New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Setting the stage for next year's Assembly elections, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on the BJP and said that "outsiders" and "people from Gujarat" will not be allowed to run Bengal. Addressing the annual Martyr's Day rally through video conferencing, Banerjee accused the Narendra Modi-led central government of neglecting West Bengal.

"The Central govt has neglected us. People of West Bengal will give them a befitting reply. Outsiders will not run the state. There are some people who don't have any political experience. They speak of killing people & setting things ablaze," Banerjee said.

"We will throw the BJP out of West Bengal in the 2021 Assembly elections. Trinamool Congress will form the government again. The next elections will show a new direction to the state as well as to the country."

 

Referring to the recent political developments in Rajasthan and change of government in Madhya Pradesh, the West Bengal CM said that while the country is busy fighting the coronavirus pandemic, the BJP is busy destabilising the elected governments.

"A conspiracy is being hatched by the Union government to destabilise the elected government of Bengal by using central agencies and money power. BJP is the most destructive party the country has ever seen. When the country is busy fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, the BJP is busy destabilising the elected governments in Rajasthan and West Bengal after Madhya Pradesh," she said.

 

Without taking any name, Banerjee said that "one party" was trying to incident communal riots in West Bengal.

"Everyone from a refugee to someone belonging to the royal family are equal for me. But, an attempt is being made to stir up communal disharmony. A party is trying to incite Hindu-Muslim riots. Remember that people from faiths are equal. This country, Bengal is for all," Banerjee said.
