Catch me if you can, I’m a fighter, says Mamata Banerjee

Even as the Centre contradicted BJP leader Amit Shah’s claim that Saradha chit fund money was routed to Bangladesh for terror activities, the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday hit back at the BJP chief, saying “Catch me if you can... The surge of development will continue. I am a fighter. I will keep fighting. Counter me politically if you can”.

Banerjee, the Trinamool Congress chief, asserted in North Bengal on Wednesday inaugurated a slew of new projects, including  sports village. “Amake chamkale ami gorjai. Amake dhamkale ami borshai” (I roar if I am threatened. And if anybody tries to browbeat me then I pour out),” she said.

 “I never speak without evidence. I know my boundaries.Some people think they can say anything they want, just because a section of the media is supporting them,” Banerjee said to counter BJP president Amit Shah’s claim that Saradha chit fund money was used in the October for Burdwan blast.

Shah had said at a rally on November 30, “The Saradha chit fund money was used in the Burdwan blast. The NIA is not being allowed to probe the blast properly. Hurdles are being created. It is being done in order to save TMC leaders who are involved in the blast.” The Chief Minister said after inaugurating development projects for north Bengal, “We do not need money of chit funds. We arrested the kingpin of chit fund.”

On  a tour of the North Bengal districts, Banerjee said, “We are working for the betterment of people. People have elected us (to power) and our accountability is before the people”.

“Some shops sell bad food. Some shops sell good food. Similarly, some sections of the media sell bad news. We work for the people. They have voted me to power. I am accountable to the people”,  she said.
