Let’s have a fair play. You can fight with Left & Congress in your team, we will fight alone. I will only be a goalkeeper and see how many goals you can kick: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata https://t.co/ikJyeaTfHU
The chief minister further said that she will fight alone and BJP can go with the Left and Congress. “Let’s have a fair play. You can fight with the Left and Congress in your team, we will fight alone. I will only be a goalkeeper and see how many goals you can kick,” Banerjee said. This comes just days after Prime MInister Narendra Modi invoked a football analogy to target Mamata Banerjee.
PM Modi said that the people of West Bengal like football and that he will use that game’s terms to explain what is happening in the state. He then said that she has committed many fouls and that this time people of the state will show ‘Ram Card’ to chief minister Banerjee.
Earlier today, Home Minister Amit Shah launched ‘Poribartan Yatra’ from Cooch Behar in Bengal. He slammed Mamata Banerjee for ‘not allowing people to chant Jai Shri Ram’. Speaking in Cooch Behar, Shah said that such an environment has been created that raising Jai Shri Ram slogans has become crime in Bengal. “Mamata Didi, if slogans of Jai Shri Ram are not raised here, will it be raised in Pakistan?” Amit Shah said in Coochbehar
The Home Minister further said Mamata Banerjee keeps on quarrelling with Prime Minister Modi. “She even quarrelled during Subhash babu’s program. It was Subhash babu’s event, you could have refrained from politics there,” he said. Shah was referring to an incident when Banerjee refused to speak in protest at an event at Victoria Memorial to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose after ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans were raised when she was invited to speak.
