West Bengal chief minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee gave a dressing down to her party’s firebrand leader MP Mahua Moitra in public on Thursday, the video of which is viral on social media now.
But what went unnoticed was a startling disclosure by Mamata Banerjee that she keeps a tab on party members through West Bengal Police DG and CID, and what conspiracies her party members are hatching.
As BJP IT Cell chief Amit Malviya was quick to point out, the talk on “fascism” and “democracy” apparently takes a “back seat in her police state.”
As for Mahua Moitra, this is what Mamata Banerjee said while addressing an administrative meeting in Krishnagar ahead of municipal elections in the state. The TMC supremo acknowledged internal rifts within the party.
The chief minister was emphatic that party would decide on the candidates in the upcoming municipal elections and her party members shouldn’t indulge in pushing their agenda.
This is what Mamata Banerjee said:
“Mahua I am giving a clear message, who is for or against whom I am not concerned about that. (You will) prepare some people and send them to YouTube, or digital (media) or papers, this politics can work for a day but it will not work forever. And it is also not correct to assume that the same person will be in the same position forever. And when the election comes party will decide who will contest and who will not. Therefore, it is not correct to keep any difference of opinion. Everyone will have to work together, which I have instructed. I am aware of the things.”
Notably, Mahua Moitra was seated on the stage itself when Mamata Banerjee slammed her in public.
Mahua Moitra incidentally is appointed as party’s state in charge in Goa for the upcoming assembly elections in the state.
