West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today slammed the Narendra Modi government, saying demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST) are the “biggest scams”. “Demonetisation and GST biggest scams. We will not bow down our head, we will be happy to go to jail,” ANI quoted her as saying.

Talking to reporters about the Presidential election 2017 in which her party is backing Opposition’s Meira Kumar, Banerjee said, “It’s a vote against injustice. For the sake of the country, we urge everyone to not support BJP and stand beside people.” She also alleged that the Centre has ruined India’s relations with neighbouring countries like Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh. “Centre has ruined relationship with Bhutan, Nepal and Bangladesh. We are the worst sufferers. Where is NIA? intelligence agencies? Why are the borders kept open? What is SSB, IB, RAW doing here?,” she asked while alleging, “People belonging to the Jamaat are being allowed inside.”

Banerjee has been one of the biggest vocal critics of Modi government’s policies.

In a Facebook post on June 29, two days before the GST rollout, Banerjee had flayed the “unnecessary hurry” to roll out GST. She also termed the GST roll-out as another “epic blunder” by the Centre. “We are deeply concerned about GST implementation. After demonetisation, this unnecessary disastrous hurry is another epic blunder of the Centre,” she said.

“ur repeated suggestions to take some more time to properly implement GST have fallen in deaf ears. The entire business community, especially the small and medium ones, are scared and confused. Only 60 hours are left before this ill planned launch and no one knows for sure what’s happening!” she added.

In West Bengal TMC, CPI(M) and Congress’ have supported Opposition nominee Meira Kumar.

    Modi's corrupt party workers are eating "Modi chor ke laddoo"...Those thieves and scoundrels will praise Modi and blabber nonsense... Modi is acting like the ancient despot monarch trying to loot public by imposing arbitrary taxes on expenditures for his honeymoon........ Arbitrary imposition of taxes is theft...A person's income is fruit of his own hard work.... The only right Modi has over your money, is right of a robber.... Modi wants to make India slave.... Arbitrary imposition of taxes is slavery.. If you are made to pay 100 percent of your income as taxes.. You are 100 percent slave.....Read the views of Frederick Douglas, an American Reformist, who was once a slave....

    They say that there are varieties of madness and this lady seem to have a very special one. Instead of focusing on pulling the state out of deep s h i t, she has all the time in the world to blame everyone else and more so Modi.

    Pagli Didi should rather think of how to ditch out the economy of her dwindling state which lots of corruption cases have landed it in trouble. WB is becoming a fist state where governor's rule is becoming more and more imminent.
