West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday accused the Centre of trying throttle her government using the “agencies” and said she will not bow down before the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) even if she has to go to jail.
Referring to the CBI warrant against several Trinamool Congress state ministers and party leaders, she claimed that BJP was trying to capture West Bengal as her party protests and fights against the atrocities.
“They want to capture Bengal because we protest and fight against them. Our voice cannot be suppressed. We are not scared of death. We are not scared of agencies,” Banerjee said while addressing a student rally in Kolkata.
“Today they have summoned my brother, tomorrow they will summon me. I am prepared for that. I am ready to go to jail, but I will not bow down my head before the communal politics of the BJP,” she said while addressing the public.
“All the institutions are headed by retired persons. They are just following orders of the government like ‘yes men’. They have no accountability towards people,” she alleged.
