Hooghly: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday remarked that the women in Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are not safe and urged people not to send their women in the party.
Speaking at a rally here, Banerjee said: "Today, if I tell each and every story on BJP women, they will hang their heads in shame. Today, BJP women are not safe, do not send women to that party. Many people have kept silent and cannot speak on this issue. Whereas, women of our party are respected like one respects a mother...The reason why there is peace in West Bengal is that it is a land of mothers and sisters."
Challenging the BJP head-on, the West Bengal Chief Minister said: "Khela to hobei re" (The game will commence).
"We have to correct BJP through this game. Whether they will stay in the country tomorrow or not. If you defeat them in this game in Bengal, please know, they will say farewell to this country," she said
She also said if BJP comes to power, they will appoint thugs in the areas and grab control of the aspirations of the children.
"Gujarat will not control Bengal. Bengal will control Bengal. Modi will not control Bengal. Thugs will not control Bengal," she added.
Banerjee also challenged the BJP to arrest 20 lakh Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers in Bengal, including herself.
