Mamata Banerjee claims CPM will be demolished after West Bengal polls

Jagatballavpur: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday said the more the Opposition would resort to badmouthing her and her party, the easier it would be to score spectacular success in the ongoing West Bengal Assembly polls.

"The more they will resort to badmouthing and giving bad name to us, the more Trinamool Congress will flourish," Banerjee said at an election rally in Jagatballavpur in Howrah district.

Cautioning the opposition Left Front-Congress combine and the BJP, she said "these accusations will not help. After the elections, the CPM will be demolished, Congress will not be seen and BJP, which only creates religious divide, should not even look at Bengal".

"Who are they (BJP) to lecture us?" the West Bengal chief minister said, adding that they should do their work properly at the Centre.

"Bengal is number one in 100-days' work, Kanyasree scheme and many other projects," she said claiming that the TMC government in its five-year rule had led the state on the path of all-round development.

"CPM had left the state's coffers empty and under a huge debt of Rs two lakh crore, we are doing our best to turn it around from the brink," she stated.

At an election rally in Kolkata on Sunday, Banerjee had said that she would have 'given a thought' before choosing her party candidates for the ongoing Assembly elections, if the sting operation tapes had been 'telecast earlier'.

In a sting operation by news portal Narada News, which it claimed had been done over two years from 2014, several Trinamool Congress MPs and bigwigs including state ministers were shown purportedly accepting bribes from a fictitious company.

Video footage of the sting operation, genuinity of which is yet to be verified by an independent agency, were released by Narada News a few days after Assembly elections in the state were announced.
