Kolkata: On the occasion of International Mother Language Day, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday challenged the BJP saying, “As long as there is life in my body, I am not afraid of anyone threatening me, it is not so easy to break my spine.”
Mamta made these remarks just before the CBI had issued a notice to Trinamool Youth President Abhishek Banerjee’s wife Rujira.
Addressing the Central Government, Mamata said, “Some leaders of Delhi have said that we know very well that how to break the backbone of Bengalis. We’ll say, don’t try. You already have tried many times so far. Don’t scare us by showing your intimidating jail threat.” Addressing the people she said, “I assure you, as long as there is life in my body, I am not afraid of anyone threatening me”. She clearly warned,” Do not come to hurt the emotions of Bengal. Because mothers and sisters of Bengal tie their hair as they cook”.
Accusing the Central Government, Mamata stated, “I love all languages. But why should I call Bengal ‘Bongal’?
Raising the slogan ‘Khela Habe’ which has been trending across the state recently, she said from the stage of Bhashadibas, “There will be only one game in ’21 and I will be the goalkeeper. Let’s see how many goals they can score? We have not learned to lose”.
