‘Want peace in Bengal, not riots,’ says CM Mamata Banerjee at Eid function

In a veiled attack against the BJP, West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Saturday alleged that she was ready to give her life but would not allow the country to be divided by people pursuing politics of hate.

Speaking at a congregation for Eid namaz at Kolkata’s Red Road, Mamata said: “We want peace in Bengal. We don’t want riots. We want peace. We don’t want divisions in the country. Those who want to create divides in the country – I promise today on Eid, I am ready to give my life but I will not let the country divide.”

Banerjee further alleged that she would continue to fight and would not “cow down” to what she called a “gaddar party”. “A ‘gaddar party’ with whom I have to fight, I have to fight agencies too – I fight them because I have the courage to do so but I am not ready to cow down,” the TMC supremo said.

The West Bengal Chief Minister went on to accuse the BJP of attempting to divide Muslim votes in the state. “Someone takes money from BJP and says that they will divide Muslim votes. I tell them that they don’t have the courage to divide Muslim votes for BJP. It is my promise to you today. There is one year to elections. See who will get elected and who won’t,” Banerjee added.

She went on to say, “If democracy will go away, everything will go away. Today Constitution is being changed, history is being changed. They brought NRC; I told them that I will not let them do that.”
