You have good fortune that I am sitting ‘silently’, otherwise I would have ‘occupied’ your office in 1 second: Mamata Banerjee to BJP

Amit Shah's roadshow yesterday was marked by violence as clashes erupted between TMC supporters and BJP workers

The state of West Bengal is on tenterhooks as the tussle between the incumbent TMC and the primary challenger BJP gets intense. Amidst this, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee gave a glimpse of her dictatorial tendencies, as she claimed that she has the power to ‘occupy BJP’s office’ in ‘1 second’.

The comment came after a protest broke out in Amit Shah’s roadshow in West Bengal, which saw an unprecedented number of people coming out to attend the roadshow. Threatening BJP, Mamata Banerjee said, “You have a good fortune that I’m sitting silently now, otherwise I can occupy your office in 1 second. Is Amit Shah God that nobody can protest against him?”

Yesterday, Amit Shah’s massive roadshow in Kolkata was marked by violence towards the end when clashes erupted between the supporters of the BJP and the Trinamool Congress. Ahead of the last phase of the Lok Sabha polls, BJP president Amit Shah did a roadshow in Kolkata, which was attended by a huge number of people. Earlier, Mamata Banerjee had tried to scuttle the campaigning of the BJP by not granting permission for a rally by the BJP president.

Amit Shah had blamed TMC workers responsible for the violence that broke out in his rally. Shah claimed that supporters of Trinamool Congress tried to provoke violence and hurl bricks and stones on them. Shah also accused TMC workers of damaging the statue of Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar at the Vidyasagar college to gain sympathy. Asserting that because of central forces, he escaped unhurt, Shah said, “I would not have escaped unhurt without CRPF protection.” Shah also provided proof that the vandalism of the Vidyasagar statue was not done by BJP.

The TMC, on the other hand, has accused BJP supporters of using violence against its supporters. The TMC had also blamed the downing of Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar on the BJP workers, claiming that they all are outsiders who have been brought here for the voting day.

9 Lok Sabha seats from West Bengal are slated to go to polls in the last phase of the Lok Sabha elections to be held on May 19, 2019.
