Recently, during the TMC Martyr’s Day rally on 21 July, Mamata had said, “We need to strengthen our booths. We have to work for the villagers. I want all our party workers to intensify their door-to-door meetings with the people at their respective houses, tea stalls etc. We need to work hard in every block, booth and district. There is no place of complacency and we need to fight back against the divisive politics of BJP.”
She further said that her party is poor, so she will demand for electoral reforms. "All parties are not like the Bharatiya Janata Party, my party is very poor and therefore I speak on electoral reforms". The Bengal chief minister will also be holding a meeting with MLAs on Monday in order to strengthen the mass outreach campaign, reported News18.
