- Mamata says BJP rule is worse than that of Hitler and Stalin
- Mamata said that BJP-led dispensation was bulldozing the federal structure of the country
- Agencies must be granted autonomy and allowed to work impartially, she said
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday hit out at the Modi government saying the BJP rule is worse than that of Hitler and Stalin.
Speaking on the recent cut in the excise duty by the Central government, Mamata Banerjee said, "They (BJP) do this before any election. Only a small portion of BPL category is under Ujjwala Yojana. How poor people will buy a domestic gas at a cost of Rs 800?"
Alleging that the Union government was using central agencies to interfering into state affairs, Mamata said that the BJP-led dispensation was bulldozing the federal structure of the country.
Banerjee claimed that the "saffron party rule was worse than that of Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin or Benito Mussolini". She stated that central agencies “should be given autonomy" to protect democracy.
"The BJP-led central government is using the central agencies to interfere in the state's affairs. It is bulldozing the federal structure of the country.
There is Tughlaqi rule in force," she said.
"The agencies must be granted autonomy and allowed to work impartially without any political interference," she added.
