2024 Lok Sabha Polls: Mamata Didi Roars "Khela Hobe in Assam, Tripura"
The statement by West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee was in context to the next Lok Sabha elections in Assam, Tripura and Delhi in 2024
KOLKATA: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said on Saturday that Khela has happened in West Bengal and now Northeastern states including Assam and Tripura along with the nation's capital Delhi will witness the same (Khela). The statement by Mamata was in context to the next Lok Sabha elections in the states in 2024.
Addressing a large number of youths on the occasion of the foundation day of the Trinamool Congress (TMC)"s students' wing Trinamool Chatra Parishad (TMCP), Mamata said West Bengal has witnessed Khela in the last election and that the same is going to happen in Assam, Tripura and Delhi. The TMC chief also said a meeting of all chief ministers would be held for discussion on a federal structure.
Taking a swipe at the BJP, Mamata said the BJP has been busy in just two jobs - firing bullets and hurling abuses. She also flayed the saffron brigade alleging that the BJP had used help of agencies like the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) after they failed in competing with the TMC in the battleground of politics.
It is pertinent to mention that the TMC garnered substantial attention from all corners of the country after Sushmita Dev, who held the position of the president of All India Mahila Congress, left the grand old party and joined the TMC earlier this month.
Sushmita, daughter of seven-time parliamentarian and Congress stalwart late Santosh Mohan Dev, met TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee in Kolkata on August 16 and joined the party officially in presence of Banerjee and MP Derek O'Brien on that day. Following Sushmita's joining the TMC, over 500 people, who were associated with the Congress, resigned from the party and switched to the TMC in South Assam's Cachar district.
