demonetisation, but also attempting to destroy the secular fabric of the nation.”

Talking on the Darjeeling violence, She alleged that the Centre was not giving paramilitary forces to Bengal to combat Darjeeling situations.

“For the past one month, we are seeking Central forces for Darjeeling. But the Centre is not sending it. In some borders of Darjeeling, the Chinese language is being taught secretly. I have informed the Centre about this. How can Jamat activists from Satkhira enter Bengal to foment communal tension? What are the Central agencies like RAW, NIA and others doing? Why these Jamata activists are allowed to enter our state to create troubles?,” asked the chief minister.
