Lok Sabha Elections 2024: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday (May 26) hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) stating that its aspiration to topple the democratically elected TMC government in the state after the Lok Sabha polls will remain unfulfilled. She said that the BJP’s speculation that the days of her government were numbered after the general elections was similar to issuing a veiled threat but such ambitions will not materialise. Her remarks came while addressing an election rally in Sonarpur in the Jadavpur constituency.

"BJP should not dare try to topple a democratically elected government. Its ambitions for success in the Lok Sabha polls will be shattered, as the people's verdict will be with the TMC," she asserted.

She said that the BJP will not cross the 200 seats in the polls and claimed that the Opposition’s alliance will come to power at the Centre.

"My analysis of the last six phases is that the BJP will not cross the 200-seat mark, while the INDIA bloc will come to power in Delhi, in which West Bengal and TMC will play a pivotal part," she said.

Mamata accuses Congress, CPM of aligning with BJP

The Chief Minister claimed that the TMC is solely confronting the BJP in West Bengal and accused the Congress and CPI(M) of clandestinely siding with the saffron party.

"I will support the INDIA bloc but will ensure that CAA and NRC are scrapped and the Uniform Civil Code is not implemented. Every bonafide Indian citizen of any community has the right to live without fear," she asserted.

She alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is plotting to drive a wedge between Muslims and SCs, STs and OBCs. She was referring to the Calcutta High Court order last week in which it scrapped as illegal the OBC status of several classes in West Bengal granted since 2010.

"We respect the judiciary but we will move the higher court against the Calcutta High Court order after summer vacation," she said.

The court had observed that the inclusion of 77 classes of Muslims in the list of backward categories was to "treat them as a vote bank".

"We have already kept 10 lakh jobs ready but the BJP and its friend CPI (M) are plotting to derail the process. They are anti-Bengal," Mamata alleged.
