Agency-raj of an authoritarian govt at Centre makes our task challenging : Mamata

Kolkata: Coming down heavily on the BJP-led Government at the Centre, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday asserted that the ‘agency-raj’ of an ‘authoritarian’ government at the Centre was making her task challenging.

Taking to twitter, Banerjee said, ” This day, in 2011, we were sworn in to replace a 34-year-old monster regime and to usher in the Ma Mati Manush government in West Bengal. We renew the pledge today and rededicate ourselves to the cause of the people. ”

” The agency-raj of an authoritarian government at the Centre makes our task challenging, but millions over the country are with us in our march. Long live 20 May, ” the Chief Minister stated.

On Friday while virtually addressing the people of Bankura district, Banerjee said, ‘ The BJP is so petrified of Abhishek that they’re trying to demean TMC. We’re not just a party, we’re a movement for people’s rights. They can try all they want but we won’t compromise on our integrity. CPI-M rule in West Bengal left a trail of bloodshed and terror in Bengal and deprived people of their basic rights. Now, the unholy nexus of BJP-INC-CPI(M) is trying to exploit and deceive the people of our state. ‘

Charging the BJP with trying to hinder the ‘Trinamoole Nabo Jowar’, Banerjee said, ‘ The fight will continue till the BJP is ousted from power. I won’t genuflect in front of the BJP. I can’t be cowed down by any intimidation, ED and CBI are afraid of the Trinamool Congress, but ‘Trinamoole Nabo Jowar’ can’t be stopped by stopping Abhishek. If needed I will join ‘Jono Sanjog Yatra’ and visit the districts, and ‘Trinamoole Nabo Jowar’ will continue. After routing in Karnataka Assembly election, the BJP will face defeat in every state. ‘

It might be mentioned that her nephew and party general secretary Abhishek Banerjee, who on Friday dared the CBI to arrest him, arrived at Nizam Palace this morning to appear before the investigation officials following summon by the CBI for questioning in regard to the state government-aided school teachers’ recruitment scam case.

Banerjee, who embarked upon a two-month-long ‘Jono Sanjog Yatra’ as part of ‘Trinamoole Nabo Jowar’ from April 25 starting from Cooch Behar in North Bengal to Kakdwip in South 24 Parganas ahead of the Panchayat election, had to cut short his “Jono Sonjog Yatra” and return to Kolkata by Friday night for appearance in the CBI office.

Daring the CBI to arrest him if it can, the MP from Diamond Harbour said during a public meeting in Bankura district. ‘ The ED and CBI have been after me for years. They have spared none – neither my wife nor my secretary nor my lawyer. Their continuous probe for the past three to four years has now become a joke. ‘

After receiving the summon, Banerjee said, ” I have received a summon from the CBI to appear before them tomorrow, on 20th May’23 for examination. Despite not being given even a day’s prior notice, I will still abide by the summon. I will give my full cooperation during the course of the investigation. As for my ‘Jono Sonjog Yatra’ it will resume again on May 22 from the same location in Bankura where I stopped today. Unfazed by this event , I shall strive to serve the people of West Bengal with even greater dedication, zeal and commitment. ‘
