    Mamata is scared of defeat, says Dharmendra Pradhan

    West Bengal Election 2021: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has attacked the West bengal chief minister saying Mamata has lost mental balance. She is highly disappointed by negative response in Nandigram. Speaking about UP instead of condoling her (elderly mother of a BJP worker) death is like running away from responsibilities. She is scared of defeat. 

    On Monday, Mamata had said that she did not know how the sister had died. "We don't support violence against women. Amit Shah tweets and says, "Bengal ka kya haal hai." What is the condition in UP? What is the condition in Hathras?" 

    On Monday, former West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya came down heavily on the ruling TMC and the BJP, accusing them of ruining the state and its secular credentials. Bhattacharya, 76, said it is only the Left-Congress-ISF alliance that can bring the state out of the darkness. Noting that "the silence of a crematorium" prevails in Singur and Nandigram, he alleged that under the present dispensation, the state has gone backwards in agriculture, while no industry was established during its 10-year-tenure.
