The Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee held a rally exactly one week after Home Minister Amit Shah's victorious parade at West Bengal's Bolpur
The Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee held a rally exactly one week after Home Minister Amit Shah's victorious parade at West Bengal's Bolpur, the town of Noble Laureate Rabindranath Tagore's Visva Bharati University.
She accused the BJP of calling them outsiders and accused them of instigating "hate and fake politics".
The Chief Minister ridiculed the infiltrators of Gandhian philosophy and Rabindranath Tagore who preach the ideology of "Sonar Bangla". She urged the people to protect the place from the communal onslaught of the BJP.
The West Bengal Chief Minister addressed a crowd of thousands of supporters brought in buses after a four-kilometer roadshow near the famous university set up by Tagore, around 150 km from Kolkata.
Ms. Banerjee accused Bidyut Chakrabarty, Visva Bharati Vice-Chancellor of destroying the rich heritage of the hallowed institution by "importing divisive and communal politics inside its campus".
She also invited Baul folk singer Basudeb Das Baul on stage to sing for the crowd, one-upping Amit Shah's gesture of having lunch at his home earlier this month.
