“Ami Ekta moot udyeshyo nice Kollam (I stated it with a noble purpose). That small development tasks of our poor authorities — which include Kanyashree, Sabuj Sathi, Khadyo Sathi — have to reach the loads, to be alert so that no person is able to take any percentage of the advantages,” the leader minister said in her hour-lengthy Martyrs’ Day speech.

Over four hundred protests annoying the refund to reducing money have taken location across the country due to the fact then. Several Trinamul leaders have purportedly returned lakhs of rupees taken as the cut cash.
“Dacoit chiefs, the chiefs of thieves of the BJP commenced going to locations, saying ‘return reduce money’. The biggest dacoit, how dare you ask Trinamul to return the money?” she requested.

But on Sunday, the Trinamul leader tried to shift the focus to the BJP.
“Trinamul is a party of the bad, which is why even lizards dare assault it. The celebration of the wealthy, even airplane, can’t dent it. Kotogulo Lucho change aar kotogulo at mach, trader boro kotha (A handful of shrimp and lota fish, such lofty statements they make). You took an enormous amount of black cash. You spent lakhs of crores on the elections. Return it all,” she said.
Mamata announced that Trinamul might launch a country-huge “black cash price dao” agitation on the block and booth levels on July 26 and 27 worrying the switch of Rs 15 lakh from the BJP to the bank account of every citizen.

The chief minister — who time and again referred to the alleged horse-buying and selling by using the BJP to fell non-NDA governments in Karnataka, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh — accused the saffron camp of seeking to engineer defections in Bengal.
“Gram sabha, the price is Rs 20 lakh. For MLAs — a north Bengal MLA who I concept become going told me in my opinion — the fee is Rs 2 crore and a petrol pump,” she said.
“Such insatiable greed right after the Lok Sabha (polls)? Why are this rush to break (non-NDA) governments? Your very lower back may be damaged soon,” she delivered.
