“Trinamul and its supreme leader believe taking everyone on, feat none behind… not like the BJP…. Non-Bengalis area unit treasured and revered here, they thrive here, however an equivalent courtesy isn’t accorded to Bengalis in different states,” aforementioned Basu.

Later within the day, Mamata too abroach the topic at a Chhath Puja event within the town.

“There area unit some WHO return from outside solely prior to elections, deliver lofty speeches and leave…. not like them, we tend to stick with the plenty 24×7, three hundred and sixty five days a year,” aforementioned the chief minister, occurring to hope for defeat of these WHO allegedly attempt to divide to rule.
