Slamming the Trinamool Congress (TMC) for filing a complaint with the Election Commission (EC) against the media coverage of Prime Minister Modi’s Kedarnath visit, Union Minister Babul Supriyo asked the party not to behave like a crying baby. “TMC should not behave like a crying baby”, said Supriyo.

The BJP leader said that TV channels should have the freedom to decide what they want to cover and that the amount of media coverage a person gets depends on how important the person is. “TV channels should decide what they want to cover. If cricketer Sachin Tendulkar goes to vote and then decide to drive by himself to Pune then media will definitely cover it. It depends on the importance of a particular person on how much media covers him”, said the singer during a media interaction in Kolkata.

Speaking on the incidents of violence in West Bengal during the Lok Sabha elections, Supriyo accused the TMC of inheriting violence from the CPI(M). He said, “Violence is inherited by the TMC through CPI(M) and from there it has spread in the state”. He termed the violence by TMC as bizarre and said that the party has lost its credibility.

“TMC has lost its credibility and if it alleges that BJP is doing violence then people will not believe it. It is fear of losing that TMC is acting in a bizarre manner”, said Surpiyo.

Retorting on the defamation notice sent by Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee to PM Modi for allegedly making “wildly fabricated allegations” against him, Supriyo said that defamation cases could be filed against Mamata Banerjee uses derogatory language against the Prime Minister. “TMC is talking about defamation, we can file millions of defamation cases against the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for her usage of derogatory language in public”, he said.

On the issue of faulty EVMs Supriyo called it a technical thing and said, “Lakhs of EVMs are being used in the country during the polls, couple of them might not work, it is a technical thing that happens with any electronic equipment”, said Supriyo.

Polling for the 7th phase i.e. the last phase of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections ends today and the result will be announced on 23rd May.
