West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee spoke aggressively about the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at India’s Trinamool Congress Martyrs’ Day rally but did not talk about a possible opposition alliance. Hundreds of thousands of people joined the rally organized in Dharmatala on the occasion of this day. Mamata called the crowd a ‘tsunami of people’.
In the rally, Mamata opposed the investigation of her party’s leaders and workers by the Central Intelligence Agency. However, today Congress President Sonia Gandhi did not comment on the Enforcement Directorate’s interrogation.
Usually on this day, Mamata gives an indication of the party’s future plans. So this time the interest of the leaders and workers was high.
In the rally, Mamata said, ‘BJP will not get majority in 2024 Lok Sabha elections, I can challenge it. And if they do not get the majority, all other parties will unite.
Advising the opposition parties to try to defeat the BJP in their own way, Mamata said that if the BJP loses in the state, they will lose their majority at the center and then there will be no problem in forming an alternative government.
Mamata did not talk about the ongoing talks of the opposition uniting to form a non-BJP alliance ahead of the elections. Mamata also did not open her mouth about whom the Trinamool Congress will support in the elections for the post of vice president on August 6. Political analysts consider the issue to be very significant. Many feel that this alliance is no longer in a position to form, which is why the chances of defeating the BJP are slim.
Mamata’s displeasure with CPIM (Communist Party of India Marxist) repeatedly raising allegations of financial scams against her party’s leaders in various places, including courts, also came out in her speech.
