New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday said that Congress cannot form government on its own and the party will have to seek help from others. “Congress failed to put up a fight against the BJP, the saffron party grew from strength to strength,” said Banerjee while addressing a public meeting in Raiganj.
Talking about ‘mahagathbandhan‘, Banerjee said that alliance have been formed in every state to oust PM Modi. “Once he is voted out of power, all of us can work together to build a new India,” she stated, adding that TMC has “never compromised in its fight against communalism”.
Furthermore, she claimed that Adolf Hitler would have committed suicide if he witnessed PM Modi’s activities. “Modi has been baptized in politics through riots and mass killings. He is the king of fascists. Had Adolf Hitler been alive, he would have committed suicide seeing Modi’s activities,” the West Bengal CM stated.
Banerjee also alleged BJP does not like West Bengal and Bengalis and that is why they have stopped the process to rename the state to Bangla.
Earlier on Monday, Trinamool supremo had asserted that her party would play a crucial role in forming the next government at the Centre. “There will be no government formed without the TMC. They (the BJP) have only one arrogant man in him (Prime Minister Narendra Modi). But we have so many leaders who have credibility… So, we will decide it (on the PM face of the opposition alliance) later.. Let the elections be over,” she told a Bengali news channel.
Referring West Bengal as a “friend, philosopher and guide” to the country, the TMC chief said she is not hungry for power but wants the state to help form the next government. “I do not want power. I want Bengal to show the path and help form a new government at the Centre. When nobody can, it’s Bengal that can show the light,” Banerjee said.
