BJP Utilizing Tagore’s Name For Vote, Says Mamata

Bolpur (West Bengal): Holding aloft a portrait of Rabindranath Tagore, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee drew a massive crowd during her first roadshow of Assembly polls in Bolpur. Trinamool Congress (TMC) Chairperson claimed that Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) dream of building “Sonar Bangla”(Golden Bengal) will fail as Bengal is already wrapped in gold by Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore.

“The killer of Mahatma Gandhi is the leader of BJP. Those outsiders (BJP) don’t know Vivekananda and Tagore, but are utilizing their names for vote bank politics. They don’t even know where Tagore was born, but are trying to get votes in his name. They are using Visva Bharati by appointing their party worker as Vice Chancellor to malign the sovereignty of Shantiniketan and Tagore,” Mamata claimed while chanting songs of Tagore.

Mocking at the saffron camp, the TMC Chief also said that BJP cannot form the government in West Bengal as they are trying to purchase people in return for money and also by horse-trading of a few TMC MLAs. She further claimed that the BJP doesn’t even know the “basics of Hinduism” and is indulging in “hatred politics” not just in Bengal, but across the country.

“The BJP with its hatred and violent politics is trying to malign Nobel laureates like Amartya Sen and Abhijit Vinayak Banerjee. Instead of addressing the problems of the protesting farmers, they are trying to create untoward incidents in Bengal,” said the West Bengal CM.

Coincidentally, Basudeb Das Baul, who is a folk singer who played the host during Amit Shah’s rally on December 20 also shared the stage with Mamata Banerjee and sang folk songs. TMC’s Birbhum unit president Anubrata Mandal said that the party roadshow was more of Bengali culture as from kirtaniyas to tribal dancers participated in it.

More than three lakh people from across Birbhum participated in the rally. The outsiders don’t know the actual culture of Bengal, but TMC does. Our party pledges to maintain the rich culture of the state,” said Mandal.

According to political analysts, it was a polite reply to Amit Shah’s rally at the same forum.
“TMC supremo could once again turn on her charm signalling a positive side for the TMC. The acid test of the TMC for both testing their popularity in Birbhum and to give a boost to party workers seemed successful in CM’s road show,” mentioned the analysts.

It can be recalled that in 2016 Assembly polls, the TMC owned majority by winning 211 seats, while in 2011 it had won 184 seats.
