I like Muslims, no? Will go for Iftar 100 times: TMC chief Mamata Banerjee over Muslim appeasement allegations

If a cow gives milk, one has to be prepared for its kicks also" she said, meaning, she would continue Muslim appeasement if it continues to benefit her

After almost going into a shell for 48 hours, TMC chief Mamata Banerjee brushed off the allegations of appeasing Muslims meted out at her by BJP and indicated that she would continue to attend ‘Iftars’ as the community votes for her party.

Banerjee, while extending the invitation for an Iftar organised by the Kolkata Municipal Corporation in the month end towards the media said, “I am going to the Iftar party. You all also please come.”

She furthered, “I like Muslims, no? I will go there a hundred times. ‘Je goru dudh dei tar lathio khete hoi; (if a cow gives milk, one has to be prepared for its kicks also),” she said, meaning, she would continue Muslim appeasement if it continues to benefit her.

West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee has gone completely delirious after the shocking loss her government had to face at the hands of BJP in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections. BJP made successful inroads in Bengal by securing 18 seats while TMC managed 22 seats.

Mamata Banerjee had obviously not expected that BJP would not only sweep the general elections but would also successfully take away a major chunk of her vote share in Bengal, reducing her numbers from 34, which she secured five years back to 22.

Tipped over by BJP’s thumping victory, Mamata, amongst all the Modi critics and oppositions, has had the worst and the most amusing meltdown. The West Bengal Chief Minister floated conspiracy theories that a ‘foreign hand’ may be involved in BJP sweeping the elections.

The TMC chief also cast aspersions on the voting results and questioned BJP sweeping the states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi. She even alleged rigging of EVMs and involvement of a ‘foreign hand’. She also claimed that a journalist informed her that money was deposited in various bank accounts and people were paid as much as Rs 5,000 to cast their votes for the BJP.

Trinamool Congress Chief and West Bengal Chief Minister claimed that she offered to resign from the post of the chief minister to concentrate on reviving the party but her colleagues at TMC asked her not to do so.

“Ami chair ke chai na, chair er amake chai (I don’t need the chair, the chair needs me),” Mamata said after a party meeting to review the party’s disastrous performance in the Lok Sabha poll.

As per reports, Mamata has also got ‘feedback’ that some TMC leaders ‘took money’ to sabotage TMC’s prospects in West Bengal during the Lok Sabha elections. The party will hold the next review meeting on Friday.
