Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, in a Trinamool Congress rally held in Hooghly’s Serampore on Thursday, asked the voters not to call her a liar, even at the cost of slapping her.
The Chief Minister said, “If I have done anything wrong, give me two slaps. I won’t think about it. If you tell me, I will go and wash your utensils. Tell me if I have done anything wrong. But if you call me a thief, if you spread canards, if you insult Bengal, it hurts. Don’t insult Bengal, it hurts me.”
Just two days ahead of the fifth phase of West Bengal assembly elections, Mamata lashed out at the opposition parties saying that she sensed conspiracy by other party’s leaders in Delhi to defeat TMC.
In the fifth phase, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will face the test from Bhabanipur constituency along with her key rivals Deepa Das Munshi, former Congress MP, and wife of Congress veteran Priya Ranjan Das Munshi, and the BJPs Chandra Bose, Netaji Subhas Chadra Boses grand-nephew.
Fifth phase of Bengal assembly election is scheduled to take place on Saturday.
