TMC no longer limited to Bengal; ready to take on BJP at pan-India level: Abhishek Banerjee

Bhabanipur: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday termed the BJP as a “jumla (rhetoric) party” and asserted that she would defeat the saffron camp across the country in the days to come. Addressing a public meeting, Banerjee, who is the Trinamool Congress candidate for the September 30 Bhabanipur by-poll, criticised the Centre for not allowing her to attend a global peace meet in Rome and claimed that such attempts by the BJP will not succeed in stopping her.

Echoing her, the TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee said the party will no longer be limited to Bengal and is politically ready to take on the BJP at the pan-India level.

“The BJP is the biggest jumla party in the country. It has only lies and hatred to offer. If you speak against them, they will unleash central agencies against you. They (BJP) are the party of a dancing dragon, who will remove your name from the list of citizenship in the name of CAA, NRC and NPR,” she said.
