West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will not attend the Opposition meeting to be held on 13 January in Delhi. Mamta has decided to boycott the meeting. Speaking in the Bengal assembly, Mamata Banerjee said that the Congress and CPM are doing dirty politics in the state. For this reason, I have decided to fight alone against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Citizenship Register (NRC).
On Wednesday, Mamata Banerjee also targeted the Left parties on the Bharat Bandh and said that it has remained just a sign board. Mamta Banerjee said that she opposes this strike. They protest against the way violence is being done in Bengal in the name of protest, tires are being burnt. He said that such demonstrations would not be approved in Bengal.
Taking a dig at the left parties, Mamta Banerjee said that the left parties want to gain publicity by performing like this. The Left wants to register its presence by committing violence, because they cannot do all these demonstrations in Delhi, hence coming to Bengal. His party office is here, if violence happens, the police will take action.
Let me tell you, a nationwide bandh was called by the Left parties on the issue of CAA and NRC on Wednesday, but Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her government opposed. During the bandh, there were clashes between Trinamool Congress and Left party workers in many places in Bengal. It is believed that Mamta Banerjee is angry with this attitude of the left parties, that is why she has decided to keep away from the opposition.
