Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday accused the BJP of misleading people in the name of religion before elections and said nobody needs a lesson on Hinduism from the saffron outfit.
Taking a swipe at the BJP for trying to consolidate the Hindi-speaking vote bank in the state, Banerjee said the ruling party at the Centre had done nothing for them except making fake pre-electoral promises. “They (BJP) only talk about religion when an election comes.
Those who celebrate Diwali, tell me, did BJP start the Diwali or are we celebrating it for many years? These festivals are thousands of years old. BJP is misleading people in the name of religion,” Banerjee said at the inauguration of a Jagadhatri Puja here. (IANS)
