'Won't allow Talibanisation in Hindustan,' says Mamata Banerjee during her campaign in Bhabanipur

West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said she will not allow Talibanisation of Hindustan during her campaign in Bhabanipur.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee during her bypoll campaign in Bhabanipur assembly constituency said “we won’t allow Talibanisation in Hindustan”.

She added that Congress is afraid and it somehow manages with BJP at times. “I am not going to do that but will fight,” said the Bengal Chief Minister.

Taking a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party, the CM said: “People have lost their freedom due to BJP. Now, we have to take back that freedom. We won’t allow Talibanisation in Hindustan.”

Mentioning about her 30-year battle with the Left government in Bengal, she added: “We are not like BJP. We fought CPM for three decades even though they injulged in goondaism all through.”

Referring to the Muslim community, she mentioned that after her government came to power, she reserved 99% for the community within the 17% OBC quota.

“Indulging in riot is not my work. My job is to see your community develop. Bengal is No.1 in minority scholarship,” added the chief minister.

Talking on Assam

While referring to Assam’s Dholpur incident, Mamata Banerjee said: “You saw what happened in Assam. A brother was subjected to inhuman torture in the name of eviction. Where is the human rights commission now? They had sent the human rights commission when nothing happened in Bengal but what about Assam.”

“A person was fired upon, killed and people danced on him but no commission is sent. We don’t encourage such things in Bengal. Do you remember how many people were killed due to NRC?” Mamata added.

The chief minister said she will not allow NRC in Bengal. “We won’t allow CAA here. We did not allow it and wont allow it ever,” added the CM.

Protest over post-poll violence

The Bharatiya Janata Party staged a protest at Hazra More, which is a under a kilometre from Mamta Banerjee’s house. The protest had Bengal BJP state president Sukanta Majumdar, MP Arjun Singh Jyotirmoy Sikdar and Bhawanipur bypoll candidate Priyanka Tibrewal, along with the families of BJP workers, who were allegedly killed in the violence after the elections.
