West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee has described Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as a party of ‘fekus’ (those who bluff) who threaten people with bullets and guns to divide the country on the basis of religion. “BJP is a feku party. It is only interested in giving out fake news. It is trying to divide the country on the basis of religion and are threatening people with guns and bullets,” she said. “I was born in Hindustan, not in a nation governed by BJP who attack people with guns and bullets,” the Trinamool chief added.
Launching a veiled attack on Union Minister Anurag Thakur, Mamata Banerjee asked how a central minister continues in a constitutional post despite speaking unconstitutionally.
Banerjee, while speaking at a convention of Trinamool Congress workers at Krishnagar in Nadia district, also slammed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for his “goli vs boli” comment. She also slammed the BJP-led government at the Centre for destroying the harmony in the country by forcibly trying to implement the Citizenship Amendment Act, the NPR and the NRC.
Earlier on Tuesday, she termed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as the party of 'Dussasanas', the brother of Kaurava prince Duryodhana in the epic 'Mahabharata' and "offsprings of Muhammad-bin-Tughlaq", the Sultan of Delhi from 1325-1351 known in history for his eccentric ways.
"We (TMC) are not a party of Dussasanas like the BJP. They are the offsprings of Muhammad-bin-Tughlaq and people must unite to save the country from them," Banerjee said while speaking at a public rally at Ranaghat in Nadia district.
Launching a scathing attack against the centre over CAA and NRC, Mamata said, "Will you (BJP) drive me out of the country because I don't have my mother's birth certificate?". She further likened Modi government's contentious act as black magic. "The NPR, NRC and CAA are like black magic," Mamata added.
