Mamata vows not to allow CAA in Bengal; Challenges BJP to cross even 200 seats

Krishnanagar: Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, mocked the BJP's goal of obtaining more than 400 seats in the Lok Sabha elections on Sunday and challenged the BJP to win at least 200 seats.

Furthermore, Banerjee declared that she would not permit the state to implement the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

She cautioned people that applying for CAA would turn an applicant into a foreigner and urged them not to apply for it.

"The BJP is saying "400 paar", I challenge them to cross the 200 seats benchmark first.

In 2021 assembly polls, they gave a call of 200 plus seats but had to stop at 77," she said.

"The CAA is a trap to turn legal citizens into foreigners. We would allow neither CAA nor NRC in West Bengal," she said while addressing her first rally in the election season after her injury earlier this month.

Banerjee, the TMC supremo, slammed the opposition bloc INDIA partners -- CPI(M) and Congress-- for "joining hands with the BJP" in West Bengal.

"There is no INDIA alliance in West Bengal. The CPI(M) and Congress are working for the BJP in Bengal," she said while addressing an election rally at Krishnanagar in support of TMC candidate Mahua Moitra.

"Our MP Mahua Moitra was maligned and expelled from the Lok Sabha as she was vocal against the BJP," she added.
