‘Mamata Banerjee will be left all alone’: Amit Shah ahead of West Bengal polls

Union home minister Amit Shah slammed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday ahead of polls in the state. Pointing to a spate of defections from the Trinamool Congress, Shah asserted that Banerjee will be left alone by the time assembly elections are held in the state. Polls to the 294-member Bengal assembly are expected to take place in April-May this year. Several TMC leaders including one of the founding members of the party, Bani Singha Ray, shifted allegiance to the BJP at the rally, which was attended by newly inducted former TMC minister Rajib Banerjee and many others. The TMC's slogan of "Maa, Mati, Manush" (mother, land and people) has been reduced to "dictatorship, tolabaji (extortion) and appeasement", Shah said while addressing the rally through video-conferencing in Howrah district. Watch the full video for more details.

‘Mithun Chakraborty originally a Naxalite; has no respect:’ TMC’s Saugata Roy

TMC MP Saugata Roy took a jibe at yesteryear Bollywood heartthrob Mithun Chakraborty for joining the BJP. Roy said Chakraborty was originally a Naxalite and had changed parties four times. “Mithun Chakraborty is not a star of today. He is a star of yesteryears. He has changed parties four times. He was originally a Naxalite, then went to CPM, then he joined TMC and was made a Rajya Sabha MP. BJP threatened him with ED cases, so he left the Rajya Sabha. He has no credibility, no respect and no influence among the people,” said Roy. Mithun Chakraborty joined the BJP at Brigade Parade Ground on March 7 ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mega rally. He was welcomed into the fold by BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya and state president Dilip Ghosh, among others. Watch the full video for more.
