The West Bengal Prime Minister pointed her guns at the Union Minister of the Interior and unleashed a barrage of charges against him.
“Amit Shah is getting frustrated because there is little turnout at his rallies. Instead of ruling the country, he is sitting in Calcutta and is plotting a conspiracy to harass TMC leaders. What do they want? Do they want to kill me? Do you think they Will they win these elections by killing me? They are wrong, “he said at a rally in Mejía.
The TMC chief threatened to organize a protest in front of the Electoral Commission office if the BJP “continued to interfere with the operation of the voting panel.”
Speaking in a wheelchair to a public meeting in Bankura, Mamata Banerjee said: “The farmers have been protesting for six months, yet the ministers are not holding talks with them.

A change has come … Even Mamata didi has started visiting temples and has taken the ‘Chandi Way’. Isn’t this a change? This is the new India. Each and every person has to go to God, “said Adityanath.
