CM Mamta Banerjee: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee verbally attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah ahead of assembly elections in Bengal.
“They [the BJP] are saying that women aren’t safe in West Bengal. Had there been no safety, women in Bengal would not have been able to move around freely at night,” said Banerjee.
Mamata Banerjee then went on to compare her state with the BJP-ruled state of Gujrat. By referring to media reports, she said that the state of Gujrat has been witnessing four rapes and two killings every day for the last two years.
She then called Modi and Shah a ‘syndicate.’ “Remember the Trinamool’s motto — Ma-Maati-Manush (Mother, Motherland, and Humanity). Women will fight for Bengal. Women will build Bengal. This is my vow, on the occasion of International Women’s Day,” she said.

Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress (TMC) had even organised a women’s foot March (pad-yatra) on the occasion of International Women’s Day. A day earlier, PM Modi has accused Banerjee of “betraying and insulting” the people of Bengal.
The West Bengal assembly elections will be held between March 27 and April 29. The votes will be counted on May 2.
