West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday (February 2) hit out at the BJP and said TMC will oust the saffron party from the country.
The Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo said that the party is no longer just limited to West Bengal and is expanding to other parts of the country too. “Earlier people would associate TMC with West Bengal. Now, we have expanded the party and are spreading to other parts of the country,” Banerjee said.
Addressing a meeting after being re-elected unopposed as the TMC chairperson, Banerjee said, “I want to tell all, strengthen the party. We will oust BJP from the country. If we can oust Left from West Bengal after 34 years, we will be able to oust BJP too.”
Attacking Congress, the Bengal CM claimed it is working at the “behest of BJP”. “I am sad that Congress works at the behest of BJP in Meghalaya and Punjab. Congress ko ahankaar hain,” she said.
Further, Banerjee said she will follow the footsteps of Rabindranath Tagore and adhere to “Ekla Cholo Re”.
