Will support INDIA bloc from outside to form govt at Centre: Mamata Banerjee | India News

NEW DELHI: West Bengal chief minister and TMC chief Mamata Banerjee announced on Wednesday that her party will support the opposition INDIA bloc from outside to form the government at the Centre. She also pledged to repeal the CAA, NRC, and UCC once the BJP government is voted out of power.
Banerjee expressed doubt about the BJP’s ambitious goal of securing 400 seats in the Lok Sabha elections, stating that people will completely reject them.”BJP is claiming that it will win 400 seats, but people are saying it will not happen. The entire country has understood that the BJP is a party full of thieves. We (TMC) will support the INDIA bloc from outside to form a government at the Centre. We will extend our support so that in (West) Bengal, our mothers and sisters never face a problem… and those who work in the 100 days’ job scheme, also do not face problems,” Banerjee said.
However, Banerjee clarified that in West Bengal, her party will not support the Congress and CPI(M), alleging that both parties, despite being part of the INDIA alliance, have joined hands and are helping the BJP in the state. “Do not count on the CPI(M) and the Congress in Bengal. They are not with us, they are with the BJP here. I am talking about that (INDIA bloc) in Delhi,” she clarified.
“They (BJP) are desperate to win. But the country’s voice is also united in calling for their defeat. Nobody was able to predict Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s defeat in 2004. He gave the slogan ‘India Shining’ but the winds changed and the people didn’t vote for him,” she added.
Banerjee criticised the Election Commission for scheduling the polls over a period of two months. “The Election Commission is a puppet and operates according to Modi’s directions. Poll is being held for two-and-half months, have you (poll officials) ever realised the struggle of the common people,” Banerjee said, accusing PM Modi of violating the Model Code of Conduct by allegedly announcing plans to expand the Ayushman Bharat Yojana during the ongoing elections.
The TMC supremo declared her party’s firm stance against the implementation of the CAA, NRC, and UCC in Bengal. Later, Banerjee participated in a roadshow in Howrah to support the party’s Lok Sabha candidate Prasun Banerjee.
