West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday criticized the Bharatiya Janata Party’s alleged attempt to topple the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra, terming it an “immoral and unconstitutional” method.
He said that the BJP has deliberately tried to put the Maharashtra government in trouble at a time when the presidential election is approaching.
The Trinamool Congress chief told reporters at the state secretariat, “It is unfortunate that the federal structure is being completely demolished by the BJP-led central government. They are trying to topple the Maharashtra government in an immoral and unconstitutional way.
Referring to the current political crisis in Maharashtra, Mamta said, “Which direction is democracy going? How will justice survive if a democratic government destroys democracy? We want justice for the people, for the mandate of the people and for Uddhav Thackeray (CM of Maharashtra). ,
The rebel Shiv Sena MLAs, who are leading the MVA, had gone to Surat on Tuesday, where they left for Guwahati in a chartered plane after a day’s stay. It appears to be an attempt to topple the MVA government in Maharashtra.
The Trinamool Congress chief asked the BJP to send the MLAs to Bengal instead of Assam, where she would give them good hospitality.
“Why are you putting the Assam government in trouble when they are facing floods? Send them (MLAs) to Bengal and we will give them good hospitality and also take care of democracy.
Referring to the Enforcement Directorate’s summons to leaders of opposition parties, he claimed that at least 200 Trinamool Congress workers have been asked by central agencies to appear before them even though they are not accused.
“Today, you (BJP) are ruling (at the Centre) and that is why you are using money-force and mafia… don’t destroy democracy like this. Don’t disintegrate political parties using money or ED and CBI. ,
He insisted that after Maharashtra they would try to bring down other governments as well.
The Trinamool Congress chief alleged that voters were harassed in the by-polls to four Assembly seats in Tripura on Thursday.
“It (BJP) did not allow people to vote today,” he claimed. ,
