New Delhi: Taking a dig at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday claimed that the former has no place to stand in his state, hence was roaming around in Bengal.
“Ask Yogi to take care of Uttar Pradesh first. So many people have been killed, even police were murdered, so many people were lynched. He doesn’t have a place to stand in Uttar Pradesh that’s why he’s roaming around in Bengal,”Mamata said, on being asked about Yogi Adityanath’s rally in Purulia.

Notably, Yogi’s visit comes amid the ongoing tussle between Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government and the CBI, which sent a team to question police commissioner Rajeev Kumar in Saradha chit-fund scams.
Earlier on Sunday, CM Yogi was scheduled to address a rally at Balurghat in South Dinajpur district, more than 400 km from Kolkata. But he could not attend the rally after permission was denied for his chopper to land near the venue. He, then, addressed the gathering through telephone.
Speaking at the Gantantra Bachao (Save Democracy) rally, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister slammed Banerjee and said her Trinamool Congress government in the state “can suppress people but cannot suppress their voices.”
“Mamata ji must accept that one should not misuse the administration in a democracy. The manner in which the administration in West Bengal is functioning should not be acceptable at all,” he had said.
