Mumbai: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party, calling it a “junk party” to include “rotten” leaders of other political organizations.
Referring to the ongoing farmers’ movement, the Trinamool Congress chief said that India is staring at the food crisis due to the BJP’s “unbearable” attitude towards the three new agricultural laws.
“The country is staring at a food crisis. If the BJP remains adamant on agricultural laws, there will be a scarcity of food in our country. Farmers are the property of our country and we should not do anything which is against their interest.” Banerjee said while addressing a rally in Nadia district ahead of the 2021 West Bengal assembly elections.
Mamata demanded immediate withdrawal of the three agricultural laws demanded by the agitating farmers on the borders of Delhi.
Mamata said that while attacking the BJP for raiding leaders of other political parties, Mamta said, “BJP is the largest junk party in the country. It is filling its rank and file from other parties with corrupt and rotten leaders.”
She said, “You must have seen some (TMC) leaders in the BJP. They have done this to protect the property looted by the public They have done it to protect the public money they had looted. The BJP runs the party like a washing machine, where corrupt leaders turn into saints the moment they join them.”
She later drew a resemblance between BJP cadres and supporters of US President Donald Trump, who recently made their way inside the US Capitol.
Mamta Banerjee claimed that the day the BJP loses the election, its cadres and supporters will behave like this.
