CM Mamata Banerjee Alleges China 'Interfering' In West Bengal

Mamata Banerjee

Talking to reporters about the Presidential election 2017 in which her party is backing Opposition's Meira Kumar, Banerjee said, "It's a vote against injustice".

Ms Banerjee's Trinamool Congress was present at meeting on Friday evening at which Home Minister Rajnath Singh briefed the leaders of almost 20 opposition parties on the border confrontation which began on June 16 and which has involved repeat warnings from China of "serious consequences".

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today slammed the Narendra Modi government, saying demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST) are the "biggest scams".


"We will have respect for whoever wins the race, which will probably be with BJP's support".

After Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti claimed that China was interfering in matters of the state, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has come out with a similar accusation of China meddling in their state as well.

Banerjee while briefing the media on the meeting said, "We will play an aggressive role in Parliament". After all this, we will not bow down our heads rather fight and be happy to go to jail. She was reportedly asked by the Foreign Ministry to defer her visit given the tension; however, three union ministers visited China earlier this month for sessions of the bloc that calls itself BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa). It connects Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sikkim, Darjeeling hills, Northeast India and the rest of India. "People belonging to the Jamaat are being allowed inside", she was quoted as saying by ANI. "Only 60 hours are left before this ill planned launch and no one knows for sure what's happening!" she added. The Opposition plans to corner the government over these issues in the Monsoon Session that started on Monday and will continue till August 11.
