BJP govt at Centre should withdraw farm laws or steps down, says Mamata Banerjee

MIDNAPORE: West Bengal Chief Minister
Mamata Banerjee on Monday contended that the
BJP government
at the
Centre
should immediately
withdraw the “anti-people”
farm
laws or step
down.

Addressing a rally in West Midnapore district, Banerjee asserted that she would rather stay in jail than “remain silent or put up with
BJP‘s misrule”.

“The
BJP government (
at the
Centre)
should immediately
withdraw the
farm bills or step
down. It
should not continue to remain in power after sacrificing the rights of the farmers,” she claimed.

Slamming the
BJP as a party of “outsiders”, the feisty TMC boss said she would never allow the saffron camp to take control of Bengal, and urged the people of the state to resist any such attempt.

She further announced that her government would continue to dole out free ration beyond June next year, after her party returns to power for the third consecutive time.

Elections to the 294-member West Bengal Assembly are likely to be held in April-May next year.
