NATIONAL | “I Was A Powerless CM…”: Mamata
Details: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said the Trinamool Congress (TMC) did not accept her resignation even if she tendered her resignation after the party’s poor performance in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections 2019 in the state.
Mamata said – “She was a powerless chief minister for the past five months.” Banerjee’s shocking statement came a day after the BJP won 303 seats and made inroads in West Bengal while the TMC bagged only 18 out of 42 Lok Sabha seats with a vote share of 40.5 per cent in the recently held 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Mamata said the BJP won by spreading lies and communal statements but she rejected its’s extremist Hindutva policy. Apart from that, she blamed faulty EVMs for the TMC’s loss.
