After Arvind Kejriwal, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. She has been repeatedly accused in several scam and riots along with her ministers. However, her idiocracy reached its peak when she blamed Narendra Modi for the arrest of her party lawmakers in a ponzi scam.
Furious over the arrests, she urged President Pranab Mukherjee that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should quit and make way for a “national government” to be headed by senior BJP leader LK Advani or Finance Minister Arun Jaitley or Home Minister Rajnath Singh. She asks President Pranab Mukherjee to step in and “save the country from Narendra Modi”.
“It is high time the President intervened and saved the country. That person (PM Modi) can’t lead the nation. He should step down. There should be a national government,” said Mamata. She also said that all opposition parties should keep aside their differences and come together to save the nation.
Mamata Banerjee’s rant comes a day after the President’s New Year message in a live video conference with Governors said that the notes ban announced on November 8 could lead to a temporary economic slowdown. Hailing that statement, she said, “I have never seen such a vindictive government at the Centre. They are breaking age-old institutions like the Planning Commission and others. They are breaking the backbone of the government.”
She also alleges that the Central government conducts a “reign of terror” on those critical of its policies, and ban on the two notes had led West Bengal incurring a loss of whooping Rs. 5,500 crore. Mamata went to accuse centre of using CBI to target her party men as revenge for her aggressive campaign against the notes ban.
Recently, Trinamool minsters Tapas Pal and Sudip Bandyopadhyay were arrested in connection with the “Rose Valley scam” worth 15,000 crores. Following the arrest, Trinamool goons attacked the BJP office in Hooghly, 60 km from Kolkata, and was set on fire. A bomb was also thrown at the home of BJP leader Krishna Bhattacharya.
