Voting for Meira Kumar to protest against BJP 'atrocities': Mamata Banerjee

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.

Last week, party general secretary and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Partha Chatterjee had said, "There has been support from foreign lands to the unrest in the hills, and we have definite proof of that". "We will not bow down our head, we will be happy to go to jail", ANI quoted her as saying.

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 are voting for Meira Kumar because it's a vote against the atrocities of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), violence in the name of cow vigilantism, interference in federal structure". She also urged political parties to vote for opposition party candidate Meira Kumar in the presidential election over NDA candidate Ram Nath Kovind. Bengal is bordered by Bhutan, Nepal and Bangladesh.

"Bengal is sandwiched and so we are worst sufferers". Why are the borders kept open? "What is SSB, IB, RAW doing here?", she asked while alleging, "People belonging to the Jamaat are being allowed inside". "Siliguri corridor is Chicken's Neck, then due to the Centre's faults and because of the deteriorating relations (with neighbours) due to its failure to officiate diplomatically, the central government has ruined ties with Bangladesh, Nepal and China as also Bhutan", the Trinamool Congress supremo said.
