"From morning to night, the Congress, CPI-M and BJP leaders are lodging complaints against me. I will seek answer
inch by inch. It is my fundamental right. I don't need a certificate from them. I only need certificate from people. The people will given them a befitting reply through ballots," she told election meetings in Birbhum district.

In an apparent reference to the Election Commission, she said, "City police commissioner was removed, a large number of OCs were changed. It is being done at the behest of the Congress, CPI-M and BJP".

"A political vendetta is on against a particular party," she said.

On the Opposition demand for arrest of TMC leader from Birbhum Anubrata Mandal, she retorted, "Why should Anubrata
be arrested? Why Md Selim, Biman Bose, Sujan Chakrabarty and Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee should not be arrested?"

The Election Commission, which had earlier showcaused Anubrata Mandal, also censured him.

Pointing out that people could not vote during the 34 years of Left rule in the state, Banerjee asked where were
those people who were now shouting.

The TMC supremo said that Congress, BJP leaders come to the state during election time after five years and talk big but they did nothing for the people.
