BJP’s Bid To Overthrow Maharashtra Government Is Unconstitutional: Mamata Banerjee

Standing next to Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched a scathing attack on the BJP. She demanded justice. She attacked the BJP government and said that BJP wants to ‘bulldoze’ democracy. Targeting the BJP, she said, “Don’t break the party with ED, CBI, and money in this way. It could happen to you.”

This is the first time that the chief minister of Maharashtra has stood by the Chief Minister of another state. Directly attacking the Gerua camp, Mamata Banerjee said, “The BJP is trying to overthrow the government in Maharashtra in an unethical and unconstitutional manner. Whoever opposes you will be harassed by ED-CBI.”

She further added, “All are aware of Tripura voting. A democratically elected government can deprive democracy in this way! If anyone opposes him, they come to bulldoze them. Where does so much money come from? Isn’t this another Hawala scandal? ”

Supporting Uddhav, Mamata said, “I am seeking justice for Uddhav. Because, I am sure, after overthrowing the government in Maharashtra, the BJP is plotting to overthrow the government in many other states in the same way. What a democracy! I mean, don’t kill democracy this way. One day or another you have to go, what will you do that day? The ED has sent notices to 200 members of my party, although no one has been charged.”

The issue of floods in Assam also comes to the fore in the words of the Chief Minister. Rebel Shiv Sena MLAs are currently stationed at a luxury hotel in flood-ravaged Assam.

“There has been a huge flood. Why is the central government bothering them instead of extending a helping hand! All of them were sent to Assam to trade as MLAs,” Mamata quipped. “They could have been sent to Bengal instead of Assam. We were very hospitable. I defended democracy.”
