West Bengal CM and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee slammed BJP president Amit Shah for his ‘Kangal Bangla’ remark.
Earlier BJP president was heard saying, “Mamata Banerjee’s government has reduced ‘Sonar Bangla (Golden Bengal)’ to ‘Kangal Bangla (Beggar Bengal)’.”
“Mamata Banerjee has turned Sonar (golden) Bangla into Kangal (beggar) Bangla. She is only interested in protecting infiltrators to secure her vote bank. But her vote bank won’t be able to save her from imminent defeat,” he asserted.
“We will restore the glory of Bengal,” added the BJP chief, who is targeting 23 of Bengal’s 42 seats in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
“The Mamata Banerjee government is visibly perplexed. She wants to stop me from attending rallies. Can you (Banerjee) prevent your defeat this way? The TMC can stop me from attending rallies but can’t stop the victory march of the BJP in Bengal,” he stated.
Banerjee retaliated saying, “He (Amit Shah) is a fat-head. Half-literate. All they know is how to start a riot… I’m willing to lay down my life, but there will no riot under my watch.”
Banerjee accused Prime Minister and his party of using abusive languages in speeches.
“They are constantly saying we are tolabaj, dacoits, chor, Is this a Prime Minister’s language? Today one of his people said Mamata has made Bengal a beggar. Does he know the meaning of the word kangal? How dare he? Not a single person should vote for this party,” Banerjee added.
The last nine seats that are yet to vote in Bengal will have polling on Sunday. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
