Mamata Accused BJP In Trying To Use Religion For Poll
The voting for Lok Sabha elections have already begun from 11th April, however, the mud fight between the parties are still making the news, on Saturday Mamata hit out at BJP for trying to gain political advantage by using religion as a tool to mislead people.
She hit out at armed Ram Navami rallies taken out at BJP at various part of the state and accused BJP of trying to disturb the peaceful atmosphere of Bengal.
The BJP is misleading the people in the name of religion. Ahead of elections, they are using it as a tool to divide the masses in Bengal. The culture of Bengal never supports the politics of violence. They are taking out rallies with swords and mace, Banerjee remarked at an election rally in Darjeeling in support of TMC candidate Amar Singh Rai.
Banerjee also took a jibe at the saffron party and said she has fielded a bhumiputra (son of the soil) from the Darjeeling seat, unlike the BJP, which has nominated a candidate who hails from Manipur adding that, it's sad that the BJP could not find a candidate in Darjeeling and had to bring someone from Manipur to fight the election.
