‘No matter how much you abuse me, will always work’

“No matter how much you (opposition parties and media) abuse me, I will keep working for the people,” Banerjee said at a programme here without elaborating.

Banerjee’s comment came at a time when Trinamool Congress has found itself in a corner in West Bengal over the ongoing probe in the Saradha ponzi scam in which some of its leaders have faced interrogation by CBI.

Transport Minister Madan Mitra and party MP Srinjoy Bose have been been arrested in connection with the scam. TMC general secretary Mukul Roy has been called by CBI to appear before it in connection with the scam. Banerjee without naming anyone also lashed out at communal politics.

“Religion doesn’t mean provoking one religion against another. Religion means existence of all views all religion under one roof. This is the heritage of our country, of our Bengal,” she said. “India means unity in diversity where all languages, all religion, all caste, all creed can stay together,” she said inaugurating the new electric cremation centre at Nimtala Burning Ghat in the city.

Calling for respect to all religions, the West Bengal chief minister said “United we stand, divided we fall. We respect all religions... Religion does not teach discrimination. Sadbhavana means sarva dharma samannyay.”

Virtually sounding the bugle for the Kolkata Municipal Corporation polls, West Bengal Chief Minister praised the TMC run board and asked the people to vote it back to power. “The present KMC board is working very well. They have carried various developmental works including restoration of heritage buildings, helping the slum dwellers. We all need to support those who are working well. You have to bring them back,” Banerjee who is also the TMC supremo said.

Mukul says he  isn’t involved in any immoral act
TMC general secretary Mukul Roy, who has been asked by CBI to appear before it in connection with the multi-crore Saradha ponzi scam, met party chief and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday. Soon after arriving at Kolkata from Delhi, Roy met her at the new state secretariat ‘Nabanna’ in Howrah. Roy did not take questions from the media after the meeting. However, earlier during the day, amid speculations that he might appear before CBI on Thursday.

Roy, a Rajya Sabha MP and former railway minister, said he would contact the agency and inform when he would appear. “I was in Delhi. I have come back. I’ll contact them (CBI). I will certainly inform when and what time I’ll go. I will also talk to our party leadership,” Roy told reporters here.
